Nuskool blends entertainment elements and real world topics into middle and high school lessons to make the lessons more appealing, especially to struggling students. Individual teachers and parents can purchase NuSkool for a daily/monthly/annual subscription, while groups can purchase the product at a discounted price.
NuSkool uses entertainment elements from TV to music and video games as topics to produce articles, lesson plans, quizzes and other types of assessments. Teachers may create unlimited student accounts and add the students in virtual classes in NuSkool. Teachers then assign NuSkool’s content to their students and can also facilitate private group discussions on each assignment. An example of a lesson is “The Physics of Iron Man”. Students first watch a short Youtube clip of Iron Manflying off and then analyze the physics of flight using formulas.
NuSkool is available on any modern browser.
Individual teachers and parents can purchase NuSkool for $1.99 per day / $7 per month / $70 per year and a discounted price for group plans. Users gain access to create unlimited student accounts and to use the complete library of lesson plans, articles and assessments.
