The founder of the company, Leona Moran, is a teacher at Ballinode College in Sligo. Her interest in exploring more creative teaching methods led to her setting up the business which she sees as a reliable and safe grinds solution for students.
"I set up Eduflix this year to enable me to begin developing a series of animated videos to bring the curriculum to life for the students," she said.
"My own experience of using it in the classroom has been very positive. The motivation it provides students enables them to really raise the bar of their expectations and improves how they perceive their own ability.”
