What is EDVirtual?
While EDClass is the virtual classrom we control, EDVirtual is the virtual classroom you control.
EDVirtual enables your staff, support workers and well-being officers to:
- teach students live via a secure and safeguarded stream
- chat face-to-face, and have a visual of your students
- view students' progress and offer mentoring, support and assistance
- view live answers
- mentor students via a secure teleconferencing chat or written chat facility
- set structured, timetabled learning pathways
We have introduced a facility where school staff, mentors and tutors can work with students using our online lessons, content and virtual classrooms. This is a perfect resource for students who have missed any period of education.
It can help particular groups such as those who are; school refusers, shielding, demotivated, vulnerable, school-phobic, long-term sick or distance learners as well as students that struggle with anxiety and mental health issues.
Students will benefit from sessions conducted by your teachers – who they know, trust and are familiar with – in our virtual classroom. Each programme of learning can be tailored to each individual student’s needs and capabilities.
Our unique safeguarding tools have been developed with off-site students in mind, to give educators the best opportunity to deliver lessons to students whilst monitoring their behaviour and safety.
All virtual lessons can be streamed live for teacher viewing and are also recorded, automatically backed up and exported daily to the school ensuring safeguarding.
EDVirtual complies with government legislation for both on- and off-site provisions for academies and schools.
