Time4Learning Review from an NZ perspective

The following e-mail was sent to Barbara at Hefnet:

I run an online homeschooling service in the US and, having been largely schooled in the UK, am very aware of how different the educational systems are. I’m wondering if my system,, might be of interest to your community or not. We have a few hundred users from New Zealand, Australia, UK, and South Africa and many of them are not just American expatriates. If you or any of your members are interested, I could provide a free membership to our service for people to try it. All I ask is that they provide an opinion of whether, or in what ways, the materials might be useful to homeschoolers in New Zealand. Ideally, they would find that there are ways or situations where it’s useful and so, you might share the review with your membership. Would you know anyone interested in trying it on that basis? If you wanted to post this somewhere to find volunteers, I could provide several (lets say up 4) family memberships for two months each so long as each family agrees to write a short review of their experiences.
