GCSEPod

GCSEPod is an award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,250 schools worldwide. 

Students have access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable: every Pod is mapped to an exam board, and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams needed for GCSE success – all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists. 

One of the best things about GCSEPod is that you can download any Pod to a mobile device, and then they can watch them at any time, in any place, with or without internet. It’s like they’re carrying a whole set of textbooks in your pocket! 

GCSEPod also has the ability to identify knowledge gaps and automatically send playlists to help fill them!
