Brightstorm

"Brightstorm is an online learning network for teens, teachers and parents. We founded the company with the belief that great learning starts with great teaching and wanted to give every student the opportunity to learn from the world's best teachers. We've assembled recognized teachers from around the country to develop video-based classes, offered in short, personalized formats that map to the way teens consume digital content. Each of our courses cover the core topics commonly taught in high school subjects across the United States and are designed to help high school students in classes where they need additional help in order reach their full potential and do better in school. Our courses complement in-school learning - helping teens fill in gaps and cement their knowledge to improve grades.

For students, they're given the choice of teachers and the opportunity to learn from some of the best teachers. With an on-demand format, students can go at their own pace, choose their own order, and easily jump to any section in the video to parallel their own class to tailor to their own learning needs. Each course includes interactive quizzes, facts as well as bonus materials like practice problems and study guides that they use with the videos to gain a deeper understanding of the subject.

"Free sample episodes are available, but you have to pay to view a course.
