    Study Edge materials deliver content in video lessons taught by master teachers. Used together, the video lessons can serve as the primary or sole text for a course. Used individually, they can provide supplemental instruction to help students succeed. Teachers report that the video lessons are useful in many ways including

    • as student support (tutoring, homework help)
    • as differentiated instruction
    • for reviewing concepts
    • to help students with extended absences
    • to create a flipped or blended class
    • to help substitute teachers
    • for teacher content knowledge support
