Digital learning platform launched


Updated 15/04/2021

Gower College Swansea is delighted to launch OpenClass, a bespoke learning platform for the city’s Year 11 school pupils.

In response to the ongoing and ever-evolving situation with Covid-19, the College has been keen to develop a bespoke platform to help keep applicants on track with their learning.

The platform features learning materials, activities and tools from across a range of curriculum areas including health and care, engineering, science and business. It also includes VR tours of College campuses and activities that support the development of digital skills and well-being.

“We were really keen to develop something that would give prospective students a chance to explore College courses during this challenging period,” says Interactive Learning Technology (ILT) Team Leader, Kate Pearce. “It will no doubt help them become familiar with the curriculum ahead of starting with us in the autumn.”

“We are committed to ensuring our applicants have access to learning materials that will not only help to develop their skills, but increase confidence and ultimately enable a smooth transition from school to college when the time comes,” adds Deputy Principal, Nick Brazil.
