    I'm looking for a Language Arts/Spelling/grammar prgoram on the computer. My daughter is using Teaching Textbooks for math and she LOVES it. Looking for something similar. We tried Switched on Schoolhouse, but found the program itself hard to use. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I was very disappointed with SOS. They simply imported some workbook materials into an open source courseware system. The tossed a few videos in so they could call it multimedia.

    Because the content was originally a paper workbook, the questions were not designed with computer input in mind. The data entry process in many if not most cases is very clunky and awkward.

    Very clunky and awkward! I like the idea of it and how it grades everything and keeps track of grades, but actually using it was not so great.
