Most students now use online help for homework

THE vast majority of primary and high school students are using online learning to help with homework, a new survey shows.

Commissioned by NBN Co, the survey of about 1000 students showed 75% of them were using the internet to learn school coursework at home.

It also showed 51% used online videos to help research subjects they were studying.

While many remote students still struggled with internet connection, more than 60% of those surveyed said online learning had helped level the playing field between different locations.
