Links for FREE Online Instructional Materials

NOTE: YOU CANNOT TAKE THE GED OR ANY HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY TEST ONLINE!!! These websites are FREE sites to take practice tests, study for the GED test, learn English, get a better job, and reach other goals that you have.

If these sites say you are ready to take the GED test, then click on this link & enter your zip code to find where you can take the GED test in person.  Visit for more official information about the GED Test.  You may have to pay a SMALL fee or pass a practice test in person to take the GED test for free, depending on the state you live in.  ONLY PAY AN OFFICIAL GED TESTING CENTER to take the GED tests… and you can never take it online!!!

Most of these sites require that you download a plug-in player to view videos.  You may also want to use headphones.  Also, sometimes you need to register with your email or create a username & password.  NEVER give out your password or pay money for these sites. Some websites link to workbooks that you can purchase & work on at home or with a tutor.

Interactive online tools that GED, ESOL (or any) teachers can use in the classroom to communicate with students, create projects, and much more:

  1. BLOG.  Create one using or
  2. Intel Thinking Tools.  They really work your brain hard, for both teachers & students.  Build the 21st Century skills employers & colleges are looking for!  Free professional development, too.
  3. Google for Educators.  I enjoy teaching students how to use Gmail & calendar so that they can communicate & keep track of their schedules.  Great for job searching!  In Docs, students can type up & save essays, make graphs & charts, presentations, and forms.   Google also offers K-12 teacher trainings.
  4. Kind of like YouTube, but without the inappropriate junk.  Won’t be blocked by your computer lab filters!  Find not only videos, but also audio, documents, and other source material that connect to students’ interests & goals.
