Our mission at EdPlace is to reach and help any students in need of support, which is why we offer totally free account options. However, we want to provide the very best learning resources which sometimes requires a lot of work and investment. So, there are some elements of our resources and accounts which your parent, teacher or tutor would need to pay for you to access. Don't worry though, if you don't have access to these areas, there will still be hundreds of other activities you can access and work on!
What type of resources are classed as 'premium content'?
The areas which are currently classed as premium content are:
- 11+ intermediate and expert level activities;
- Most assessments;
- Most revision activities (practice papers and exam-style questions for key milestones e.g. GCSE, SATs, MTC, etc.).
When you are browsing in your student account, you will be able to see all resources which are currently available on EdPlace but a locked padlock icon will show those that are locked to free users. You will still be able to preview this activity to see what it includes, but you will be unable to assign it to yourself. Great news - we have kept some sample activities open in all areas so that you can give all areas and subjects a try without restrictions!
The icon which tells you that an activity is premium looks like this:
How can I access these resources?
To assign and use premium activities, your parent, teacher or tutor will need to upgrade your account to a paid subscription. If you would like them to do this, then why not have a chat with them and explain which resources you want to access and why?
If they upgrade, the padlock will disappear and every single activity will be open for you to browse, assign and use. If, at the end of this paid period, they choose to downgrade back to a free plan, any premium activities which are assigned to you will be removed from your To Do List but all results for any completed premium activities will remain displayed in the Scores section of your dashboard.
If you need any further help with premium content or have any questions or suggestions, please contact our friendly Customer Support Team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org - we are here to help you get the most out of using EdPlace!
