We've released MYLO and you can access it at http://mylo.dcsf.gov.uk. There are modules available in French, German, Spanish and Mandarin. MYLO is free and you don't need to register to use MYLO and all of the content is available on open access. However if you do wish to register you will be able to save your work and personalise your use of MYLO. Anyone can register as a learner, but UK schools can create special accounts that allow them to create groups of their pupils so they can work together and get feedback from their teacher or peers. Our eGuide provides lots of information about registering and getting started. If you are a teacher please click here for an overview for teachers.
Over 600 schools have pre-registered with MYLO. We're now processing pre-registered schools and a form for your Head Teacher to sign will be with you shortly. Why do we send a form for signing? Schools can create groups to allow their pupils to work together. This is the only way two learners can work together and so to make sure our learners are safe online we write directly to schools.
We're looking for teachers to get involved in trialling new content
We're looking for schools to get involved in the rollout of MYLO by providing feedback on our new challenges when they are ready. This will involve completing a survey about the challenge. If you'd like to get involved in this process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org once your school is activated.
