What is Classoos?

Classoos is a digital textbook and learning resource platform, accessible on and offline on desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile.

Classoos was created by technology experts who, as parents, had a vision of bringing childrens’ learning in line with the modern digital world: Making learning resources familiar, accessible and relatable to pupils.

Classoos can seamlessly integrate with a school's MIS and provides textbooks from the UK’s major publishers including; Hodder, Bloomsbury, Collins, Pearson, Cambridge, Oxford, Colourpoint Educational, PG Online and others, covering KS2- KS5, GCSE, IGCSE, A-Level and BTEC for all the major exam boards; AQA, OCR, Edexcel, Cambridge, CCEA SQA and WJEC.

Users access their library of etextbooks via one login on their devices, lessening the amount to carry and ensuring books are always available and never forgotten. Pages can be bookmarked and highlighted, links and resources added and notes made to enhance learning. Teachers are able to upload and share resources with their students and departments, making teaching and learning more streamlined and eliminating the need for endless photocopying.

Additional functionality would be better, such as interactive quizzes at the end of a chapter

Sorina found Classoos:
  • Not reduces teacher workload
    Doesn't impact at all on teacher workload. It is a useful tool for students who don't have to bring their textbooks to every lesson
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    If they use the textbook as a supplementary resource to those given in lessons. That's an IF

Excellent communication from the team at Classoos and they have been very accomodating over the past two years.

Anna Dickson found Classoos:
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    We use online A-Level textbooks for flipped learning tasks regularly and students acess the material independently to consolidate learning done in lessons
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    The ease and speed with which the books are available mean no time wasted photocopying pages or frustration at students forgetting to bring books in from home!

Peter Astbury

IT Director

Transylvania College, Romania

Used Classoos for 7–12 months

May 2021

It adds additional functionality to the traditional textbook while removing the need to physically carry heavy books around. For ten stars I'd also want to be able to integrate it into our learning environment and embed specific pages.

Peter Astbury found Classoos:
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    Not really but I'm confident that it would if we were making more extensive use of it. As it is we have 2 teachers using it for their own access to textbooks but no students are using it yet that I'm aware of. If we were making more use of it with students then I'm sure the features allowing for sharing of notes would be helpful.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Being able to search a book for the content you need without having to manually find it is a big time saver.

Emma Davis

Head of Physical Education

Used Classoos for 7–12 months

May 2021

It has been so helpful and easy to set tasks for pupils to work online with classoos. We have cut down on the amount of textbooks we are purchasing and it is so easy for pupils to revise and work outside the classroom.

Emma Davis found Classoos:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    It has been vital during online teaching and Remote Learning. The fact that all pupils have had access to the textbook online - either on their iPad, laptop or phone has been extremely helpful.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    It has been great not having to remind pupils to bring textbooks to lessons - and the pupils have enjoyed not having to carry the around!
