Explore a Kaplan classroom

Designed to make collaboration easy

Our learning environments have been carefully designed to be flexible, adaptable and engaging.

Each classroom is equipped with wireless technology to make information-sharing instant and clutter-free, while table layouts can be quickly rearranged to suit any situation, whether it's a group debate or a practice exam.

Our classrooms also feature three screens, each of which can be operated independently so that groups of students can work through different material simultaneously.

Greater tutor support and feedback on individual performance

Students are provided with Chromebooks that allow tutors to monitor their performance in real-time during a lesson, giving them insight into when and where students need their assistance.

As well as allowing tutors to spend less time on administration and more on teaching, this makes frequent, individualised feedback one of the core features of the Kaplan learning experience.

Flexibility to work at your own pace

Today's students should be able to learn in any environment, and arrange their personal study at times suitable to them.

MyKaplan gives students access to all their learning resources via one login, providing time-management tools, online tests with instant feedback, and direct contact with tutors – allowing students to take the classroom with them wherever they go.

Deepen your understanding

Kaplan classrooms feature interactive whiteboards, which allow tutors to drill into subjects, highlight and make notes as the students progress through a topic.

As well as being useful for tutors, these also support greater interactivity and collaboration for students – for example, by providing on-screen tools students can use to work through a problem on the whiteboard together.

The right balance of lecturing, discussion, practice and reflection time

At Kaplan, we embrace blended learning – an approach that means our students experience a mixture of in-class discussion and personal tuition, as well as personal study and practice time supported by digital content.

Our modern learning environments are open-plan, with no front or back, so that tutors can easily switch between a traditional style of directive teaching and more informal collaboration with students.

360° teaching

Tutors change the dynamic of the class, moving between different teaching positions and using the coloured whiteboards to draw attention to specific details.

The layout of the classroom makes it as easy for tutors to engage with individual students as well as the entire class.
