Professional learning faster, smarter, easier
Underpinning all of the professional learning through Vivify is the belief that continuous learning should be engaging, enjoyable and easy. That’s not to say that the content or concepts are easy, but rather the ways in which the materials are scaffolded provides you with clear steps to develop your understanding and means by which taking on new ideas is engaging rather than a chore. Most of the courses are built around video content while some are animated.
Most of the courses accept a PayPal direct payment that will grant immediate access to the password protected areas. We also accept bank transfers which is probably the preferred option for schools – banking details will be issued with the invoice as you complete the order online. Once the funds have been confirmed as received, then the user(s) will be granted full access to the course(s).
