Education Perfect’s technology minimising impact on 100 Coronavirus affected schools in China

As the Coronavirus continues to disrupt students and schools, Education Perfect (EP), through their online education platform, is supporting both students and teachers, in a timely manner, from their homes.

As a leading global education software provider, EP's online learning tool is already helping support over 100 schools in China affected by the Coronavirus. 

Seeing a dramatic increase in support calls from impacted schools using the platform in South East Asia and China, EP launched a taskforce to help aid schools in need. EP is also looking at ways to assist schools currently not using the platform during this uncertain time.

EP’s Head of Community, Tim Vaughan, highlighted the urgency of the situation in the region - “This is unprecedented and many schools are now having to navigate the delivery of their lessons entirely online. EP presents a unique opportunity for schools to elevate the roles of their teachers through rich data and insights, whilst providing students with an engaging and effective learning experience remotely. Plugging directly into a school's existing Learning Management System, schools can minimise the impact of the current disruptions.” 

Currently used by over 1 million students across 1,800 schools, as a cloud-based software, EP enables schools to deliver curriculum-aligned lessons and assessments remotely. By allowing teachers to monitor and measure how students are engaging with their learning in real time, teachers can maximise their efficacy - even in a remote setting.   

The impact of learning in a remote setting was highlighted by EP’s recent engagement with the  ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) Group. With their Spring Leadership Conference postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, member schools have had the opportunity to access EP and continue their teaching and learning online. The response was overwhelmingly positive which only highlighted the need to make EP available for more schools. 

EP are a New Zealand-based organisation, originally started by Craig and Shane Smith, two brothers who were struggling with their learning at school, with the platform now being used in 27 countries around the world.  

“Being able to support schools who are affected by these disruptions is very much in the Kiwi spirit. This commitment is a small reflection of the investment teachers are putting into the lives of students everyday. It is great to see technology and the EP platform helping to solve this global problem.” - CEO, Alex Burke.

Schools, organisations and governments who are being affected by Coronavirus disruptions are encouraged to register for further details.
