Renaissance Learning

I teach 5th/6th grade math and science, but I love finding fun books to explain science and math concepts using books that keep the students engaged. I can make sure to give them several options on their reading level to choose from and know I am meeting a majority of my students needs because they can listen to other book be read if they so choose. My students have learned so much from science graphic novels!

For some of the topics in my organization, Skillsoft Academy is best suited due to the length of the course and the ease to understand. However, the courses are very limited being a Cloud user. There are various platforms that offer a wide range of courses for Cloud. Though Skillsoft offers many courses, they are easy to understand which makes the user comfortable with the platform.

Cons

Renaissance Learning

  • I could never figure it out.
  • Students levels from their STAR test did not translate into the books suggested on myON.
  • The platform is cumbersome and inaccessible for students and teachers.
  • I am fairly tech-savvy, but I could never navigate through and understand how myON worked. Eventually, I gave up and switched to Epic.
  • The book selection was poor. Only the non-fiction books were interesting to my students. None of the popular titles and authors were available.
  • It was a big disappointment and frustration for me and my students.

      I believe this product provides students with faster and easier access to books. This increases their time spent on task reading. myON reader is a product that is great for students and teachers.
      If there are any issues and concerns while using myON, there are many help resources available to offer assistance.
      myON Reader works so well with the rest of the Renaissance Platform. This consistency is great for everyone!
