Is there a class size limit

We prefer to have smaller class sizes so that each student gets a higher level of tuition. This is a flexible factor, however, depending on each institution’s needs. Our team can discuss this with you before formal enrolment.

When is the course start date

We tailor the start date of the course to your needs. Our courses last on average 9 months, with the start date entirely up to you.

For businesses and educators, we understand that consistency is key, and that you do not want to be paying for a course your employees or students are not progressing in or attending.

How does the Virtual Classroom work?

It is very similar to a regular classroom it is just over the internet. A group of students and a teacher in a class, with the teacher leading the lesson and students participating. Students can raise their hand for help, interact with their peers, view the teacher’s whiteboard, be put into small discussion groups and more.  Students can voice their opinions and interact with the teacher and other students directly. Classes will be at a set time, and each student must attend.

Will learners have the same teacher throughout?

At EdifyEllo, we employ a number of teachers, who are each assigned to their own class of learners, just as in a traditional school. This allows the teacher and students to build a rapport and makes it easier for the teacher to tailor lessons to each class.

Will it be individual or group work in lessons?

EdifyEllo lessons emulate a traditional classroom environment. Therefore, lessons will be a mix of individual and group work, and additional tasks may be set that are again, both individual or group focused.
If you would like your enrolled staff or students to have a stronger focus on either group or individual work, we can work with our teachers to make sure this is accommodated.
In a virtual classroom, learners will communicate with each other, but the majority of the work you actually do you will complete by yourself. This does not mean you cannot work with other students but just will most likely not be put in groups. However, you may have to discuss with certain people if asked to by your teacher.

What if a learner misses a lesson?

If a class is missed, all the resources and notes will be sent to the learner by the teacher. Classes are recorded so students can rewatch to study, or in this case, catch up with missed content.

What resources are available?

As with a traditional school/training environment, there will be a variety of resources for learners to use. This ranges from worksheets, information booklet, online videos and book. The exact resources will differ from class to class, teacher to teacher. All resources are made availed to download for offline use within the Virtual Classroom.
Our sister company, EdifyWorld, offers a range of free video resources to improve English and build relevant skills. All EdifyWorld resources are free to use.
