The Chrome Compass
Compass Learning’s Odyssey classroom content is now available for use on Chromebooks, expanding its usefulness as schools consider Google’s platform. All of Compass’s pre-K through 12 content is available, including six Advanced Placement courses. The best part is that the material looks and acts just like it does on a PC or Mac.
Students get access to a wide variety of lessons that are paced to their individual learning styles as well as assessments that include fill-in, multiple choice, drag and drop as well as written material. Teachers can share lessons, set up community forums for online discussions and get to just about any item with a well-designed Dashboard. They can see who is leading and lagging in their lessons as well as compile a variety of reports for administrators. The program costs roughly $90 per student for a school of 250.
