Online Learning Platforms

Remote learning and online education environments are used by schools to communicate and collaborate with staff and students. Popular platforms like Microsoft Office 365 for Education and Google Apps Suite for Education are used to communicate, monitor progress, organise and plan lessons. Using the many available tools with each platform schools can also create content, share documents, record lessons and even use the live-video conferencing features to broadcast lessons.

As well as allowing teachers to send out homework, assessments and online activities, they also provide a means to track pupil progress and can be linked to your MIS database so all your data is current and accessed easily.
