Virtual Classroom

EDLounge launched EDVirtual (Our Virtual Classroom) in 2016 so that students and schools involved with EDLounge will have the internal capacity to benefit from this Virtual Classroom approach and support mechanism for reaching a range of students within and outside of school.EDVirtual has been created so that your establishments can target those hard to reach students, using your own staff, mentors and support staff (alongside EDLounge teaching staff) to educate learners in any situation. Our new virtual classrooms can help schools and centre’s educate students who have difficulty attending a mainstream provision.

We provide a safe and secure learning environment for hard to reach students allowing them to achieve whilst offering educators our online platform and safeguarding tools. This will ensure each student reaches their full potential in a controlled and safe environment. Within our virtual classrooms, your staff, alongside EDLounge staff have the capability to educate your students on specific timetabled pathways via live video stream that is all recorded to safeguard your teachers, your school staff and your students.  Learners follow a unique pathway for them and achieve support when they require it.

This facility will enable us and yourself to further support students and the needs of those involved with these individuals in furthering their education. The difference between this and our normal support is that there is more supervision used for the students learning off-site.

The Virtual Classroom enables you to :

  • view the students learning live via a secure server stream,
  • chat face to face,
  • view their learning progress,  
  • view actual live answers
  • mentor students via a secure verbal chat or written chat
  • set a structured pathway for any individual

This approch can dramatically improve your students’ attendance and achievement.
