Teachers love the flipped classroom

Teachers around the country are flipping their classroom and having great success. We recently surveyed 400 teachers who use Sophia and found that 85 percent of those who have flipped their classroom have seen improved grades and nearly all who have tried it would recommend it to others.

An Exciting Day for Sophia!

The site now offers more than 25,000 free academic tutorials taught in a variety of ways by hundreds of teachers and education enthusiasts. We also are introducing Sophia Pathways, which lead students on a learning journey, and launching a learning preference assessment where students can uncover the way they learn best by completing a short questionnaire.
