I CAN Learn® Education Systems
JRL Enterprises Inc.

I CAN Learn Education Systems has three products, which together span a traditional grades 4-9 Mathematics curriculum from Arithmetic through Algebra I. "I CAN Learn" stands for Interactive Computer Aided Natural Learning. The programs are divided into 120-180 lessons across 16-20 lessons (depening on the program). Each lesson has 4 parts which appear in sequence; these are:

  1. 1 or 2 Warm-up problems (multiple-choice)
  2. Lesson Presentation (videos w/ user interaction)
  3. Tutorial Problems
  4. Quiz (more test questions)
The warm-up problems are taken from material the student has already learned. The lesson presentation is video-based, with some host or character introducing the relevant math concept. The student clicks through the video at their own pace and in some cases the video will pose a question for them to answer. After the video, the student gets to answer several multiple-choice questions called "Tutorial Problems". There are hints available and more in-depth explanations if the student has trouble. Finally, the student takes a quiz with 10 multiple-choice questions to assess their comprehension. I CAN Learn stores results from the quiz and other user interaction for progress monitoring by teachers later on.

I CAN Learn distinguishes itself from other competitors by introducing new concepts very thoroughly. The videos feature a character in a real-world situation (although often very contrived) such as the cook who introduces ideas of fractions and proportions, or the skateboard shop owner who introduces data and graphing problems. One weakness of the software is that the student interaction relies heavily on answering multiple-choice questions.

Another unique aspect of I CAN Learn is that it encourages students to copy what they are learning in their off-line notebooks (i.e. notebooks made of paper). For example, during a lesson presentation about graphing functions, I CAN Learn tells the student at several points in the video to "copy down the information in [their] notebook" before continuing. Although it is obviously hard for the computer to determine if the student is actually copying down material, for the students who actually do this, it undoubtedly reinforces the content for them in a helpful way.

Instructional Model(s)

Specific details not available from website, but appears to be marketed as supplementary to classroom work

Presentation Style

Video-based lesson presentations (over 400 Lessons). Students choose their own lessons. Each lesson has 4 parts:
  1. Warm-up problems (like test questions)
  2. Lesson Presentation (videos w/ user interaction)
  3. Tutorial Problems
  4. Quiz (more test questions)
Although each lesson includes a video and introduces the concept in significant depth, the opportunity to practice what is learned does not seem as strong. For example, the user interaction is primarily limited to answering multiple choice questions.
