What Do Our Instructors Say?

"It has been a pleasure to be part of the development of the new MathsMakers online programmes. A great deal of thought has gone into making the tutorials an engaging, interactive and valuable learning experience for students. Every effort has been made to ensure they have opportunities to contribute their ideas and answers, both directly and anonymously through polls. Students have become more confident and have commented favourably on their learning experience.

Incorporating short videos into the lessons has proved to be a really good idea. These add variety and provide effective, memorable visuals and animations. The instructor is able to pause to clarify, emphasise, ask questions, check understanding, praise, and share good answers. Also, students are attentive to video and this helps with engagement.


On the technical side, it has been a steep learning curve for us all. However, the support and guidance for MathsMakers instructors is excellent and I am looking forward to continuing being part of the team."
