Revise is an after-school program based in Ireland. Their study centres provide supervised study, grinds, and intensive revision courses to all secondary-level students for both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert Exams. The courses cover various subjects including maths, chemistry, languages, business, and many more. These extra classes help students become comfortable and improve academic performance.
What prompted a change in their education model
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Revise conducted classes by inviting students to a facility in Kilkenny county, where teaching and learning happened in a physical classroom. Once the country went into a lock down, Revise had to rethink their education model. They also had a long term vision to continue offering lessons to students, no matter where they're located. However, they did not want to tape their classes as tapes offer just one-way interaction—Revise believes in engaging with the students live. This paved the way to explore the virtual classroom model.
How Revise built a digital campus
While Revise began exploring options to conduct classes online, they found ShowTime was an apt remote teaching tool for their needs.
Carl Lynch said.
Recreating a physical classroom
Once you move your teaching to a virtual environment, the first priority for the teacher is the compromise on student interaction. Teachers at Revise had similar doubts but the interactive features proved beneficial here.
Why students love learning via ShowTime
Students attending the Revise's courses had to adjust to virtual learning, but did so quickly with little help and found it very easy to join classes on ShowTime.
After those motivating words from Carl, we have nothing more to add.
