The rise of online learning has shifted learning norms indefinitely, classrooms do not exist in just physical spaces but virtual learning is in vogue. Pandemic-proof learning means students get to gather online and learn anywhere. Aside from child-centric classes, even higher education and professional programs have online offerings as well.
We take a look at six virtual learning platforms that allow parents to choose enrichment and academic programmes for their children. The ease, convenience and myriad of options make online classes highly accessible and attractive.
Formerly known as MySavvyTutor, Knovo offers a platform for parents to select and reserve classes by private tutors, tuition centres and enrichment centres online. At one glance, one can see the various options from Coding development, Chinese enrichment to Debate classes. Parents can also find an instructor, view credentials and experience as well as reviews from parents. The platform also allows for assignments to be completed and submitted electronically.
As a parent, I like how Knovo was an aggregator for various education providers and tutors. At one glance or one search, I could see a myriad of options and prices. There were also non-academic classes such as debate classes run by Red Dot Academy, TV production by Scott Rosenvelt and even Basics to Vodcasting.

We recently tried Outschool and was pleasantly surprised by the myriad of classes available. From themed drawing classes, learning about gems and rocks, sign language, sharks right down to Self-esteem classes taught by teachers across the globe.
Prices of the classes were very reasonable. This offers options to try different classes of various themes. We can also see ratings of the teacher published and reviews written as well.
