It is surprising that I’m writing a post regarding my excitement about the teacher in-service website. There is no shortage of sites that have a host of videos trying to train teachers about various subjects. The problem with all of the sites is that most of the videos you find are painfully boring to watch, and seemed to drag on forever.
Kyte Learning is an exception to this rule. So far I have only been through a few of the tutorials, but they were both interesting, very focused, and provided me with everything I needed to know to get started. The complete courses range from 30 minutes up to an hour and a half depending on the difficulty of the software or skill they are trying to teach. The presenters have seen so far have been entertaining, clear, and easy to understand.
Kyte Learning is primarily focused on working with technology in education. Currently, there are many topics that are covered, but there still seem to be a lot of areas that they can continue to grow. Based on some of my discussions with people from the company, they are still actively growing their content library.
You can set up a free account that will let you preview some of the content and see if it’s a good match for you, if you like what you see the subscription will cost you seven dollars a month, or $75 a year. With the current content library, I think that seven dollars a month is a fair price, but as they continue to grow it will quickly become a bargain. I just hope that they will leave this price structure intact, rather than raising it as their library grows.
