What is Outschool?

Outschool is a “live online marketplace for students ages 3-18. Classes include interaction with real people (teachers, and classmates) in video chats, messages, and group discussion.” It harnesses the power of the Internet to match teachers working from home with children across the country in their own homes.

Many of the classes are academic skills development classes, but often with a twist that allows the teacher and children to connect through a shared interest while teaching/learning basic academic skills.

How does Outschool work?

Classes are live and recorded, taught using Zoom. Students can access their own camera and microphone to communicate with the teacher and other students as if it were a real classroom.

If a student is away, they can also access the recorded lesson at their leisure
