We recommend that all students make use of this service throughout their GCSEs and particularly the exam period. Many teachers may set homework on the site using the “Assignment” feature as GCSEPod has already been proven to have a significant impact on A*-C performance and we aim to make it an integral part of learning for every GCSE student studying at the school.
Once logged in, students can search for podcasts by keyword, by a specific exam or by subject area. Students can create their own personalised learning playlists which can be easily downloaded for offline viewing. Help guides explaining how to use the site are available in the “Help” section in the top navigation bar.
If you have any questions regarding the GCSEPod service please contact Mr Reddy who is leading the roll out in school.
