Wonderville just became available to the public and lets teachers (or parents) create virtual classrooms (for free) with content and multiple choice questions where children’s progress can be monitored. It’s focusing on K-5 content now.

It looks like it might be one of the better sites of its kind, though it’s perplexing to me why they’d include a YouTube video as a key part of each lesson — since YouTube is blocked by most schools, that means students won’t be able to view them there.

And it also seems strange they would pick a name — Wonderville — that’s already been used for years for a highly-respected science website.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.
