GCSEpod has landed
The school currently subscribes to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free to all students at the college and which we believe will be of great benefit to them during the coming year.
GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success. The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline viewing. The podcasts are also mapped to the curriculum and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time.
All students have already been registered with GCSEPod and so simply need to:
- Login to FROG
- From the Quick Launch icon (lightning bolt in a square), click the GCSEPod button
When you first click the button on Frog, they will be asked a few setup questions such as what subjects they study. You will also be asked to choose a username and password; however, as long as you always login to GCSEPod via Frog, you will never have to enter these as you are logged in automatically.
Once logged in, you 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.
