Improve teaching through video-enabled reflection and collaboration

Discover the market-leading PLD solution used by over 85,000 educators worldwide.

IRIS Connect is a video-enabled professional learning platform. It gives teachers the opportunity to record classroom-based teaching and learning using our IRIS Connect App and Discovery Kit, or capture online teaching using integrated screen-capture tools.

All videos are securely transferred to the teacher’s personal, password protected account on our cloud-based platform. From there, teachers can reflect on teaching and learning, analyse practice, add time-stamped comments, edit their videos and – if they want to – share with colleagues, coaches or leaders for feedback.

Empowered, connected and confident teachers are stronger teachers, and stronger teachers nurture better outcomes for learners.

Make teaching and learning visible wherever it’s happening.

Connect your teachers wherever they are, and provide PLD whenever they need it. Now more than ever we need to develop effective distance working and learning practices. IRIS Connect latest features continue to make collaborative professional learning effective regardless of location.

In this video hear examples of:

A school principal who has made lesson observation cost-effective and available on demand; a coach who can be in multiple classrooms at the same time; a new teacher who’s getting instantaneous feedback on his lesson; an experienced teacher who can reflect on and share her teaching practice with a peer group she feels safe in and students who have made measurable progress through the teachers’ use of IRIS Connect.
