If you are growing quickly and need to give first time people managers a resource to learn the basics this is a good tool. If you have established leaders this is not a good tool for them. It covers the basics and ABCs of people management and does not go much further than that.

I think this is a great tool for middle school students, as they are starting to become aware of the world around them and topics that are going on in our country and world. In this digital age, students need to learn the difference between "fake news" and unbiased news reports. The interactive features, as well as letting them read articles based off their interests, is perfect for middle school aged children.

Renaissance has always had a great online help section with videos and articles. They also have an online community for users to discuss ways to use their products. They have free webinars available to users as well. Most one-on-one learning sessions are done by our instructional facilitators in our county

I have not used any other products like Jhana and I am not sure of what else would be out there. So it is hard to explain how Jhana has stacked up. I would image it stacks up well against anything else. My guess is that other tools feel a lot more corporate.

I like myON News more than any other product due to the variety of articles along with providing different Lexile levels. The Comprehension questions are also a great added feature. This is the complete package website, you have everything you need in one site. Students do not have to go to multiple websites to complete the activities.
