COMING SOON TO DISCOVERY EDUCATION ESPRESSO

Support all educators, engage all learners

Teachers everywhere rely on Discovery Education as the trusted leader in high-quality curriculum-aligned content. Now we are taking a huge leap forward as a trusted leader in educational technology. Explore the reimagined Discovery Education learning platform and see how we are giving teachers new ways to engage pupils and incorporate rich media into the learning experiences they design and deliver every day.

Find, view and save media

Discovery Education Espresso contains a treasury of videos, text-based passages, activities, sounds and images that spans curriculum subjects and critical topics of today. It’s diverse, authentic and leaves you wanting to explore more.

Now it's easier than ever to find the content you need. Improved search capabilities and a fresh new design guide you where you want to go. Pupils and educators can search, find and preview the content they need right when they need it.

Assign and share to pupils

Our redesigned video player will make it even easier for teachers to incorporate rich media into the learning experiences they design and deliver every day.

From the new video player page you will be able to:

  • Build an interactive video quiz or slideshow activity in a few simple steps
  • Assign the video directly to pupils and add context and instructions
  • Share the video with pupils or colleagues using a simple link
  • Find related resources as images, activities, sounds and more

Access and edit ready-to-use lesson activities

Just like the name suggests, ready-to-use activities mean you can spend more time teaching your pupils.

  • Use for quick assignments or customise in Studio, our creative presentation tool, to fit the needs of your pupils and your classroom.
  • Take advantage of lesson starters, background builders and more to jump-start your daily instruction and keep pupils engaged throughout.
  • Easily find these activities throughout our content channels, and in dedicated collections like the Calendar picks or Game zone channels.

Check understanding with Quiz

Our new interactive Quiz tool gives teachers many ways to promote active learning in the classroom and track pupil progress. Quiz results display in real-time so you can gauge participation and offer just-in-time feedback.

  • Ask Live Quiz: Ask questions live and share responses through virtual meeting solutions or in-person to spark lively discussions.
  • Standard Quiz: Check for understanding and pupil readiness with a range of question formats, from polling to open-ended, multiple-choice to image annotation.
  • Video-based Quiz: Choose a video relevant to your lesson, embed questions directly on the video viewing timeline, and assign in class.

Design digital lessons with Studio

Studio, our new collaboration and presentation tool, serves as your creative outlet for those activities you’ve always wanted to try. And, you can rely on Microsoft’s Immersive Reader for literacy support.

  • Start with one of our new activity templates based on SOS Instructional Strategies, then build a Studio Board or Slideshow to engage students in daily instruction.
  • If you or your pupils have a creative itch, you can design your own Board or Slideshow built with the content you select.
  • You and your students can collaborate in real-time within Studio Boards and Slideshows to encourage lively discussion no matter where the classroom is.
