Connections Testimonial

“Connections is a truly student-centered and interactive program. My students and I loved how it engaged them directly, allowing for hands-on exploration and real-time learning experiences. The interactive elements brought the material to life and kept my students actively involved in the lessons. The flexibility of the platform allowed us to delve deeper into topics and cater to different learning styles.”

Integration with Your LMS

Connections integrates with every major Learning Management System (LMS), saving teachers time with automated rostering and one-click grade passback, while streamlining student access with single sign-on.

Take a Tour

Connections engages students in the exploration of real-world phenomena by enabling them to observe and interact with bulk properties and their atomic-level causes. Through the combination of digital content, simulations, and hands-on investigation, students develop evidence-based explanations of phenomena and draw connections to their own lives.

Accessible. Relevant. Inclusive.

Each Connections lesson is built upon the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), aimed at ensuring that all students can access and participate in a meaningful way. Lessons are designed by the Vernier team and then reviewed by the Lesson Advisory Board (LAB), a group of seasoned educators with expertise in creating culturally inclusive learning experiences. The Connections LAB works with our Vernier team to identify opportunities to improve relevancy and inclusivity within each lesson.
