Engaging Course and Professional Development Content
The partnership with VEO has allowed OUP Turkey to give teachers and school management access to clear and convenient support for discussing best teaching practices alongside its learning materials.
Videos produced by OUP specialists are easily accessible through VEO, helping teachers to understand and discuss how to teach in a more effective way.
The comments and notes sections on the platform are really useful as it allows us to check certain feedback about a particular activity or task.

Video feedback is an extremely effective way to build a learner’s speaking skills. Through recording themselves practising, students get a clear view of how they speak and where they can improve.
