The new EDClass platform offers interactive teaching through secure video conferencing, screen sharing and scenario based learning tasks that are within timetabled, live or on-demand sessions whether it is our teachers or your establishment.
EDClass works in partnership with your school and your preferred remote education delivery. It works the same for students educated at home, parents wanting extra work or for international students with or without teachers with support and tuition available. The EDClass team of experienced teachers, support workers, wellbeing officers and tutors use the innovative remote education classroom to deliver face to face, live, timetabled or on-demand sessions for a range of abilities in a secure, safeguarded and virtual learning platform. Any individual can access these any time they are scheduled or when timetabled.
School teachers and staff can use the same virtual platform to deliver their own sessions in exactly the same way for as many pupils as they wish. There is also an on-demand virtual library which hosts pre-recorded video lessons delivered by our teachers. This allows pupils to access any extra tuition or to simply view a session taught by someone's completely different pedagogy, which may engage and challenge the pupil further.
