Prepare learners for tomorrow through curiosity, engagement and real-world experiences

Product Type

Engage all learners

Save time planning, deliver exciting lessons and open doorways to learning. Discovery Education Espresso pairs real-world content with tools and resources that build teacher capacity and confidence so you can create the best experiences for your pupils.

With Discovery Education Espresso you have everything you need to create an enriching experience for all pupils.

Discover powerful learning resources

It’s easier than ever to find, save and return to the content you need for your daily lessons. Espresso’s high-quality learning resources are grouped into carefully curated channels focused around curriculum objectives and topics of interest. Once you find a resource for your lesson, you’ll want to save it! Use QuickList to curate resources while planning, when you find something that’s just right, add it to a folder in My content, where you can organise your resources from year to year.

Assign and share content with pupils

New interactive tools help you engage pupils with our content by using it in creative ways. Once you find a resource, assign it directly to pupils with context and instructions to guide them along, or create a video quiz with questions embedded directly into the video timeline. Pupils can easily access everything right from their own My DE homepage. Plus, every resource in Discovery Education is also made for sharing! Use the unique URL to share via your LMS, email or other online location.

Save time with ready-to-use activities

Just like the name suggests, ready-to-use activities mean you can spend more time teaching your pupils. Use for quick assignments or customise in Studio to fit the needs of your pupils and your classroom. Easily find these activities throughout our content channels and in dedicated collections like the Calendar picks or Game zone channels.

Check in with pupils daily using Quiz

Who doesn’t love a good quiz? We’re not talking about a list of questions on a piece of paper – we’re talking about engaging, multimedia, get-those-wheels-turning quizzes. Our brand-new Quiz tool gives you intuitive ways to promote active learning every day and track pupil progress in real-time. Choose from a range of question formats, embedded video questions to polling, multiple-choice to image annotation. There’s no shortage of ways to accurately measure progress.

Create activities and present with Studio

Studio, our collaboration and presentation tool, serves as your creative outlet for those activities you’ve always wanted to try. And you can rely on Microsoft’s Immersive Reader for literacy and accessibility support. Start with one of our new Activity Templates or design your own lesson activity bringing together Espresso resources with your own content. Pupils can also design their own Studio Boards and Slideshows, giving them an opportunity to share and present their knowledge in creative ways.
