Encounter Edu is designed to be as flexible as possible. Teachers and parents may want to use just a single video or lesson. However, it has more impact when the different sections are integrated. For instance, teach a lesson, view a 360-degree gallery, take part in a live broadcast and then review.

Laptop, tablet or mobile device

 

Encounter Edu

Encounter Edu requires a device with good internet connection. The website is responsive, so all sections can be viewed on a mobile, tablet or laptop and projected in a classroom. It may be easier to view downloaded resources on a tablet or laptop device. To use 360-degree media, classes can choose options from using projector and white board, tablets or smartphones and virtual reality viewers. For live lessons, teachers will need to display the live video and have access to Zoom or YouTube depending on the lesson they are joining.

 
Training

ASSISTments

We recommend setting up a 1:1 demo, reviewing our tutorials, and exploring our help center. We also offer workshops and webinars (which will be posted on our website).

 

Encounter Edu

There is a wide-range of support articles in the professional development section, including advice on using the site during any period of school closure, which is also aimed at parents. The teacher resources are designed for use by novice and expert teachers alike and a number of resources have been adapted for ‘at home’ use. Live chat and email support is also offered for any further questions.
