Welcome to ESS

Here we give an introduction to ESS and welcome you to the rich range of ideas, guidance and activities available on this site. We have an introductory video and ideas about how to use the site. 

Presentation Mode 

If you want to present an idea from the website to your class or introduce an idea or play some of the multimedia, it's a good idea to use the presentation mode. This is a really neat way to make your presentation slick and fill the who screen without the side bars or menus.
