EDVirtual - Virtual School & Classroom
What is EDVirtual?
While EDClass is the virtual classroom we control, EDVirtual is the virtual classroom you control using everything we do but for your students across your schools, local Authority or MAT.
We have introduced a facility where your staff, your mentors and your tutors can work with your learners using our online platform, lessons, content and our Virtual Classrooms to create your own trust wide or local authority wide Virtual School. This is a perfect resource for students who are school refusers, demotivated, vulnerable, school phobic, long-term sick, distance learners and students who are struggling with mental health issues. Your learners will benefit from being taught by your teachers and support HLTAs - whom they know and trust - in our Virtual Classroom, using our online platform.
You can personalise and tailor their learning to their specific needs and capabilities. Our unique safeguarding tools have been developed with these students in mind, to give educators the best opportunity to deliver lessons to off-site 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 your establishment to ensure safeguarding all round.
