It's Regents test time once again, and when it comes time for studying, students have another option - Regents Review 2.0 On Demand.
"It further leverages everything we believe in. For years we've been offering the Regents episodes and this year, all 13 episodes on demand statewide," said Jennifer Holick from Time Warner Cable.
Made possible through a partnership with YNN parent company Time Warner Cable, the association of public broadcasters and the New York Network, Regents review comes right into students, and parents home at no additional charge. Daily lesson plans can be reviewed anytime
"And it gives them the opportunity to pause, rewind, stop, start, revisit it when it's most convenient for them," said Holick.
In all there are 13 topics from English to Earth Science, and Geometry to Geography. Each episode also features instruction by a New York State Certified State Teacher.
"In fact, some of our students in our area will probably recognize them as teachers from their own classroom," said Holick.
Speaking of students, what do they have to say about this free on-demand service?
"If they don't follow necessarily along with the class then this is a tool they can use anytime whatsoever," said Max Drabkin.
"Even if they haven't learned or they haven't understood quite like the books they've read throughout the year, this teacher can provide them with analysis and breakdown the books for them," said Albany High School student David Stempsey.
"So there's a little insight and content information on the Regents Review On Demand, but you're probably also wondering, what about access? Well, it's simple. For example, here in Albany, it's channel 1007; in Buffalo, it's channel 997; in Central New York, it's 1000; in Rochester, it's 111; and in the Hudson Valley, starting May 30th, it's channel 1111.
"All of those title will remain free on demand through January, because there are some students who don't just take the exams in June, there's a whole group of students who take them later in the year," said Farkus.
From the classroom to the living room.
