Attributes of the Online Component of INSOC Programs

The International School of Canada (INSOC) is an online educational space that incorporates highly-engaging tutorials and do-at-your-own-pace flexibility into any secondary school curriculum. Because our lessons are entirely Internet-accessible, the only equipment needed is a computer (Macintosh or PC). Through our use of stimulating video, audio, and effective simulations, the INSOC learning environment manages to captivate the sustained interest of students with these cutting-edge approaches which are so relevant to today's youth. As an additional benefit to both students and teachers, lessons are very easily tailored to suit the unique educational requirements of individual students. Conveniently, customized curriculum is available to schools almost immediately.
