At this time, the main difference is that the paid course has PDFs of all materials needed to teach full lessons. The free courses for Foundations and Essentials contain instructional videos for phonogram introduction, phonogram flashcard practice, and spelling analysis for each lesson. These videos are also in our paid courses.
We are in the process of putting the rest of the lesson content on video and adding this content as well as interactive activities to the paid courses. If you purchase the paid courses at this time you will have access to PDFs of all materials as well as the interactive activities and any video content we have produced at this time and will have instant access to materials as we continue to add them to the courses. The goal is to have the full lessons for Essentials and Foundations on video and available in the paid courses. We are unsure of the timeline of how long this will take but we are working diligently to produce content quickly and make it available as soon as possible.
All of our online courses can be found on our online learning platform. There is no cost or obligation to create an account.
