What are channels?

Online channels let you use your computer just like your TV. Each channel matches specific interests, from great ideas for primary lessons, to our latest videos on SEN.

Simply click on the channel you want to watch and the first video will begin playing on your computer in full screen.

Where can I find channels?

You can find our channels on relevant pages, for example the governors channel will also appear on the governors page.

How do I watch a channel?

To select the channel you want, simply click on it. You will then see the message "channels only play in full screen mode" - select OK to watch the channel, or Cancel to go back to the previous screen.

Using a channel

Controls for the channel can be found at the bottom of the screen. They allow you to pause or go back to the beginning of a video. You can also change the volume, get more information on the video playing, or click on the progress bar to jump to a point within the video.

The channel controls also let you skip between the videos on a channel. If you want to view the next video straight away, click on the title and it will start playing immediately. You can scroll through the channel schedule by clicking the forward or back arrows at either side of the screen to see the full channel line-up.

For a TV-like experience, simply let the video play to the end, and the next video will automatically start a few seconds later.

The channel controls disappear while the video is playing. Moving your mouse or pressing a key on your keyboard will make them reappear.

Closing a channel

To close a channel, press the escape key, or click on the X button in the channel controls. This will take you back to the previous screen.

How do I see what is on a channel?

Before opening a channel, you can see its schedule by clicking on the left or right arrows underneath the channel. This will let you scroll through the videos without opening the channel.

Once you have opened a channel, you can scroll through the videos within it by clicking on the left and right arrows at the bottom of the screen. If you can't see the controls, move your mouse and they will reappear.
