This will depend on the age of your student and their own learning style. Older students and self-learners will need very minimal parent involvement. For those considering online learning for younger students, especially those who are not yet able to read, parent involvement will be significantly higher. Students may need help entering passwords, navigating pages, or reading instructions.
