At bksb, we’re improving our already superior solution to provide an even better experience for our customers.

Interface, design, performance and analytics have all been upgraded with our brand new eLearning platform bksbLIVE 2, and you’ll find an overview of the new features below. The system will include a task-based ePortfolio, work perfectly across all kinds of devices and operating systems, and the brand new integrated reports will make calculating distance travelled and evidencing progress easier and more effective than ever before. What’s more, this fantastic new upgrade won’t cost bksb licence holders a penny – we’re upgrading customers free of charge!

If you’d like to know about the system in more detail, we’ve prepared a list of FAQs (available for download in pdf format) which should explain the finer details of some of the updates. We’re also offering organisations the chance to trial the platform, so you can see for yourself how bksbLIVE 2 could revolutionise your English, maths and ICT provision. You can request your free online trial of bksbLIVE 2 by emailing

Our new and intuitive design makes it obvious what the user needs to do, guiding them through the bksb process to achieve their goals. We’ve used a very clean design that incorporates the brand’s colours and icons to aid navigation and present information in a clear way. The design also lends itself to touchscreen technology, making bksb even more accessible than ever before on tablets and mobile devices.
