IXL Video Tutorials: Watch and learn from experts!

IXL’s expansive video tutorials library is constantly growing! Access 1,800+ videos for 3rd grade math through Geometry, as well as foundational Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 6th through 8th English language arts skills. 

Created in partnership with expert instructors from Wyzant, the largest tutoring network in the U.S., these bite-sized videos provide detailed strategies for tackling IXL skills.

Many skills on IXL now come with an accompanying video lesson that supports the specific concept covered in the skill. This helps teachers, parents, and students by putting targeted instructional resources right in your hands!

How to access video tutorials

You can access any video from the practice page of its associated skill by clicking the “Watch a tutorial” link near the top of the page.

Video tutorials also include almost all of the Common Core-aligned math skills and many skill-plan-only skills. Videos are available on desktop and mobile-web, but they are not available on the IXL apps at this time.

What to expect from video tutorials

In a typical video, a tutor walks through the concepts covered in the skill and works through several example problems to make sure students understand. The videos feature a number of tutors and different approaches to teaching the concept, which helps students stay engaged by offering a variety of content.

The average length of a video is around five minutes, and they include the option for English closed captions (simply click the CC button at the bottom of the video and select English to turn them on).

More support outside the classroom

Video tutorials give students another educational tool when they’re away from the classroom and working independently, whether they’re learning new skills, reinforcing what they learned in class, or trying to get help when they’re stuck.

They also give parents an easily available resource to help their children at home. If you aren’t familiar with a concept your child is learning, IXL video tutorials can provide guidance on the exact skill your child is working on.

Another opportunity to learn

With these videos, you have another way of using IXL to support different learning styles and needs!  Video tutorials provide engaging bite-sized lessons on each topic, which is particularly helpful for visual and auditory learners. Then, students can dive into IXL skills for active learning and practice. Along the way, they’ll receive real-time feedback and answer explanations to help them learn from their mistakes. With multiple different resources they can turn to, students can learn more effectively and better retain their new knowledge.
