EDClass is a remote learning application designed to help break barriers to learning with online assistance through EDLounge qualified and assisted tutors using the personalised e-learning aspects.
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.
Your 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.

All virtual lessons can be streamed live for teacher / student viewing and are also recorded and automatically backed up and saved to ensure safeguarding all round.
The students would be able to ask for and receive help, feedback, comments, and direction from our support members, ensuring all students can progress within EDLounge.
You and your organisation can see the chat live with the student and teacher.
The video can work chat wise, and can be muted.
The students can follow any path, timed and date stamped for their own learning.
The students click on this button to activate the chat and virtual support whilst learning. Live lessons and tutoring can also occur.
Once clicked it takes them straight into learning. The learning, idle and question time is recorded.
The files are encrypted and sent to the school every evening once learning and the sessions have been completed.
All videos are automatically sent through via your FTP and stored via a folder for safeguarding. Every file is saved, encrypted and sent to the school.
