The internet is a proven and impactful resource for students. One of the reasons for this is that course text books, when they are actually disbursed for home use or for completion of homework assignments these days, frequently do not wholly or sufficiently explain exhibited or discussed concepts. There is limited space in printed textbooks, and unlimited space on the web that does not necessitate additional publication costs. The lack of sufficient or wholly explained course material in traditional textbooks is one of the major contributing factors to student underachievement and failure. If students are not taught or properly exposed to all course material that they are expected to know, of course, it will reflect in their performance.

Students with internet access can Google information for course/homework, and there are several homework sites out there, some that are legitimate and some that are not. A verified, school/district and/or Department of Education-based study site that would consist of all fully-explained core curriculum elements for each grade and each subject would save students the time and hassle of searching for trusted responses to their homework and/or other academic queries…

Students should be capable of creating log-ins for the site, or log-in information should be disbursed to each student by their respective schools. The site should also supersede or combine any and all other homework sites that are currently being utilized by individual instructors, and could consist of a perpetual tutoring chat feature, a save highlighting feature, quizzes that would reveal correct answers for missed problems and that would also be saved, progress charts, etc…

It would also be a trusted resource for adults, including instructors, parents, etc. who want to verify academic concepts that might be omitted from course text books or currently utilized versions. It could also be an SAT and/or ACT study resource, and serve as a platform for an eventual and wholly online student learning environment…
