Want to give teachers more time back? Give them online curriculum tools.

The average teacher spends ten hours a week or more on planning, preparing lessons, and grading, according to national surveys. With the average teacher working 54 hours per week, curriculum overload continuing to rise, and teacher job satisfaction hitting all-time lows, districts need to figure out how to give teachers time back.

Online, easy-to-use curriculum tools can be a great time-saving option for overworked teachers. Your district or school can help teachers cut down a lot of the prep and grading work they do today.

How Online Curriculum Tools Save Teachers Time

Pre-Made Online Lessons

online curriculum tools

Most online curriculum tools and courses come with digital lessons that teachers can customize or use as-is. Depending on the tool, teachers get built-in texts, videos, lesson plans, and activities all in one place. That means they don’t have to scramble to put together a lesson.

Some online curriculum tools emphasize having multiple learning modalities for each lesson. For example, at Yeti Academy, our courses use the 7E learning model to cover different stages and styles of learning:

  • Engage: Warm-up assignments designed to introduce new ideas and get students interested.
  • Explain: Texts and illustrations that explain the facts, cover new vocabulary, and come with questions that can be used as assignments or discussion topics.
  • Empower: Digital flashcards and a timed quiz that gives students the opportunity to practice the vocabulary, facts, and details from each lesson.
  • Elaborate: Hands-on activities, labs, group activities, or other activities that give students practical experience with the subject matter.
  • Evaluate: A graded self-assessment with immediate feedback and teacher reports.
  • Explore: Articles, videos, and career connections that let students probe deeper and explore real-world applications — an ideal option for early finishers.
  • Enrich: An additional project-based or hands-on approach to learning which may include conducting research, preparing a presentation, or otherwise digging deeper.

Automatic Grading and Progress Tracking

Feedback is an important part of the learning process. With an online curriculum tool, it’s much easier to give real-time feedback. Teachers can use built-in or customized quizzes and activities that are automatically graded, which helps them save time on grading.

Some of these tools also have built-in reporting features that show students’ progress beyond graded activities. For example, Yeti Academy’s reporting tools can show which activities students completed, how well they did, and how much time students have spent inside the platform.

Easy Set-up and Integration With the LMS

Yeti Academy lets you use registration, rostering, and single sign-on with a variety of LMS tools. We can work with Google Classroom, ClassLink, .csv uploads, and other LMS options.

We also have plenty of customer support options, including a world-class success team teachers can call during school hours. We have a video library to help teachers get started and a comprehensive solution center.
