In recent months online learning has been firmly brought to the forefront of most educator’s minds. When correctly implemented, remote learning creates opportunities for effective teaching and collaboration outside of the classroom. And in recent times, a school’s provision for distance learning has never been more important. Rapid uptake and steep learning curves have ensued by pupils, parents, and teachers alike. Through this time of crisis, many educators have seen the challenges, successes, value, and skill involved in delivering quality education virtually.

There is no 'one size fits all' solution for implementing remote learning in your school. Each setting will have slightly different requirements and opt for a different technology to reach their goals.
