Training

Free online training
ActiveLearn is simple to use and takes very little time to set up, but free online training is available to help provide you and your colleagues with support and guidance.

Each training session is delivered via Webinar (an online seminar), enabling you to sign in and view the session either from your school or home computers. With each 45-minute session scheduled at the end of the school day, they are a convenient and cost-effective way of enabling the whole department to get up to speed.
