Interestingly, Edmentum is part of the history of PLATO, among the original pioneers of online learning, which was invented in 1960 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. PLATO, now known as Edmentum Courseware, was an answer to a pressing need for greater access to high-quality education.
Today, Edmentum Courseware offers high-quality, standards-based, customizable digital curriculum to learners from grade 6 through adult with over 400 courses and 30,000 hours of instruction.
When students enter middle and high school, their interests, skills, and plans for the future impact the courses they need to take to be ready for the next step. This award-winning system helps schools and districts address students needs with courses that cover a breadth of subjects including core (featuring seven new high school math and ELA mini-courses built to address learning loss and skill gaps), Advanced Placement, CTE, electives, world languages and college readiness. Over 1,250 districts across the country utilize Courseware for blended and virtual learning so students can continue their education no matter their location.
Easy-to-use customization and user-friendly reporting allow educators to individualize learning and track progress in real time to ensure program goals are met.
