Teachers’ time is ever more limited. Make the most of yours with askOLA

How does it work?

Through askOLA, students can instantly chat to subject experts who will explain concepts and work through sticking points, like a teaching assistant would. Another pair of hands to support you. 

We then feed back to you with easy-to-read reports, including data on usage and knowledge gaps.  

Whether assigned to support your learners from home, or used as a trusted partner in the classroom, we’re here to help.
