” The Primary Goal Of Lesson Observation Software Must Be To Help Staff Improve”
Free Up TIME
Don’t let lesson observations become a “black hole” for time. All observation types are recorded online and the “workload” can be spread among all levels of staff. Different levels of access filter what an individual can see and do in the lesson observation software – from Managers and Line Managers to observees.
PEACE OF MIND
When you know that observation admin, recording & tracking are “being taken care of” in the most efficient, staff engaging way possible.
SHARE Good Practice Easily
Upload video, documents, sound files, images, PowerPoint etc. this lesson observation software makes the sharing of good practice quick and easy
KNOW WHERE YOU ARE
With Action Points & Follow Ups
Set and monitor objectives and action points to show what’s being done and the effectiveness of actions taken to improve the quality of teaching and learning through staff support and training. Compliance is helped by automatic weekly emails listing points requiring follow up.
CPD – Make It More EFFECTIVE
This is more than lesson observation software – we record an individual’s CPD implemented and its effectiveness. And the staff member has their own personal CPD log they can access at any time from anywhere.
Keep all staff ON-BOARD.
An Online Evaluation Form is built-in
An Evaluation Form option allows the observee to give their feedback for a lesson observation. This will help management to see how the Observation Process is being used/perceived by staff.

We became aware that our procedures in the area of tracking lesson observations, and sharing good practice, needed a more structured and formal approach. Observation Manager meets our needs in this area and we have found it to have a minimal learning curve.

Easy access and storage of tutor assessments, observations and action planning. It was great to see the tutor interacting with the comments. I can see immense benefit for gathering tutor feedback on their own development and input to the quality process.
