Ashbourne is running an Online Distance Learning Programme that makes it possible for our students to continue their full timetable of A level and GCSE classes whilst the college premises remain closed, in compliance with UK Government regulations to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Lessons are being delivered live-stream through a class-wide audio-visual call by their teachers using Google Meet. Students are able to see and hear their teacher, engage with their teachers and classmates and view on-screen illustrations of examples and learning materials provided by the teacher to support the lesson.
Our teachers also set and collect homework using Google Classroom. Students submit their work via this platform which can then be reviewed in lesson time or through personal feedback online. Class assignments, subject tests and mocks will be set via the platform. Teachers and students will be able to monitor work completion and progress using this platform.
Ashbourne is also developing complementary online resources, such as video lectures, for extra revision to support our students and is providing access to Unifrog, an online platform that allows students to continue working on their university applications remotely, with expert guidance and support from their teachers.
Ashbourne’s Online Distance Learning Programme will continue to run for students who are unable to attend classes in person when UK Government regulations permit the college to reopen its premises. Overseas students will be able to take part in lessons, conducted by the teacher in the classroom with the rest of the class, using our online learning platform and resources. We are planning to expand our suite of audio-visual equipment to enhance the online learning programme.
We believe that our Online Distance Learning Programme will enable students from all over the world to benefit from Ashbourne’s high quality tuition, exceptional individual attention and support and choice we offer to help our students reach the highest grades.
