    Skillsoft Academy

    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.

    Study Island

    Over all, I was very impressed with my experience using Study Island. I think that it provides a great resource for teachers of larger groups of students. On the other hand, it may not be as worthwhile of an investment in a small group or individual student level. All in all, kids love this program, and it provides teachers with an in-depth look at how a child is progressing or understanding the content/standard being covered in the Study Island activity. The colors are fun, the graphics are fun, and the questions are nicely organized and customizable.

    [I selected Skillsoft Academy because it's] much easier to use and has relevant courses. I would like to give 4.5 stars to the course selection, delivery, content, and exams

    I didn't choose Study Island over Renaissance Accelerated Math. Study Island doesn't offer the in-depth review of standards over and over like Renaissance Accelerated Math does. Plus, Renaissance Accelerated Math also makes them wait 2 weeks then re-introduces the standards they have mastered to make sure they still have that mastery, and if they don't, it makes them re-do that standard.
