Religion 9 Online is aligned to the current print course. The academic content of each daily assignment is the same, so students can use the online and print course interchangeably. Students using the online version can login to the online course to review their assigned readings, watch videos, and interact with course content.
The content is synced between the two versions of the course so that switching is easy and can be done at any time. No matter which day your student is on in Religion 9, he or she can switch to the online version and continue on that same day with no problem. The difference will be in the optimized experience of the content. Alternately, if you decide the online version is not for you, you can go back to using your paper lesson plans with no progress lost.
Seton has invested in industry-leading systems and technology to deliver our intellectually rich and authentically Catholic material more successfully. We pray this makes your homeschool experience even better.
