EDClass works in partnership with the school and their desired remote education delivery. It works the same for home educated, parents wanting extra work, or for international students with or without teachers, support and tuition being available.

There is also an on-demand virtual library which hosts pre recorded video lessons delivered by our teachers, allowing pupils to access for any extra tuition or to simply view a session taught by someone's completely different pedagogy, which may engage and challenge the pupil further.
