Our students have free access to GCSEPod's library of over 6,000 Pods, which are 3-5 minute videos packed with course content. In addition to these Pods, there is a host of Student Learning Activities which are designed to help students commit content to their long-term memory.  It makes revision and learning more manageable, aimed to deliver knowledge in short bursts.  

The Check & Challenge tool provides quizzes for your child to test their knowledge on. Check & Challenge provides scaffolded support through hints, multiple choice options and feedback statements to help consolidate learning and build students’ confidence.

You can download Pods to any mobile device, allowing you create playlists which you can watch at anytime!
