We are now using Cyber-Ed for the second time, Earth and Space, as my 12 year old son LOVED his previous "online science program", Life Science. The graphics are wonderful and the "whole learning" concept is great. Each Lesson is highly visual and has the option of listening to and/or reading along. The Applications have just the right amount of interaction. The Tests are cumulative of that lesson and are graded immediately. The student then has the chance to retake the test if they, or you, are not satisfied with their grade. My son always tr...(more)

Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity. I was overwhelmed by what our children needed to know and it is ALL right here at THEIR fingertips! They love it.

A few evenings ago, after both had had some genetics material (one from Life Science and one from Biology), we watch a science channel program which reinforced this; and all this learning led to an hour discussion regarding how interesting this field is, potential discoveries and possible career choices!! All led by the girls! They love the interactive learning and can't wait to...(more)

My girls look forward to Plato. It is a secular science program. However, we feel it is so well-done and enjoyable that we "tune-out" the billions of years ago statements. Plato gets an A+! We conquer the mastery tests online and then we do the paper tests. It's challenging and yet very palatable. It keeps my girls' attention who need to learn using the auditory senses. It's a superior science program.

I was looking for a science offering for my daughter, who is 10. The middle school science curriculum we had tried before was too dumbed down both in terms of the content, and how it was presented. PLATO science has been very good for us. It is rigorous and challenging, and yet still presented in an engaging way. It also stresses higher order thinking rather than just memorization. I think it is a good fit for gifted or accelerated students. While most of the lessons are on-line, there are also several off-line activities. These are "worksheet"...(more)

My son is a big science fan and this is the first program he has taken that has kept him engaged and challenged. He likes that it is self-paced and he can do as much or as little as his time and interest allow. I like it because it is easy to see his progression and where he needs extra work. The mix of online and offline activities is important to get the complete experience. We have tried other science programs, but they either required way too much prep time for me, moved too slowly or were at a level that was inappropriate for a whip-smart ...(more)

I cannot say enough good things about Plato learning! Unaware of the format, I accidently ordered ALL four of your courses for my son at the same time. He's slightly advanced in science, as he was in fourth grade at the time, but he LOVED them! He completed all four of them within the year. Now, three years later, I'm back and ordering for my daughter. She is whipping through lessons like crazy, and is happy to hear: "Ooo ooo! Go do your science!"

The CyberEd Physical science presented concepts with clarity. Our boys really liked the interactive nature of the presentation and we appreciated the step by step progression to solidify their foundation with the curriculum we were using. We plan to use it again this year.

I am just thrilled with the Cyber-ed courses we've purchased through the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op. My younger child has been speeding through middle school life science, and my older homeschooler has been enjoying the high school level biology. The lessons are very comprehensive and presented in an engaging manner, but without gratuitous cartoon characters or goofy professors. We've also purchased subscriptions to two additional Cyber-ed courses. It's an incredible value for the relatively small investment we made.
Lorel Shea, co-op member/ Gifted Education editor
I bought three of the CyberEd programs during the first group buy,physical,life and earth and space, for my sons ages 10 and 12. We were unable to complete all three during the year and I am participating in the current buy. We were pleasantly surprised to find the programs are so thorough and in-depth. I will not say that my kids love these programs and beg to do them because that is not the case. Instead I will share with you what my 10 year old recently said about the programs. "They're not my favorite and it takes a lot of time to do it but...(more)

The Plato courseware has been a gift for my 15 year old son. It is the first courseware that is age appropriate that engages him because it combines audio-visual learning and he gets to interact with it rather than passively read a textbook. I couldn't ask for more, as the homeschooling parent - Plato provides structures lessons, benchmarks progress, provides quizzes and mastery tests (which you can take or not). Very importantly, it allows my highschooler to be responsible for his progress. We hope Plato will always be available to the Co-...(more)
