1. How many versions do you offer?

Four; there are two versions for schools and two versions for home users.

2. What is in a school version?

Schools have a choice of using individual teacher accounts or an administrative version with privileges to support multiple teachers and classes.

3. What is in a home version?

Home users can use a version for self-learners or a parent/tutor version which provides the ability to monitor a student's work.

4. How do the school versions and home versions compare?

All versions of Merit programs have the same content. All users have their own personalized home pages. All users access their Merit programs through the Merit Online Learning portal, and all users can see their coursework.

5. I am working with more than one student. Which version should I get?

Tutors with a few students will find the parent/tutor option to be more convenient than the school version.

This option allows tutors to view and print student work. With this option your students are entered into the Merit Online Learning system by filling in a form for each student.

School versions are suitable for tutors if you have a large tutoring business following an academic year cycle and you have classes of learners.

With the school version, you can import a list of student names into the system and export records of students' progress.

6. Are school versions only for use in school buildings?

Students can use school versions anywhere, enhancing opportunities for both in-school and after-school learning.
