Does anyone know of any online curriculum that is strictly online? Not one that you print pages from online, but one where the text books, tests, worksheets, etc are all tracked and recorded on the computer? Because of my eco-friendly nature, I'd love to have something that doesn't waste tons of paper and we'd considered finding cheap netbooks or possibly even an iPad for the kids to use instead of conventional methods of schooling. So, do you know of anything like this?

I think Homeschool, Afterschool, Summer Study - Time4Learning is like this and switched on schoolhouse is almost all computer based too but it isn't online it is cd's.

Thanks! I love that first one and Switched on Schoolhouse would be great too, but my youngest will be in first next year and it's only 3rd and up. I appreciate you answering!

I don't know anything about this one: eLearningK12

I know this has printable worksheets, but I don't *think* you have to print anything to use the curriculum...not sure: An Exciting New Way to Homeschool!

Do you care if it's a complete curriculum or a pieced together one? There are lots of places to get online learning for individual subjects, but not very many for complete curricula until you hit 6th grade.

I have several free science sites by sub-subject, too (body, animals, space, etc.).

There is an app for the iPad that allows you to "write" onto PDFs and save them enabling you to utilize PDF curriculum without having to print it. I think it's called Notability. Several math curricula can be bought in PDF format including Math Mammoth, MEP (Free), and Miquon. Just a thought!

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions! I've looked into them all. I appreciate you all taking time to gather these links for me, it was very thoughtful. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I've been terribly busy lately. My son had his tonsils out on Feb. 2 and his recovery has been slow and painful. Add to that that I'm now keeping my 2 month old niece, who is keeping me on my toes! Our homeschooling has been slow and scarce. I'm hoping to get back on track this week.

I LOVE this one! I actually spoke to them today and think we'll end up using them next year, mixed with a few other outside things. I think this place is amazing and will work perfectly for my boys. Thanks!!
