• %Providing quality teaching resources for the 'computer subjects' (CAT and IT) since 1995.
  • We believe that all learners should be comfortable with computers as part of their lives.
  • Content is presented through real-life examples and scenarios, so that learners may identify with the material more easily and make it relevant to their lives / experiences.
  • We provide videos, PowerPoint presentations, solutions to exercises and data files for exercises - all to make life easier for teachers and learners.

Video hero....

Videos. They can help your learners with mastering new content. If you use YouTube they are free and available anywhere. That's the good side of videos. From a teacher's perspective videos do come with a few problems attached to them like limpets:

Number 1: You do have to watch and vet the content of a video before you recommend it to your learners (not all videos out there are accurate or up to date). This can take a lot of time.

Number 2: It is hard to check that learners actually watch the video.

Number 3: Video watching is passive - and we know that learning is more effective when the learner is actually active.

Enter a solution. Edpuzzle is a free web site that allows you to take videos (whether you have created them yourself our sourced them from YouTube) and add in questions - turning the video into a more interactive activity and giving you a way to check how much of the content the learner really understood (and that they watched the video!). You do have to create an account to use the site.

Here's an example you can look at, try and even give to your learners to work with. It covers basic hardware (something CAT and IT teachers should be doing in Grd 10 theory).
