In the global attempt to close the era of the digital divide, the build-up of economic advantage through education is becoming an increasingly prominent topic on Governments' agendas. The need to revolutionise the way transfer of knowledge occurs is becoming even stronger as technology in education continues to pave the way towards the creation of learning communities.
A successful, dynamic learning climate is made possible through a project-based eLearning approach, which engages the learner and works towards the development of soft skills like collaboration, leadership and problem-solving. In our attempt to contribute towards securing a better tomorrow for our children, we thrive to deliver sustainable means that contribute towards extended holistic education and accessibility to technology.
ICT can be integrated throughout the educational framework in the formative years of children’s preparation, during vocational and professional training and in life-long independent learning. An eLearning software solution would help schools to act as centres of excellence, whereby teachers, students and parents world-wide would start enjoying the benefits of new teaching and learning technologies.
Specifically designed to meet the learners’ skills and capabilities, an eLearning software solution is aimed at providing new methods of teaching to suit the knowledge-based economies of tomorrow. Based upon LP+ powerful, flexible, future-proof and scalable internet-based eLearning platform, such an eLearning solution fully supports effective teaching and engaged learning that simplifies knowledge management, collaborative working, document management and improved communications:
Personalised, Student-Centred Experience
With individual just-in-time access to learning resources, each learner would have his/her own ePortfolio and eLearning tools to manage his/her individual learning plans. Each learner would be able to easily access a schedule of work assigned by his/her teacher, control his/her task list and review any recent published announcements by the school administration..
Adapting to Different Educational Levels
The eLearning services platform, based on Microsoft technologies, is designed for schools and other education institutions of any type, size and nature. The portal is adapted for three different educational levels:
1. LP+ Steps - Designed for early age learners and is focused upon activity based learning, complete with a lively and engaging graphical interface.
2. LP+ Safari - Enables a full range of eLearning platform tools that, through a fun-to-use graphical interface, foster a sense of adventure amongst primary school children who are at the early stages of their learning journey.
3. LP+ Symphony – Equipped with all the features necessary for secondary education, the portal promotes improvement of attendance, attainment, punctuality and working cultures.
Extending Collaboration to the Wider Community
The eLearning tools for collaboration and networking, available within any particular school, will help drive learner-learner, teacher-learner and teacher-teacher communication to another level, enabling group and whole-class eLearning with content and document management tools. In addition, the eLearning platform enables the extention of this collaboration framework to yet another level, whereby multiple institutions would be able to communicate, collaborate and share best practice. This is enabled through LP+ Synergy, which is a top-level community site that contains cross-school, centrally provided, information and resources and inter-school collaboration areas.
Actively Involving Parents Within the Learning Cycle
Parental engagements within their child's learning cycle enable parents with greater insight into their child's learning progress, with access to a parental information site displaying online reporting about the child's attendance, grades, timetable, activity planner, assignment lists and due dates.
Securing a Reliable Online Learning Platform
With authenticated sites for students, staff and parents, eLearning services provide end users with secure and reliable online communication tools including integrated email, messaging and shared/personal workspaces.
With the implementation of a dynamic, safe, effective and diverse eLearning system that is supportive of education-focused outcomes, teacher development and school adoption strategies, educational institutions would be fostering sustainable means that effectively contribute towards successful online learning climates.
