How does learning online work?

Taking part in an online lesson

Online lessons are always live, so you'll agree a time that suits you in advance with your teacher. Taking part in an online lesson is really simple:

  • There's no need to install any software, joining a lesson is as simple as opening a website in your browser
  • All you need is a headset or microphone, a webcam and an internet connection
  • During the lesson you'll see, hear and speak to your teacher just like in a normal class
  • If you have technical problems or issues with your internet connection, your teacher will call you on the phone to help

Here you can see some screenshots from recent online lessons:

Learning in a 'virtual classroom'

We teach using the browser-based software WizIQ, which combines conventional online video calling with the following learning tools:

  • Interactive whiteboard
    The teacher shows you texts, images and make notes for you in real-time, just as they would in a 'normal' individual lesson.
  • Learning materials
    Your teacher uploads materials before each lesson, which you can view online or download and print out. These materials remain available to you in the content library.
  • Lesson recordings
    Every lesson you take part in is automatically recorded. You can go back and watch or download individual lessons later on.
