Reading Eggs Reaches Over 20 Million Users Globally
One of the ways Reading Eggs helps learners get up to speed quickly and maintain their reading skills is by offering a placement test upfront so they can start learning at the appropriate level and make progress at their own pace.
FREMONT, CA: Reading Eggs, a Blake eLearning program that creates a unique online world where children learn to read, announced that the platform now has over 20 million users worldwide. Over the past year, learners spent more than 43 million hours using the Reading Eggs and Mathseeds programs, which create a level playing field for learners with sequenced lessons that feature interactive animations, fun games, songs, and rewards that keep children engaged and motivated to learn.
"Reading Eggs is a popular worldwide reading and math program," said Katy Pike, Chief Product Officer at Reading Eggs. "Starting last year, demand spiked, and now we have more than 20 million users to date. Just in the past year, learners spent more than 43 million hours using our platforms to learn in a fun, interactive online environment. Kids love playing in the program, and parents are pleased when children are learning instead of playing video games or watching TV."
One of the ways Reading Eggs helps learners get up to speed quickly and maintain their reading skills is by offering a placement test upfront so they can start learning at the appropriate level and make progress at their own pace. In addition, children can access Reading Eggs anywhere, anytime, and if they forget a skill, they can repeat a lesson to refresh. With half of the year remote learning due to COVID-19, Kindergarten students who spent an average of 26 minutes per week using Reading Eggs progressed 1.1 grade levels in a study conducted during the 2019-2020 school year. The songs, animation, and rewards keep children motivated, and so does the success they achieve by learning at the rate that works best for them.
An incredibly powerful learning tool, Reading Eggs is used by many schools, which take advantage of the program's hundreds of lessons and its library containing thousands of online books. Reading Eggs is an excellent supplement for in-class or remote instruction, and the enormous increase in users and hours spent on the program suggests that more parents and teachers are reaching out for programs that promote active learning in the wake of the pandemic.
