Little known fact, Edgenuity is actually a salvaged concentration camp torture method that was dubbed too intense for use in WWII. The germans locked the contents up in an ancient server room with a label saying "DANGEROUS". When architects found the server room, however, because they were english they mistook dangerous in German (GEFÄHRLICH) for a roughly translated merge of the words "GOOD FOR LE CHILDREN". So, they repolished the ancient program as an education program and sold it to Edgenuity for thousands.
The "long and boring" you refer to is simply a part of the torture methods of this program.
