How versatile are the classroom presentations?
The presentations are extremely versatile and can be given to a wide variety of audiences. A quick look at our clientele list shows the great variety: from young professionals at Machon Yaakov who are beginning to learn about Judaism, to Yeshivas Mir students in Jerusalem, to a lunch-and-learn at HM Treasury.
This flexibility is made possible by the fact that the teacher versions of our material have very little text on the screen and are mostly graphics. This allows each teacher to give over the content using language most appropriate to his or her audience. You can see for yourself how teachers are raving about it here.
Do you provide training for teachers?
Torah Live provides a number of training programs for educators both in-person and live online via Skype. We offer a 30 minute free orientation program and 4 and 6 hour paid training programs. The training programs go more deeply into both how to facilitate the platform in the classroom and reviewing through the teacher presentations. Watch the feedback from the United Synagogue Rabbis Torah Live training session here and feedback from Rabbi Roth’s training session at the AJOP conference here.

For what grades is Torah Live appropriate?
How much time does it take to setup a Torah Live presentation in the classroom?
Torah Live has no intention of becoming a burden on the school or the teachers. In our intro to the multi-media presentations, we suggest what tech tools are needed to setup a presentation without wasting time. Whenever a school launches a Torah Live program, we always provide a one time training session and show the teachers how to present it as efficiently as possible.
Is Torah Live content compatible with Smart Boards/Ipads?
How can Torah Live be used in an existing curriculum?
Our goal is not to replace an existing curriculum but to enhance what already exists. The Torah Live platform reduces preparation time by providing the teacher with a variety of materials that they can use in the classroom.
However, if the school or a teacher is in need of a curriculum. we can provide that as well. To see how Torah Live can be used throughout the school year click here.
I’m a teacher. Can I pay for a home user membership, if I just want to show the videos to my class and not use any of the supplementary teacher material?
Since you are using Torah Live in a public setting, we require you to register for the teacher membership. The $5 membership level is for home-use only.
