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.

Teachable

Teachable should be banned from advertising that they have an unlimited plan. This is untrue and we were not the first to be given an ultimatum of paying their ransom or having all of our students be kicked off. I'm sure we won't be the last.

Cons

Study Island

  • The program would be great with seasonal games.

Teachable

  • They FALSELY ADVERTISE their services.
  • They kicked us off their "unlimited" plan b/c we were using serving too many downloads?
  • They were terribly rude, cursing at us, threatening us, deleting our forum questions.
  • They have no unlimited plan and need to be sued in a court of law for their misleadings.

Alternatives Considered

Study Island

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.

Teachable

Thinkific is light years beyond Teachable. Thinkific is wonderful. Their UI is better. They have much better customer service and don't falsely advertise their services. Teachable is the opposite of everything good.

Return on Investment

Study Island

  • It has put teachers on the same page since we are all using the same platform
  • It has improved student test scores and retention
  • It has given us a platform to create and give student assessments in a fun way outside the typical classroom setting

  • We were out the money and time of loading all courses onto Teachable, paying their fees, and then having to scramble to transfer thousands of students to another platform and pay all the setups again.
