Hodder Education is offering students nearly £1m worth of online learning resources, following the closures of schools owing to coronavirus.
The publisher is giving primary and secondary school pupils access to e-textbooks on its learning platform, in addition to a year's free usage of "Question Bank", and three months free access to its school reading scheme, Rising Stars Reading Planet.
Hodder Education m.d. Lis Tribe said: “One of our core values is putting teachers and students at the heart of what we do, and we were keen to help people continue learning during the lockdown.
"We wanted to curate a variety of offers to enable remote learning, which would not only be easy for teachers to navigate, but also straightforward to share with parents and students. We have been delighted by the response so far, with nearly 3,000 teachers claiming their free access to date, and we hope to help many more while schools remain closed during this pandemic.”
More content is expected to be released in the coming weeks, including pre-made lessons for all ages, digitised content for the My Revision Notes series and new resources for Key Stage 3 Geography and English.
