Most Helpful Reviews

60 Second Histories

Carol Stobbs, Head of EBACC: I love the format, the online classrooms where I can set specific videos for classes. The support from Julie and Kevin and the resources give it the extra dimension. They are always happy to help.
Nigel Siddall, Director of Humanities: A brilliant service - both informative and dramatic. An excellent complement to any history teaching
Lyndon McErlaine, Head of History: I find the range of characters to be vast, and I can always find an example for what I am teaching about. My students respond well to Kevin’s style of delivery. It provides a genuine spark.

Educake

Kevin, Head of Science: Extremely user-friendly for both staff and students, a powerful tool for monitoring student engagement and progress, fantastic customer support and a clear ethos of trying to improve their offer constantly meaning I feel I get value for money
Emma Robertson, Science Coordinator: Educake is a fantastic platform for students to apply their knowledge and understanding. By doing quizzes, they can increase their confidence in key ideas and gain feedback instantly. Students being able to view study guides and set themselves quizzes adds to the benefits. The variety of questions and easy to use platform significantly reduce teacher workload for homework. Being able to view data for your class allows you to adapt your lessons to include key ideas students struggle with. You can also easily view your mark sheet meaning you do not need to keep a separate spreadsheet of who has completed homework and who hasn't. The new app and teacher platform updates mean that more students can access the quizzes and that staff can keep their screens tidy, allowing easy access to previously set quizzes.
Will, Head of Science: It is costly - our own school struggles for this budget and I am not sure I'll be able to renew next year even though I'd love to. There are a few additional features I would recommend that I think would be (fairly) easy enough to build into the website that would give additional avenues.
