Recommended Usage

Each learner is different though we would recommend, dependant on the reason for using the platform, that around an hours learning per subject, preferably per day is suitable and will demonstrate impact. Though it is important to note that this is very much dependant on the needs of the learner, this is why we provide flexibilty in our approach.

We recommend Britannica School replaces general internet searches within your school. Through daily use and interaction, students will be better equipped to research independently and become more knowledgable about the subjects they are studying.

Most Helpful Reviews

EDClass

Emma: Im sure it could be used better than we use it but i believe that 7 is a fair score for how we use it
Steve: Effective in terms of providing education to those not accessing mainstream school
Steve: Students find the lessons too repetitive, the service is only good for 1 or 2 weeks maximum, if student bother to log in at all. Edclass do not care if a student is not logged on, all the reasonability is on the school. The administrative back end of service is terribly designed and awful to use. The whole service requires a complete redesign.
