The challenge for education in this COVID-19 world is :

· How do we teach off-campus with students?
· How do we build engaging lessons?
· Where can we get world-class digital and multimedia content to communicate.
· How do we build accountability & tracking?
· How do we guarantee delivery to a diverse population with zero IT support on their end.
· How do we build accountability & tracking for teachers and students. 

At TV4Education we have been doing this for more than 9 years.

It’s definitely not a big financial commitment that will tie you down for years.

It’s easy, simple and integrates with any digital system.

Let us show you how.

TV4education, the digital repository (from prep to university) for on-campus and off-campus teaching and learning.

We just did an audit and 4,646,573 minutes of educational content ready to use.

That’s not including the request for lessons and content for specific topics and curriculum outcomes in excess of 20,000 items.

We are here to respond to every Education department and its teachers’ requirements for content and delivery. We also track every student’s engagement level with the content and lessons delivered.

On a lighter note, you realize it would take you almost nine years to watch everything in our ever-growing collection if we did not add anything new! We add on average of 250 new items every week.

In the past two weeks, our team members have spent countless hours on telephone calls and webinars understanding the rapidly changing landscape of education at ground zero. 

One comment that has stuck with me from one of my sessions was by a Head of Learning: "Teachers who were reluctant to move towards and integrate technology are now finding themselves forced into technology". 

Whilst this is the case for every teacher, primary to secondary, maths to drama, it is our responsibility as education facilitators to adapt and provide solutions to assist teachers. 

We've been overwhelmed with the feedback from teachers advising that they wished they moved towards TV4Education and SmartClassrooms sooner. 

If you haven't yet spoken with one of our team members, may I highly recommend that you do as our objective is to facilitate your teaching needs. We won't try to force you to use all 100+ features of our system but will listen, identify and advise the best parts of our solutions for your school's unique needs.
