Overview

NEO Learning is a portal for schools to search, book and participate in live online video sessions provided by off-site educators. Different sections of the portal contain sessions covering different areas of school life: from school lessons and presentations in the Curriculum and Career sections to webinars in the Extra-curriculum and Teachers' CPD sections and to live streaming of events in the Arena section. 

Off-site educators define the content and time schedule of educational sessions (events) and then deliver them. Schools search for appropriate sessions in a calendar, book the events they want to attend, participate in the booked sessions and then provide feedback comments.  Users can also browse the Providers Library with more detailed information on each of the providers on the portal. Both events and provider's pages are custom-branded.

Both off-site educators and schools have accounts on the portal from which they can view a personalised calendar of completed and pending events, create analytic reports and carry out various administrative functions. In addition, off-site educators' accounts have their branding information.

Both off-site educators and schools have different categories of users: administrators, who will typically manage the organisation's account and have access to the data for the whole organisation, supervising users who either run or book events (event creators and teachers respectively) and participating users who attend events (students who attend webinars as individual attendees).

Access to features and data is controlled rigorously by user account permissions and protected by passwords.

An integrated messaging system on the portal allows its users to send direct messages to each other.
