FoS Pro

Our new extended version of Focus on Sound!

MySchool

Just starting to realise the immense potential of this upgrade. Still can't believe how utterly amazing this is for the price. This is literally going to save us hours and hours of time. Helen Blythe - The Bewdley School and Sixth Form Centre.

The Pro version includes a 'My School' tab between Lessons and Results. Students see this as a 'My Class' tab.

Here's what you're able to do:

  • Assign work for individual classes, groups of classes or the whole school. This can be existing Focus on Sound content, tests or lessons, or you can set your own work including external links
  • Set up and upload your own content for use in the Focus on Sound environment (pictures, audio, text, video, etc.)
  • Set your own tests, using up to 4 types of test and 17 different types of question. You can use FoS media or upload your own. We are confident that this facility will be far beyond what is possible in any existing virtual learning environment. Not all test and question types will be available at launch.
  • On their My Class tab, students will only see the work assigned to their class or to the whole school
  • Teachers whose licences don't expire at the end of August will be able to purchase a part year upgrade. If you opt to keep to the standard version of FoS you should know that the current My School panel on the Lessons page will not be available when you renew, unless you upgrade.
