1. How many versions do you offer?

Three; there are two versions for home users and one for schools.

2. How do the school version and the 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 and results.

The school version has many more management functions than the home versions and is designed around use within an academic calendar.

In the school version it is possible to manage multiple classes and sites, import class rosters, and perform maintenance functions.

3. Why are there two home versions?

One home version gives parents or tutors the ability to monitor a student's work. The other is for self-learners.

The option to set up either a self-learner account, or a parent/tutor account is given to home users when they log in to their Merit Online Learning account for the first time.

4. I am tutoring more than one student; should I buy a school version?

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 will be able to import a list of student names into the system and export records of students' progress.

5. Are school versions only for use at school buildings?

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