In addition to offering over 15,000 high-quality Web sites handpicked by our in-house Education Specialists, the newly refurbished Web Library portal also delivers over 500 prepackaged, BASCOM Lessons. These online interactive activities provide focused learning by guiding students to only those sites needed to perform a lesson. This enables a teacher to quickly use Web-enriched curriculum and to easily manage their classroom while using the Internet to teach.
The new Web Library Basic Edition also delivers instant access to the Faculty Room. As an open resource available anytime, anywhere, the Faculty Room provides a home on the Web to support our busy teachers. "BASCOM's commitment to education has led to the development of this site," states Peter Cirasole, BASCOM's President/CEO. "We recognize that teachers have little extra time during their school day and need a place on the Web to assist them in developing curriculum at home."
Each month BASCOM's Education Specialists choose one site from the Web Library as "The Site of the Month." This site is featured because it offers students an outstanding, interactive learning experience. BASCOM archives all previously honored sites so teachers have instant access to a collection of exceptional sites.
