Option for a full online program with videos

I know this might sound like a lot of work...possible that this curriculum could be fully online with video lessons?
Either having live classes going through the curriculum (Zoom) or pre recorded lessons?
As a parent who suddenly has to work as an essential, I am scratching my head as to how to continue using the curriculum while we all have to work. We have been having tutors lead the lessons remotely. However, with college starting everyone's schedule is switching and it just might be cheaper and easier schedule wise to have the kids go online with videos and teachers leading the lessons. Perhaps for the older kids it might work better (3rd grade and up) and then one of us can focus on the younger ones when we get home. Trying to juggle it all here.

It is unlikely that this will be an option with our curriculum. We are what is called a "paper and pencil" curriculum and it is a model that we are proud to provide. I certainly understand the constraints faced by so many in these times. It is possible that this may not be the best curriculum choice for your family at this time.

Maybe your local fb groub for homeschoolers has a group of MBTP users who's parent/teacher would consider teaching via zoom. And perhaps they could record the experiments or hands on activities... Worth the ask. Then the more hands on stuff could be done with your kids when you are home or weekends or whatever fits in your schedule.

There is a fairly active Facebook group that is not affiliated with the company called "Homeschooling with Moving Beyond the Page". There are over 3000 people on there who use our curriculum.

Yes I currently I have a tutor teaching him the lessons and projects remotely but maybe others might want to join in which would reduce the cost for us and increase the pay for her. That way the kids can have some discussion and interaction with others kids too. I was even thinking at one point doing it on outschool but got busy.

This is Keith with Moving Beyond the Page.

Thanks for reaching out with your question. If I understand correctly, as long as each family is purchasing their own copy of the curriculum, I think coming together for zoom classes with a group of others that have also purchased their own copy of the curriculum (online or hard-copy) there should be no problem.

Our curriculum has a family friendly license. You can use one license of the online curriculum for multiple siblings in the same family, but children from different families will each need their own license.

Let me know if you have additional questions, or if I have misunderstood your query.

Keith
