Homeschool Planet is completely online which allows you to access it wherever you can be online. When you initially login into Homeschool Planet you may choose between calendar or planner view. The calendar shows what is planned for the day & also allows you to mark when you have completed an assignment. It gives a more basic overview of what you are planning to achieve.
The planner view is where you are able to add, delete & edit assignments, chores, appointments, holidays, birthdays etc. You also have the ability to mark off when these are completed here as well. I choose to primarily use the planner view as I am often adding & editing assignments. Homeschool Planet has made it very simple to add assignments into your planner. There is no laborious task, but rather a few simple clicks & you can type in what you wish your student to achieve. Assignments can include websites links, resources, any specific notes for the student & as much information as you would like to include. It also allows you to track the hours spent on the assignment & even grade it.
If you require your student to complete the same assignment daily (eg. I require our younger children to do a column of their Maths Mentals book each day), then you can simply choose to add that assignment to be repeated for each day during a period of time that you allocate.
My original reason for purchasing Homeschool Planet was because I could easily print lists for my children from my own plan. Every week I spend a couple of hours planning out our next week's work (including additional appointments that we may have) & then printing out assignment lists for my children. The lists are very editable & you may choose to include as much or as little as you want on the lists. Printing is simple & the lists have a check box for the children to tick when they have completed their assignment. You are also able to print out Class Notes, Grade Reports, Class Hours & Transcripts for your student. Alternatively students may be given a login of their own to access their list.
