Remote Learning (EDClass)

EDClass offers academy students live tutorial support and distance learning provision through a robust, safeguarded and supervised online platform. Not only does EDClass comply with government legislation for both on- and off- site alternative provisions for academies, this unique platform also gives you the tools to improve attendance in your setting.

EDClass allows you to monitor and track the progress of your excluded children safely and securely online and help positively impact their learning and attendance.
Our experienced team can offer you and your establishment live online support for students who are in inclusion or have been excluded.
EDClass and EDClass + can dramatically improve your attendance and behaviour figures and reduce your isolation and exclusion statistics.

Our e-learning portfolio has grown so fast that there are now over 7,000 resources and lessons that can be used to educate students in alternative provisions. The creation of personalised and tailored pathways for individual students ensures that they remain in education. Following this structured pathway enables a student to learn, progress and succeed whilst simultaneously supporting you to defuse any situation or problem that occurs.


EDClass was designed in 2014 with the help of Rodillian Multi Academy Trusts and is now used in over 50 schools throughout the UK. It is an online learning platform that combines a bank of over 7000 lessons with EDClass teachers supporting your students in an e-learning environment. Our unique safeguarding tools have been developed with students learning off-site in mind to ensure student safeguarding is paramount and the best that is available in an online learning environment. EDClass also has the facility to track off-site students meaning your facility can maintain constant contact with your off-site students. Our tutors are available to help your student at the click of a button. Our tutors will help guide your pupils through their pathways that have been individually allocated for them taking into account their current learning ability. The work your students have completed will also be marked by EDLounge teachers.


EDClass + was developed again with the Senior Leaders, Head Governor and CEO of the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust to educate all those students that were not attending the 6 schools within their trust within specific times and periods of the day.  Their staff and our staff work with their students to give them support and assistance online whilst following a personalised learning pathway. Their target was simple: Educate all within their trust through an application regardless of barriers.

EDClass+ is a combination of EDClass and EDVirtual (Your staff using our Virtual Classroom platform). Within EDClass + our qualified teachers work with your teachers, using our online platform and our virtual classrooms to educate the students at your provision. EDClass+ can give education providers the option of using EDClass+ to combat staff timetable clashes and staff absences.  Your facility can benefit from our qualified online staff concentrating on educating your short term off-site students, leaving your staff free to educate your longer term students, such as pupils that suffer with mental health problems. Students will benefit from qualified and experienced teachers using our tailor made learning pathways to give your students the best learning opportunities that are available in a virtual learning environment. 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 and automatically backed up and saved to ensure safeguarding all round. 

How EDClass works

Our online tutors and supervisors are uniquely trained to have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the EDLounge lessons, system, qualifications, methodology, exams, coursework and practical elements.

By putting into place an exclusive pre-assessment, assessment and feedback service, students are able to progress and understand what is being taught and what they are being asked to do.

Once a partner, we also match your assessment policies to our system so everyone adheres to the same policies, procedures, rewards and sanctions.

To help students gain qualifications, a range of practice, live and mock exams have been added to EDLounge so that students are able to prepare themselves for the new next generation BTEC courses.

Students also receive live and online support from our teachers in any of the qualification subjects.

Our tutors provide support for students in exclusion, home education, isolation or in inclusion whilst they are on-site or off-site. Students are able to ask for and receive help, feedback, comments and direction from our support officers, meaning that all students can progress through EDLounge.

All our support officers are uniquely trained to have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the EDLounge system, including lessons, qualifications, methodology, exams, coursework, and practical elements, enabling the student to continually learn and progress.

Our expert support officers have an extensive knowledge of the qualifications we offer and put into place an exclusive pre-assessment, assessment and feedback service for the students alongside safe supervision.To help with the qualifications, a range of practice, live and mock exams are available for the students to prepare themselves for their BTEC courses. We cater for every aspect of the next generation BTEC courses and we offer a comprehensive support mechanism for the students undertaking these.
