BYU Independent Study (BYUI IS) is pleased to offer curriculum for more than 100 free high school and middle school online courses to any U.S.-based school that shuts down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The courses are to be used by the school’s teachers as content during a shutdown to continue the classroom teaching and learning online.

The courses contain subject matter content, assignments, formative and summative assessments and they include all 7th to 12th – grade core subject areas as well as some of our most popular elective courses. They are also completely 100% online so no textbooks are required.


The courses will be available through July 1, 2020 for your use.


BYU Independent Study is proud to partner with Agilix, the developer of the BUZZ LMS platform, in providing our courses with no charge for the learning management system. BYU IS is accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancED) and is currently utilized by thousands of schools and students nationwide in various online applications.

Our courses will work regardless of the learning management system (LMS) used in your schools or districts, as long as it is IMS Global Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) compatible. Your teachers don’t need to know or understand the Buzz LMS.



The course content is put into an export package (IMSCC) and will display in Canvas, Blackboard, Schoology, etc. so your teacher’s grade student’s assignments and exams and work with students in their native LMS just like they normally do.
