I really enjoy using this platform as a tool to support the content that has been taught in class. I am finding it to be the best way to engage and help teach my classes during lockdown, as well. The feedback sections is easy to navigate and the recorded messages help make my feedback seem more personalised, especially during lockdown, when student-teacher contact is limited.

As a result of the introduction in 2020, the Maths Department has now chosen EP as its preferred online tool to support learning in Mathematics.”
