Edrolo


Dear Parents/Guardians

Your child will be using Edrolo as an essential online and textbook VCE resource to support their studies in 2021. This resource has been comprehensively assessed and chosen by your child’s teachers and the school as a core teaching and learning resource. The following information outlines the key benefits of this resource for your child as they approach their final years at school, and how to pay for their online and/or hardcopy access via the Edrolo Payment Portal. Payment must be made by 18 December. 

What is the Edrolo Standard Resource?

Edrolo is an online resource that provides interactive videos and exam questions for Year 11 and 12 students. Edrolo is currently used by 1,000+ schools and 100,000+ students. You can find out more about how Edrolo will support your child in their VCE in this short video: edrolo.com.au/parents/

Our school will use Edrolo as a teaching and learning tool to further enhance what is covered in class. Our teachers will use Edrolo for:

  • prescribed holiday homework
  • pre-class work
  • post-class consolidation
  • assessment preparation and exam revision
  • student self-study
  • student feedback

Edrolo’s Textbooks

Edrolo publishes textbooks that go far beyond the traditional textbooks we are generally familiar with. The main features of the Edrolo textbook include:

  • Exam-style questions to help prepare students throughout the year.
  • Answers for every question plus corresponding checklists to support student understanding.
  • Video solutions accompanying all textbook questions, recorded by expert educators to guide students to understand what is required to answer the questions. 
  • Extra support with homework! There are loads of videos which are accessible 24/7 to help your child understand what they need to know for a SAC or exam. 
  • Data that is accessible by the teacher to help them better understand the next steps in your child’s learning. 

What does Edrolo cost?

  • Standard Edrolo Course: $33 incl GST per subject
  • Edrolo Textbook Resource + Standard Edrolo Course: $77 incl. GST + optional $29 hardcopy textbook (delivered to your home address). Delivery of the hardcopy books will take place in late January 2021 in time for the commencement of classes.

How do I pay via the Edrolo Payment Portal for my child’s access?

Payment must be made for Edrolo via the online Edrolo Payment Portal. As your child will be using Edrolo as a key resource in the subscribed subjects, please ensure payment is made as early as possible to ensure minimal disruption to their all-important studies. Payments can be made online through your child’s Edrolo account from 30 November onwards.

If payment has not been received by or prior to December 18, your child will be blocked from accessing all of their Edrolo courses until the balance has been paid in full (no later than March 15, 2021). Please ensure payment is made by this date, as your child will have homework and classwork to complete on Edrolo through Term 4 and the summer break. As soon as account payment has been made, access to all courses will be restored.

Please see below for instructions on how your child can activate their Edrolo account in order to access the Payment Portal to complete payment.
