Kiddom is a combination planning system and content library. A free teacher account lets you set up unlimited classes and students. You can add assignments from the library of online content from sites such as Khan Academy, TedEd, cK-12 and more. You can also add assignments from other resources or curriculum. Standards (from an extensive provided list, or your own custom-made) can be attached to assignments for tracking progress. A flexible grading system includes an easy rubric tool. This could be an extremely useful tool for both planning and assessing your child's learning.

Classes include SAT, CLEP and AP test prep, along with several other subjects. Debra also publishes several printed planning tools. *A note about religious content: I have never used these materials, so cannot say what sort of religious perspective they contain.

FunCation Academy

This site is a sort of online homeschool co-op with a very reasonable monthly subscription fee. You get access to lots of educational websites and an online planning tool, as well as some live online classes (with extra fees, but also very affordable.) They also offer some assessment tools.

4 Teachers

This is a website with tools for teachers to incorporate technology into learning.  There are tools for creating quizzes and scoring rubrics, several different tools for use in note-taking and writing reasearch papers, and an online planning calendar.  There are also several online math games and something called TrackStar.  This tool allows teachers (or parents) to gather web resources into an online lesson for students to follow.  You can make your own Tracks or use the ones created by others. 

Learning Success Institute

This company offers learning style assessments (available at a huge discount through Homeschool Buyers Co-op) as well as some curriculum materials for writing, spelling, math and financial literacy.  They also have an independent study program.  It's pretty expensive, but could be useful for high school documentation.  It also might help new homeschool who feel insecure about the process.

Homeschool Buyers Co-op

This is a great organization that gets discounts on curriculum and other resources throught group buying power.  Especially good for web-based curriculum, software, and subscription services like Brain Pop or Discovery Education Streaming.  They even have an online planner.  Membership is free.
