Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
StraighterLine (StraighterLine.com) announced today the release of a new online education feature available to students of all ages for free. The new online mathematics video series, Simply StraighterLine Video Tutorials, is available on YouTube whenever anyone needs a little help answering math questions. Each short video features a simple explanation and step-by-step analysis of how to solve many college algebra math problems.
New videos will be added weekly covering topics from the StraighterLine online math curriculum. StraighterLine students, students enrolled at our many partner colleges and universities, or even the general public can sign up for updates as new videos are added by subscribing to the StraighterLine YouTube channel.
“Starting our Simply StraighterLine Video Tutorials with our Math curriculum was an easy first step.” says Josef Katz, VP Marketing of StraighterLine. “College Algebra is a requirement at most colleges and universities. The material in these courses lends itself easily to a video format and matches the format of our overall self-paced courses.

We welcome non-StraighterLine students to learn from this resource and to become more familiar with our approach to distance learning courses.”
