Student satisfaction survey score


"The online lesson was very straightforward and easy to follow, it felt like an actual face-to-face lesson! I really liked the annotations and diagrams that my teacher made alongside the content. Through this online platform, it was actually easier for me to understand the teacher. The structure in which the lesson was presented helped me engage with the question and directly answer it, while also allowing me to learn at my own pace."

Justin Kim, Knox Grammar School

"I'm confident that any students dedicated to learning via the video will be successful. The videos are clear, structured like a regular classroom lesson and comprehensive. The videos are a good alternative to being in class on campus!"

Amanda Shi, James Ruse Agricultural High School

"It feel like a continuous stream of learning rather than a one-off video made to fill in a gap. I really enjoy how the teachers do not just read what the Theory Book says, they add additional information that may help the student piece together concepts. I felt that I gained a much higher level of understanding of the lesson material. Without the video, it would be difficult for me to understand the content as well."

Eric Papadopoulos, Sylvania High School

"I enjoyed being able to re-play parts of the video that I misunderstood, or needed to hear for a second time. I also liked being able to skip over some sections which I was comfortable with or had already finished. Being able to do this allowed me to learn in a way that matched my abilities, and kept me engaged during the lesson. This really helped in solidifying my understanding of the new content, as well as maintaining my engagement."

Nia Worthington, St Ursula's College Kingsgrove

"The online theory lessons complete the entire lesson from that week from beginning to end. There are no questions skipped which provides a better sense of completion and finality to each lesson. Being able to pause the video and rewind is very useful as sometimes I know that I require extra time to run over certain concepts which may be new to me or are more challenging."

Emily Dinh, James Ruse Agricultural High School

"The videos are easy to follow with the Theory Book and concepts are clearly explained. The teacher spoke clearly and at a good pace. I liked that the video had a quick recap of the previous week's content. I think the videos improved my learning experience as I can re-watch them if I don't understand a concept and I can also learn the content at my own pace. The Matrix resources have always been helpful in getting me ahead of school so Matrix videos will help in the same way."

Muskan Gupta, Baulkham Hills High School
