Renaissance myON® Reader

Renaissance myON Reader is great for student engagement in reading! This platform provides many choices for students to make about their reading. This program also allows students to work on their reading level without showing their peers the book they are reading. Renaissance myON Reader pairs very well with the Renaissance platform and Accelerated Reader!Renaissance myON Reader would be less appropriate where internet access/devices are very limited

Udacity

Udacity is great for working professionals who want to continue their education by learning relevant technical job skills. The platform offers a well-produced content library with new courses added regularly. Overall, Udacity is best suited for individuals who need to gain technical industry experience and certifications in order to better perform in their workplaces. Udacity is a very valuable resource, however, I would not recommend it for all organizations - as there are more cost-friendly options on the market.

Cons

Renaissance myON® Reader

  • When using myON from a mobile device, the layout/icons can take some time to understand.

  • Quiz questions in some cases could be made clearer. I didn't feel the questions were always phrased in a way that I could easily understand what was being asked.
  • Requests for support can sometimes take a very long time to get resolved.
  • Cost structure changed from a fixed-price model to a subscription-only model, and prices are significantly increased as such.

They are already very good. But, would be great if Udacity improves the area of standardizing offline projects and exercises so that people could attempt to work offline. Including documentation on how to do it. More practical or real-world projects to choose and work on after course completion. Maybe a community can do it.

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!

I didn't personally have any issues with the program, but scheduling time to review the final project was easy, and the assistant was pleasant to work with.

Easier to use and has a better availability to students reading habits.

I combined my learning from various platforms and did on exclusively reply on any one. However, the free courses in Udacity lacks the comprehensiveness as Coursera.

  • I am already in a great position as a CTO with a great company. I hope to be able to build some new technology with what I am learning, but I haven't applied any of it yet to my own real-world problems. I will though.
