‘Netflix’-like education platform launches in UK schools

The platform, Education Demand, brings video content and digital learning tools to schools across the country

Education software provider, The Access Group, has released a video streaming platform called Education Demand throughout schools in the UK – a platform it described as ‘Netflix’-like.

Education Demand users benefit from access to GCSEPod, a learning and revision tool that’s proven to help users achieve one grade higher on average than non-users. Covering 28 GCSE/ IGCSE subjects, the GCSEPod content and assessments are accessible both in the classroom and at home, providing learners with more flexibility when it comes to managing revision.

The GCSE Resits bundle for Maths and English Language offers access to 12 modules per subject, with each of these modules containing 3-5 lessons covering key elements of the topic. These lessons are delivered using a mixture of video, assessment, and workbook-based tasks.

The video content and assessments available via the platform have been developed to engage learners, improve confidence, and accelerate progress.

Commenting on the launch Simon Baines, managing director at Access Education said: “Education Demand has been designed to bring together three key elements – content, assessments and data and we’re hugely excited to be launching the product to schools across the UK.

“We know the past few years have been incredibly challenging for schools and our software has proven to reduce teacher workload, easily integrating with SSO, Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom, enabling teachers to focus on the job in hand – teaching.”

Schools using Education Demand can also access detailed reporting, hopefully allowing teachers to pin-point knowledge gaps and identify areas of low confidence.
