Reporting & Analytics

Data analysis drives all organizations and that includes educational institutions. From attendance reports to seeing who hasn't completed certain tasks, reporting is a key feature to ensure student success.

Resources Database

To make materials accessible to everyone we load the resources database. The tutors can then give students access to specific areas so that they only need to worry about their own course & materials.

We all know someone who just doesn't sleep! Maybe when we're all tucked up in bed they want to learn... Well, they can! Hosted through the internet the VLE will be accessible 24hrs a day.

Community Forums

Students don't just learn from tutors, they also learn from other students! Having course forums or common interest forums allows students to share both their knowledge & resources.
