Making the Most of Your High School Budget:
How AlwaysOnline™ Can Help your School do More with Less
As a high school administrator, you are constantly challenged to provide a high-quality education to your students while working within a tight budget. Between hiring and retaining quality teachers, purchasing new textbooks, and implementing new technologies, it can be difficult to find the resources needed to ensure student success.
Fortunately, with the advent of AlwaysOnline™, high schools have the opportunity to provide students with a high-quality education without breaking the bank.
What is the AlwaysOnline™ Curriculum and LMS?
AlwaysOnline™ is an online curriculum and private-label learning management system that includes a catalog of more than 50 online courses. Supported by a team of more than 100 credentialed teachers, customer service staff, software engineers, and IT specialists, AlwaysOnline™ is designed to integrate seamlessly into your school’s existing website, using your school’s branding and look and feel.
$125 Per Course
AlwaysOnline™ provides schools with the flexibility to get started quickly and without any up-front costs. Our curriculum of courses is priced at $125 per student, with no other fees or costs.
With no up-front costs or long-term contracts, schools can use AlwaysOnline™ to test the waters of online learning without making a significant financial investment. If AlwaysOnline™ works well for your school, you can continue to use the system on a pay-per-student basis. And if for any reason you decide to discontinue using AlwaysOnline™, there are no long-term contracts or penalties.
Support for Online and Hybrid Learning
With the rise of online and hybrid learning models, AlwaysOnline™ is designed to support the changing needs of high schools. Our system can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, which means that students can learn at home, in the classroom, or on the go. This flexibility makes it easier for schools to provide a high-quality education to their students, no matter where they are located.
AlwaysOnline™ provides support for hybrid learning models, where students split their time between online and in-person instruction. With AlwaysOnline™, teachers can easily assign and grade assignments, track student progress, and provide feedback, no matter where the students are located.
Save Costs Associated with Teachers Creating Curriculum
One of the biggest expenses for schools is the cost of creating curriculum. With AlwaysOnline™, you can save costs associated with teachers creating curriculum, as we provide a comprehensive catalog of high school courses that are ready to use. Our courses are developed by experienced teachers, ensuring that they meet high academic standards and are designed to provide students with a high-quality learning experience.
SAVE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH TEACHERS LECTURING
Another way that AlwaysOnline™ can help schools save costs is by replacing traditional teacher-led lectures with our online videos. Our videos can be replayed as many times as the student needs to master the materials, allowing for a more personalized learning experience. This means you can reduce the need for teachers to lecture, freeing up more time for one-on-one interactions with students and providing a more personalized learning experience for each student.
Save Costs Associated with Operating Traditional Classrooms
The traditional classroom setting is no longer necessary for lectures. Instead, students can watch pre-recorded video lectures at home, freeing up physical classroom space. This means schools can reduce the number of physical classrooms they need, resulting in significant cost savings in real estate, lighting, heating, air conditioning and associated mortgage and maintenance costs. By reducing the dependence on the physical classroom, schools can redirect their resources to other important areas of education, such as hiring more teachers or investing in technology.
SAVE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH TEACHERS GRADING QUIZZES, UNIT TESTS AND FINALS
AlwaysOnline™ offers an automated grading system for quizzes, unit tests, and finals. This means that you can save costs associated with teachers grading these materials manually. The system automatically grades quizzes and tests, freeing up more time for teachers to focus on providing one-on-one support to their students.
SAVE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH TEACHERS GRADING ASSIGNMENTS
AlwaysOnline™ provides recommended grades for assignments. This means that you can save costs associated with teachers grading assignments manually. Our credentialed teachers provide student feedback as well as recommended grades for assignments, freeing up more time for teachers to focus on providing one-on-one support to their students.
SAVE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH TEACHERS ANSWERING STUDENT QUESTIONS
Teachers often spend a significant amount of time answering student questions, which can take away from their ability to provide one-on-one support and facilitate classroom discussions. With AlwaysOnline™, our team of experienced, credentialed teachers answers student questions online, which saves time for teachers and ensures that students receive accurate and timely responses to their questions.
Save Costs Associated with IT Staff Necessary to Install and Manage a Learning Management System
Another cost associated with implementing a learning management system is the need for IT staff to install and manage it. With AlwaysOnline™, we provide a turn-key solution that is easy to set up and integrate with your existing website. We offer it under a private label model, which allows it to be seamlessly embedded in your school’s website, creating a cohesive and consistent learning experience for your students. This means you don’t need to invest in servers, software, and other hardware to run your LMS, saving you both time and money.
Save IT Costs Associated with Running Your Own Learning Management System
Running your own learning management system can be costly, especially if you don’t have a dedicated IT team to manage it. With AlwaysOnline™, we handle the technical details of setting up and maintaining your own LMS. Our system is designed with cybersecurity in mind, with rigorous security protocols and ongoing monitoring to ensure that your system is secure and protected from hackers and other malicious actors. This means you can focus on providing a high-quality education for your students, without having to worry about the technical details of setting up and maintaining your own LMS.
Save Costs Associated with Students Having Questions About Using the LMS and Online Curriculum
AlwaysOnline™ offers online customer service staff 24×7 to answer questions from students. This means that you can save costs associated with students having questions about using the LMS and online curriculum. Our customer service staff is available to answer any questions that students may have, freeing up more time for teachers to focus on providing one-on-one support to their students.
Save Costs Associated with Hiring Additional Teachers
With the current shortage of qualified teachers in many areas, it can be difficult for schools to attract and retain quality teachers. By using AlwaysOnline™, you can provide your teachers with the resources they need to teach effectively, without the need to develop their own curriculum or lecture. With AlwaysOnline™, your existing teachers will be more efficient and effective when released from the burden of lecturing and grading. This means that you won’t need to hire additional teachers to handle increased course loads or to replace teachers who leave due to burnout or dissatisfaction. By increasing teacher job satisfaction and reducing turnover rates, AlwaysOnline™ can help you save money on recruitment and training costs associated with hiring new teachers.
