This is a common problem for many teachers all around the world. So, here is a list of such online resources. Each of these links have their own niche and depending upon the need of the instructor and the class response, these can give great results.

So much has happend so quickly to promote the use of iPads in the education system. I think that this app seems to be very user friendly and allows use without having to have an account with IXL. However, this article does not show me what this app can do that cannot be done in a regular classroom setting. Yes, the students can get trophies for the work they do. This however can be a problem for students who struggle as they will feel as though their effort is not being rewarded.
