Students can watch videos in class or at home. As they complete exercises, they can earn “energy points” and badges, such as the Copernicus for students who achieve proficiency in 200 skills.

TRACK PROGRESS

Teachers receive real-time data that track the progress of individual students. Color-coded boxes help the teacher quickly identify which students are struggling or doing well.
