Inverclyde Council has recently launched an innovative digital learning system as a part of a £527,000 investment package that also includes the purchase of laptops and upgrading school wireless internet connection.
The scheme, which was launched in partnership with ClickView, a video content company, aims to provide pupils access to pre-recorded teaching and learning videos and resources. The firm previously launched a free version of the digital learning site in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Guaranteeing our schools, staffs and students have access to world-class digital resources alongside existing teaching methods and other mechanisms video resources are a key part of our progress in bridging the attainment gap."
He added: "The council has invested heavily in our school estate - an unprecedented £270 million to renew or extensively refurbish our buildings.
"We've shown commitment to enhancing the technology which helps educate our young people, and this is so important int he digital age we live in."
