Grade Results Delivers Distance Learning to 80+ US Schools Using WizIQ
Grade Results, the leading innovator of live, one-to-one online instruction, had one mission in mind before they launched their online tutoring business- To help students excel and reach personal goals and aid schools in increasing student achievement.
Grade Results realized that absence of one-to-one teacher-student interaction and user-friendly technology were amongst the key issues plaguing schools everywhere, leading to dropping student grades. They decided to leverage the power of technology to enhance learning outcomes.
Since the technology used in schools did not match the way students used technology in their personal lives, it was important for Grade Results to reach students with a medium they understand and a product that is effective.
They began looking for a cutting-edge technology partner that would offer a unique combination of online learning and tangible, human interaction. They came across WizIQ Virtual Classroom in 2007 and were impressed by the range of features it offered, right from multi-way audio and video controls to an interactive whiteboard for drawing shapes and displaying content in the live class.
The user-friendly interface of the WizIQ Virtual Classroom was a big advantage. Instructors had no trouble in getting used to the virtual interface and students loved the new, interactive classroom. WizIQ Virtual Classroom allowed teachers and students to chat in real time and stay engaged throughout the session.
More than half of the students came to Grade Results to study algebra. Instructors therefore needed a powerful whiteboard that allowed them to perform mathematical calculations in the class. The whiteboard in the WizIQ Virtual Classroom not only met this requirement, but also enabled the instructors to access their Content Library in the live classroom and display multiple content files like documents, presentations, videos, etc.
Grade Results are currently conducting 1500 live, virtual classes on the WizIQ Virtual Classroom and their efforts have attracted more than 30,000 students across the US. They are currently serving more than 80+ schools across US and providing a comprehensive set of services to public, private, charter and alternative schools, as well as community colleges and universities.
Besides providing K-12 courses on different subjects like algebra, language arts, science, social studies, etc., Grade Results provides college entry exam prep, and a full range of college courses too.
