The Faculties are a new, free educational resource especially for those A-level students thinking about applying to University.
The website provides short films of university lecturers speaking on topics drawn from the A-level curriculum in Maths, English, Biology, Psychology, Chemistry and History. There are currently over 300 podcasts on the site, with more to follow.
The aim of The Faculties website is to encourage deeper learning, stretch and inspire learners and help them make a successful transition to university.
On 'The Faculties', the recordings are specially designed for the A-level classroom. All the topics have been provided by the major exam boards and by teachers and so consequently, they are more directly relevant to the A-level curriculum.
Videos are hosted directly on the site, and not pulled in from YouTube which should avoid filtering issues in some learning environments.
Videos can be downloaded, but only on request.
Videos can still be embedded into VLE’s etc, and linked to directly.
