Message From The Founder

I have been a teacher of over 20 years' experience in delivering computing in schools. Computing is a specialism subject and schools struggle with specialist staff. To address this issue, I created a unique eLearning Platform that teaches, gives tasks and test all students from Key Stage 1 to 4 in every aspect of Computing.

Schools are struggling for Computing teachers. Just 35% of computing teachers are specialists, which means, 65% of computing lessons are taught by non-specialists and this barrier is widening. Fortunate schools have 1 specialist with the rest, non-specialists. DC360 allow both specialist and non-specialists to deliver computing successfully and efficiently, ensure that high quality lesson are delivered every time. Created by a teacher, myself, and support by our testing schools.

I created a platform that teaches the subject from the ground up. Fully mapped to the national curriculum and in line with schools ever changing needs, DC360 tracks and grades students on their progressive learning each lesson, gives them practical tasks to do using either software which is integrated into our platform or popular external software and marks this work. DC360 teaches the students not just the theory but how to use the software as well making it perfect for a non-specialist.

Finally, DC360 checks the students’ theory knowledge by assessing them and combining the learning journey, tasks, homework, extension work and test together to form a complete picture. In addition, there are full lesson plans (over 750) with SOW, mapping documents and checklists with every answer complete with screenshots and diagrams to support a non-specialist. Marking is consistent as it is done by DC360. It is all fully mapped. Homework is built in and auto marked, there are flashcards and extension tasks. DC360 solves the issue for heads of computing in both primary and secondary school by offering at complete constantly updated suite of units and tools.

We have been awarded the best eLearning Platform for 2 years running. We are now working towards full differentiation where every one of our 750 plus lessons will be in 3 levels. This will make every lesson completely 100% differentiated in 3 ways.

In addition, teachers can upload their own worksheets and the student complete them online. RAG ratings can be done by schools that require this system and a fully integrated WWW, EBI and Peer Assessment is also included.

There is even in-class support where a teacher clicks and gets help from us instantly while they are in class. Integrated software includes Web Buster Photo Graphics useful up to A Level graphics work, Web Buster Animation for creating animation and .mp4 movies, Word Processing tools, IDLE’s for Python, HTML, Logo, C#, JavaScript, Visual Basic and more.

A student account allows all this to be used at home, so no software licences are needed. For those that prefer to use industry stand software, students can select for the lessons to be taught using software of their choice for example, when doing the Graphics unit students can chose to be taught to use Web Buster Photo Graphics, Photoshop, Serif Photo Plus, Photopea or Affinity.

Deliver Computing 360 allows all schools with both specialist and non-specialists to Deliver Computing successfully and easily.

Accounts

DC360 supports Wonde synchronisation, this means that student details, class data and group changes are updated automatically every night. New student accounts are automatically created overnight when you synchronise with Wonde.

The school has an account and the student profiles are created. This is a locked secure system, students cannot sign up. When a teacher logs in they see their group and marks from each unit. They can then delve down to the see answers given and the marks per task and finally delve even further to see the marks per individual question or activity and compare them with other students in their school who did the same test. A national average graph to compare your students with a combined total of every school using the system allows you to see how your students are performing nationally.

For schools who do not wish to use Wonde there is a manual procedure available. When using this manual procedure the school admin can create additional profiles for new students.

 

Students even have a free cloud storage which allows them to take work home, do work at home and bring it back.


Home Learning
  • DC360 allows the student or teacher to retrieve a lost username or password without the need to contact the school admin.
  • Assignments can be set online in a special homeworking section for those who need to work at home. Homework and normal tasks are set under other sections to allow the student to easily see what they must do. The student then ticks off the work once they have done it and the teacher then clicks to verify this.
  • An instant messaging chat system allows the teacher to communicate with students or whole classes instantly and securely.


Safe Guards

Deliver Computing 360 is built to teach students how an online network works, but with key safeguards, making it an ultra-safe environment. For example, profiles can be set up by students so they can learn the importance of profiles, but they can only select from a choice of predefined avatars and backgrounds. This prevents harmful content but allows them to learn how to set up profiles correctly. Our friend's system is called "Study Buddy" and allows students to learn how to set up friendships in a very safe and secure way. The Deliver Computing 360 system is monitored by the school admin and each individual can be blocked for misuse. The system has a number of words and phrases which are automatically blocked for safeguarding. You can request for more words to be added to this list.

Our internal secure email system even teaches students about email passwords, security codes, copy and BCC.



Branding
  • The platform is fully branded to your school, giving the students the feeling that is made for them.
  • Key school documents can be uploaded by the school admin and are specific to your school.
  • School logo, School colour scheme, Academy Logo and internal logos and policies can be added.


Analysis
  • Teachers can use live monitoring to see the answers that their students are giving to questions during a test. This gives an insight into the gaps in their knowledge and allows the teacher to act and or plan while the students are continuing the test.
  • The teacher can look at the notes that a student has made and give them feedback on the results they have earned, this can be via comments, RAG ratings or a combination of both.
  • The teacher can look at the lessons, tasks, homework and test papers for any student and see the work that they have completed, what the correct answer was and what feedback they were given. DC360 gives feedback on all questions automatically meaning that the teacher does not need to.


Schemes of Work
  • There are full Schemes of work for every single unit across Key Stages 1 to 4.
  • Tracking documents for what is happening and when it is happening.
  • Additional resources to aid in teaching and offering extension work.


Lesson Plans

There are over 750 "Tick as you teach" lesson plans complete with the answer for every part and a starter for each lesson. All make in line with Ofsted requirements.


Marking

Most of the work is marked by our system. Our system even marks essay questions and tasks. You can override any marks if you wish. In line with Ofsted, our platform also marks the students on their learning ability. Every question gives feedback and then additional feedback is given for the overall grade, this is done automatically. Every unit is fully differentiated to 3 ability levels, Path A high ability, Path B middle ability, Path C lower ability.

When students submit coursework or if the teacher sets a piece of work, this is marked online by the tutor using our fantastic marking system, which on average reduces the teacher's marking time by 67%. DC360 allows you to:

  • Show the current marking status
  • Give Feedback
  • Give a Grade
  • RAG Rate
  • Review with Self Assessment
  • Review with Peer Assessment
  • Ask for it to be Re-submitted (in which case our system keeps all versions)
  • Marks as approved


The student is then informed of the status so they don't need to keep asking the teacher if it's been marked yet. They are also informed when it has been marked along with the feedback, rag rating and grade given.



Students can then self assess their work and peer assessment by another student can also be given.
