Introducing Bramble Broadcast

A tailored solution to help teachers and schools deliver live online lessons to all their students for free.

Designed for every student.

In working with dozens of charities throughout the Coronavirus crisis, we realise the importance of making online learning accessible. Our novel voice solutions and shared whiteboard help you teach richer, more engaging lessons using a fraction of the bandwidth required for traditional video conferencing.

Easy to use. For all.

Teaching live lessons on Bramble is simple. Your students join a lesson with a single click, without having to download or install anything. You simply send them a link, they open it using Google Chrome and they’re ready to go.

As a teacher, you have access to a familiar set of tools that almost make it feel like you’re back in the classroom using the whiteboard.

Explain concepts to your students and ask them for their thoughts.
Use Resources
Upload any image or PDF to the board and then add annotations.
Use the pen tool to draw diagrams, add annotations and solve problems.
Use the text tool to add annotations to diagrams and resources.

Your lessons. Your way.

We understand that every class is different, so we give you the power to configure your lesson however you like – whether you're teaching 5 students or 30 students. First, choose between two different audio modes. Then select which whiteboard tools you want your students to have access to in the lesson.

Choose audio mode

Your students can all hear you and you can hear them but they can’t hear each other. This lets you speak with all your students yet minimise their bandwidth.
Your students can all hear you but you won’t be able to hear them. This can make it easier to manage audio and minimises your bandwidth requirements.

Pen Only
