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
