Enchanted Learning

Enchanted Learning® is one of the oldest long-lasting education package providers that are not online. The company started out in 1993, which is pre-history in terms of the internet. This company has been producing educational worksheets for 25 years and continues to supply one of the most comprehensive lists on the internet.

Enchanted learning was founded by Jeananda Col and Mitchell Spector when they decided to solve the problem of computer-accessible educational games and worksheets for their own children. They started out in the days of the CD ROM and created “Busy little brains,” in 1995 they advanced to the internet. The business is a family owned one, and the company expanded its reach in 2014 with extra content and advanced site administration.

The Product

EasyLearning is about simplicity. Creating the most understandable work pages for quick assessment and activity. Since their inception, they have amassed a total of 35,000 pages on their website library and have indexed these by categories and alphabet.

The site might seem an understatement, and the graphics might not seem the most advanced, but the end product is a printable worksheet and online educational sheets for teaching children the basics of just about anything and everything.

The site is free, but if you subscribe, which helps support the continued activity of the site, you will get an ad-free environment and access to more content and printable pages that are exclusive to the site.

The Site

Using a very simple (text standard) GUI, which is great for slow bandwidths, you find the following navigation tabs to choose from:

The top bar holds eight tabs, these are:

  1. Home

The homepage is the landing page, and pressing this will take you to the landing page.

  1. Site Index

On this page, you get all the links to the pages including a complete alphabetical list.

  1. About Us

This is a sparse page of limited information.

  1. Contact Us

This page offers a number of solutions and has a lot of linked pages that help solve a problem.

The site navigation is bad, the site does not maintain an overhead menu bar, and some pages don’t have a menu bar, you either press back on your browser or try to find a link. This can be frustrating, especially for the less computer savvy user. This kind of programming was great back in 1995, but today the sites navigation, as well as look and feel, should be much more advanced.

Now let’s take a look at the category links, by clicking on each category you get to a page filled with links to the work pages and printable games and pictures. There are plenty of work pages explaining how to create fun stuff, which is all very educational and creative at the same time.

Conclusions

This is a must site to enter, their products are amazing, and they have accumulated over 25 years of educational material that is a boon to any home and school. The online picture dictionary is exceptional, and the creativity pages are very well thought out.

My only two criticisms are the navigation and the site interface. The site needs to come up into the 21st Century; it needs a full facelift. The navigation is a part of that GUI, and once they provide such a change, their site will become an exceptional and much more successful option for parents, teachers, and children.
