This section of the site is focused on students of all ages as they are in their prime learning years. Parents and teachers alike surely know the challenges of getting kids interested in studying, much less expecting them to want to study and learn. Education.com managed to create a fun and interesting way for them to not only learn, but enjoy doing so. They may even want to show friends what they have learned, such as stacking liquids of various densities to make a colorful multi-liquid rainbow!

Usability: 4.5

You are able to choose the lesson plans with a drop-down menu that splits them into categories or grade levels. They have quick access to other features as well in the main menu. Feel like sharing something? Social media buttons are located conveniently on the left of the page, and they provide a search box for those looking for something specific.

Knowledge is a beautiful thing, and the appeal of this site represents that beauty. It uses a laid-back color scheme that isn’t too bold, but not too boring either. The way everything comes together, from navigation to content, is easy to read and learn. The relaxing design only helps with the process. The lessons are provided in a convenient grid layout as well.

Price: 5.0

Learning is a great thing, and Education.com offers certain information at no cost for the user. They have nicely placed ads that earn their revenue, but are not overly distracting like on other sites.

They do provide a premium version that comes in three packages, Personal, Teacher, and Unlimited. These provide full access to every worksheet and lesson Education.com has.

Utility: 4.5

In fact, with some kids, keeping their interest while they also retain the information is extremely challenging. We believe that kids simply have to find the correct method that keeps their interest and makes learning fun, and we think this site offers that combination, as they provide various types of lesson plans and worksheets. This makes it great for in-home use as well as a classroom setting.
