Question concerning ALEKS, Instantcert
My daughter is home schooled and I'm looking for way for her to gain collage credit.
I have been reading this forum and looking at some of the web-sites but I can't seem to find the one answer that I need.
I'm on a satellite, I only get 10gb per month for computer, does ALEKS , ,InstantCert and any other sites I may need use videos or anything that would use up my gb.
I'm not an expert in this, so I can just answer the questions about videos. ALEKS, IC, Straighterline are not video-based. is.

Just a quick caveat, ALEKS's ACE-recommendation is expiring on 11/30/16, and we don't know when/if it will be renewed, so I would probably not start that unless she can finish a course before the 30th. But don't worry, there are plenty of other ways to get college credit for math (Saylor, Straighterline, Shmoop, CLEP, etc.).

With, video is optional. Not every lesson has video (though most do), but all the video does is "illustrate" word for word the transcript of the lesson right below the video.

Aside from watching 2 or 3 vids (before I caught on that they were verbatim following the printed lessons), I completed both of my classes with just the printed lessons and the included flashcards. Smile
