SchoolOnline was developed to provide the benefits of private tuition to children of all income levels by using video-based tuition to scale access.
Our KS2 Maths tutorial videos each focus on a single past paper question, explaining in step-by-step detail how to work through a problem and ensuring the student achieves maximum marks. Our tutors highlight key steps not to miss out on students working out, and also note common misconceptions and easy mistakes made by students in the past.
Students using the SchoolOnline platform independently at home can work through our content in a self-guided fashion or follow our guided 10-week courses. For these independent students, the Maths platform is particularly effective where the teacher went too quickly in class, or where the class had moved on while the student was still struggling to process the lesson.
Feedback from our KS2 students consistently highlights how easily they can follow the bite-size tutorials “in their own time”, slowly, rewinding and rewatching if necessary. Students who know what they need help with can work through all of our video content independently, working through topics or searching for specific questions using our detailed search catalogue which has questions tagged by topic, sub-topic, year and difficulty/grade level.
Here at SchoolOnline, our approach is to integrate reading and writing. In other words, we treat reading and writing as one activity approached from another perspective, i.e. the reader processes ideas that the writer has produced, and these roles are interchangeable. Consequently, the core of our platform is expertly curated reading and writing tutorial videos and online support materials which aid students in honing the crucial skills they need for KS2 SATs, in-class assessments and in the progression to secondary school.
Our interactive, reinforcement quizzes promote the mastery of this knowledge and ingraining information learnt in the videos into the student’s long term memory. Additional activities (such as crosswords, word searches and close exercises) and a comprehensive glossary section also make up the KS2 English section, designed to support further and deeper learning.
The success of our English platform has been evidenced by our Spring 2021 pilot scheme with Charlton Athletic Community Trust. Here we worked with 30 KS2 students over six weeks, setting them just 30 minutes a week per subject on SchoolOnline. They took assessments before starting the pilot and after the completion of 6 weeks. On average, they improved their English scores by 100.5%.
SchoolOnline provides top quality, digital exam revision in English and Maths through our innovative EdTech platform, which harnesses the benefits of digital distribution to scale access to some of the UK’s top examiners and tutors. In a market where 25% of children receive private tuition to achieve their optimal results at KS2 and GCSE, we set out to level the playing field by developing a solution for the remaining 75% of children that would allow them to access all the benefits that private tuition brings to exam outcomes.
A library of bite-sized tutorials created by the UK’s leading, most experienced examiners provides the backbone of our software. Every single video is produced and animated by an experienced film production team to optimise engagement with children at both GCSE and KS2 levels providing concise, highly targeted tuition. We are delighted to be recognized by the extremely prestigious Bett Awards for the role we are playing in providing top quality education for children from all walks of life.
