Hegarty Maths notice
Hegarty Maths is a fully interactive online learning resource, consisting of over 600 online tasks with accompanying video tutorials from Colin Hegarty (UK National Teacher of the Year 2015). When students are set homework on Hegarty Maths, accompanying videos are part of the online tasks, providing a visual learning aspect and explanation of the topic being taught. The website generates random questions so that every student is asked a different set of questions.
Hegarty Maths uses the video hosting and sharing platform, Vimeo, to host their educational videos. Vimeo is a separate entity and different company to Hegarty Maths and it is only used to provide the video hosting facility to them. As with similar video hosting and sharing platforms, such as YouTube, Vimeo contains a variety of content, submitted from its various users. The content is both commercial and personal and is rated from 'everyone' through to ‘mature’ and is therefore not suitable for all persons. Whilst this content is not directly available from the Hegarty Maths learning platform, it has the potential to be explored separately from Hegarty Maths on the main Vimeo video hosting and sharing platform website itself.
At Corby Business Academy we are committed to providing the best and safest learning environment possible to all students. With this in mind, we have ensured that access to the main website of Vimeo has been restricted on our school site and have only allowed the educational learning videos. We would like to take this opportunity to remind parents and guardians to be mindful and as vigilant as ever with internet use and specifically the use of video hosting and sharing platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo, outside of the Academy.
