Instruction

Edgenuity’s direct-instruction videos feature expert, on-screen teachers who explain concepts, model strategies, provide examples, and make real-world connections.

Students stop to complete tasks that check for understanding. They can also pause or rewind videos to take notes or review concepts as they progress through instruction at their own pace.
