Important updates on FolensHIVE

Last February, we began the rollout of our new learning platform, FolensHIVE, to replace FolensOnline, which had reached end-of-life. Unfortunately, Covid-19 prevented us from having a smoother transition from one platform to the other.

We welcome all the feedback that we have received from teachers across the country and are delighted to say we have a number of positive updates to share. You may need to clear your cache first to see these changes. Here's a handy article if you need help. 

  • We have improved the zoom feature of our eBooks - you will now be able to increase the size of text significantly and use other eBook functionality at the same time.
  • We are working on simplifying the process for downloading files, here is an easy step-by-step guide.
  • When playing listening comprehensions, you can minimise the audio-player so that it no longer blocks tex. Here's a handy article that explains more.
  • We have extended the login window to 2 hours, which reduces the need to re-enter your password.

As we look ahead the great news for all our platform users is that FolensHIVE will bring continuous enhancements to user experience over time. In fact we will be launching a Teacher App in February 2021. If you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Parents & Students - Accessing our eBooks & Digital Resources

We have developed digital activities, eBooks, printouts and other resources for Primary teachers to use alongside the Folens books they have booklisted to use in the classroom. Teachers get automatic access to these digital resources when they register on FolensOnline.
