- Instructional videos help kids learn new concepts, review old ones, or hear something explained in a different way. As an App and a site, this service lets kids find experts explaining and showing how to tackle lots of school-related material.
- Great for teens who want their vocabulary lessons gamified. As kids play the game and answer the questions, the difficulty adjusts to their level and rewards them with points (which might keep them playing longer than strict drill practice).
- Offers teens study help and test prep with a twist. ITs the tone of the site that sets it apart, as its wry humor and teen-speak makes its novel summaries and SAT prep more palatable.

- An engaging combination of fantasy-based game and math practice, this adventure also escapes dull drills. Available as a Website or an App
- Like a Goodreads for kids, this site lets kids log their reading, rate books, and ears rewards for reading. It’s great for reluctant readers who might trust another kid’s endorsement about a book.
