What are people saying
The option Lessonflix has to interact directly with the teachers creating the lessons is the most valuable element of the site, as it gives users direct access to highly qualified teachers from every subject who can help in so many ways from answering simple questions to creating new video content at their request. I think it is an incredible opportunity to have that sort of expertise available at your fingertips!
Lessonflix provides a platform for a teacher to be a personal tutor, wherever and whenever there is a need. I want to share my experience of theatre with students who may not be able to see set play texts live on stage. I can see it becoming a valued and enriching resource for children, young people, undergraduates, and trainee teachers – as well as proactive, self-reflective professional practitioners.
Lessonflix puts the power in the hands of the learner, who can use it in whichever way suits them best to drive their own education. Anyone can learn anything given the desire, confidence and opportunity. Other teachers have the opportunity to watch others at work. and pick up different points of view that they had never considered, at any time and in any place that may suit them.
I believe Lessonflix will be a great resource for all kinds of schools as well as parents, carers, and other forms of education providers. I was particularly drawn to the fact that the content will be advert-free, safe and suitable for young people. I know that sometimes there is a staff or pupil absence and a single lesson or a series of lessons are needed. I recommend that everyone, whatever their age, should have a go!
"We have been an eclectic, interest-led HomeEd family since our journey started but now our oldest is approaching GCSE age and has a couple science careers in mind. We started looking for something that would provide her with a bit more structure, some GCSE preparation and somewhat of a lecture / classroom feel. We tried a few other platforms but they were either not a good fit, too simple or too expensive for our diverse family. We decided to give Lessonflix a try because the price was affordable and at first glance, the platform looked pleasant and straightforward. I was beyond pleased to discover that it is completely pleasant and straightforward but also packed with great lessons. Our oldest prefers to watch her videos on the iPad with headphones while I prefer to browse and plan using the desktop login. I was not sure how she would transition to the ‘lecture’ feel but the lessons are engaging and entertaining and she remembers the material easily. As the parent, the Lessonflix tracker is also quite helpful in navigating the lessons she needs to prepare for the GCSEs she wants to sit. We are very excited to be part of the Lessonflix community and watch it grow. Lessons seem to be added on a regular basis and I imagine the selection will become quite comprehensive."
