Powerfully simple lesson recording technology and integrated professional development platform

IRIS Capture Practice

Record classroom-based and online teaching

Whether you’re classroom-based or teaching online, our Discovery Kit and Screen Capture technology allows you to easily record every lesson. Once the recording is finished, the video is automatically uploaded into your secure and private account on our fully GDPR compliant platform.

Reflect and analyse

See your lesson from a new perspective, completely in private and whenever it suits you. Illuminate those dark corners in the room that you might not necessarily notice when you’re teaching. Use our intuitive analysis tools to gain deeper insights into the teaching and learning in your classroom and adapt your lessons accordingly to improve student outcomes.

Share and collaborate

Use IRIS Connect for effective coaching over distance, developmental lesson observations and for giving and receiving valuable, contextualised feedback by sharing a clip of your teaching at the click of a button. Time-stamped comments and our fully integrated video conferencing tool overcome common timetabling constraints and location differences.

Learn and improve

Build libraries of good practice and tap into the collective wisdom of other teachers in our community through ‘Groups’. Allowing you to share real teaching practice, valuable knowledge and anonymised videos as a great resource for both ECTs and more experienced practitioners alike.

You can also access evidence-based teaching theories and models via UnityPD on the same platform.

Safeguarding & Security

We take safeguarding and security seriously. All classroom videos are encrypted and automatically uploaded to the teacher’s private and secure account in our fully GDPR compliant platform, ready to reflect on or share at a later date.

By default, only the teacher who uploaded a recording has access to it unless they decide to share a video at their own discretion. Ensuring full control and privacy for every user.

Discovery Kit + Discovery Kit Go Live

The Discovery Kit’s combination of dual view technology and high-quality audio recording ensures you capture every interaction in your classroom. Our ‘Go Live’ feature offers a flexible solution for observing lessons remotely. It allows you to conduct live coaching sessions from anywhere with a wifi connection; making feedback immediate and effective. Ask us for more information.

Designed with busy teachers in mind, each camera is simple to set up, easy to use and light to transport between classrooms; taking the hassle out of lesson recording.

“In the past academic year we’ve had 515 lessons recorded across our academies and those were viewed 5,062 times by our staff. From a Trust perspective, IRIS Connect is a fantastic tool for not only capturing our most effective practice but most importantly, spreading it.”

– Sonya Lanckham, Strategic Leader for Teaching and Learning at Windsor Academy Trust

Yes, provided you are adherent to your organisation’s policies, have taken into account any safeguarding concerns and meet the appropriate GDPR requirements. The following resources will assist you with your GDPR requirements for recording:
1) Select and document your lawful basis

3) Complete a DPIA
Using IRIS Connect ensures the data you collect is captured, stored and shared securely meeting the GDPR requirements for the data, whilst enabling you to achieve the highest level of professional development through the use of the features, guides and analytical tools available on our system.

This depends.

  1. Does your organisation’s policy allow the use of personal devices? If they are not approved, you can either purchase an IRIS Connect Starter or Discovery Kit, or use shared school devices. Our consultants are happy to discuss your requirements with you and suggest a solution that meets your needs.

  2. Regardless of the device you’re using, you must always make sure you have installed and use the IRIS Connect Record app. Our app is designed to securely capture, encrypt and upload recordings directly to your account, then automatically remove the file once uploaded. This means data is never stored or viewed locally which can be a security risk. The app is also designed to manage the uploading of large files over the internet and offers a range of features such as pairing for capturing two views and anonymisation mode if you need to avoid capturing personal data when recording.

Prices are starting from £1,504 / year for primary schools and £2,741 / year for secondary schools. However, all our packages are tailored to your school’s individual requirements. To get an exact quote for your school, please get in touch and your regional consultant will be happy to help.

Simply fill in the form above and we’ll happily take the time to answer any questions you may have.
