The Elevate-enhanced Edition is fully customisable and interactive, with text that can be annotated, rich and varied video content and auto-marked questions.
The Elevate-enhanced Edition also features a ‘My Work’ folder, enabling students to submit work and teachers to assess effectively, as well as track progress.
