Arlen Online – powered by Linkstreet
Each student is provided with access to the Arlen Online Academy where the course is structured and the materials for each lesson are stored. Arlen Online is integrated with Zoom; each class is joined from the platform and centrally structured. Within the platform are class materials and also past paper questions to assist with self-learning. Teaching takes place in small groups of up to 5 students.

Online Whiteboard – powered by BitPaper
During the classes, an online whiteboard is shared with students which has all materials uploaded onto it. The tutor is able to annotate the whiteboard remotely via an iPad connection. At the end of each class the whiteboard is uploaded to the platform so no notes are ever lost.

Introduction
Each block of lessons is structured around a 4 week timetable, based on 1.5-2hrs of tuition per week with homework and self-study. We plan each block of lessons in accordance with the needs of the particular group, structuring sessions to cover topics to address areas of weakness. We always incorporate requests from students to work on particular topics which they find challenging. Homework is set according to each pupil’s needs and submitted via Arlen Online.

Homework / Reporting
Our tutors set homework to consolidate the topic being taught during the session. This is usually a set of past paper questions in line with our focus on improving exam technique. At the end of each block of lessons the tutors will share a short report with the students with advice on how to improve further.

Arlen Mobile App – powered by RapL
All students have access to the Arlen mobile app. Tutors set short sets of questions via the app which the students complete on their mobile devices. RapL identifies individual knowledge gap and uses spaced repetition of scenarios in weak areas until the student has mastered the topic.

[accordion-item title=”Homework & Progress Tracking”]

Arlen Online provides students with access to 1,000s of past paper questions as well as a full suite of past examination papers. Our tuition team will set assessments and targets for our students to complete in order to progress and track their learning. This is managed by a tutor, not a computer, so we are able to provide bespoke recommendations and advice, not generic, computer generated, “one-size-fits-all” suggestions.

Our online quizzes, run through Rapl & Educake, feed into our platform and allow tutors to track understanding and progress. These are short assessments written in line with the syllabus and provide students with the chance to quickly practice and test their understanding of specific topics within the programme.
