    We have it here for the year 11 revision, from what I see they enjoy it and the staff say it's definitely helped them.

    We looked at it but didn't purchase. We got mixed feedback from staff and students when we trialled it. Some of our 'high flying' students would probably use it but the lower end student probably wouldn't bother.

    Teachers said the quality of content varied from subject to subject.

    We're running it but no idea how they're getting on with it.

    Same as @plexer

    Seems really good but as with anything you need the staff to sell it. We have it "advertised" on the vle homepage

    Hi,

    Hoping to resurrect this thread.. Is anyone using anything similar to GCSE Pod? If so, what do use and how successful has it been? I'm told that there are free alternatives that are just a good.
