Create classes and educational content on Edaptio
Digitalisation of education has brought new possibilities and ways of teaching and learning. If used correctly, these tools can improve the learning experience significantly, and increase student performance.
Classes are a collection of students and teachers that holds all of the educational content along with a wide variety of apps for learning content and student-teacher interactions. All customisable to suit the needs and preferred methods of the teacher.
Building online content happens on three distinct levels in Edaptio.
- Learning elements/learning activities
These three levels can be compared to a book.
A course is comparable to a chapter
A Lesson is comparable to a section
And leaning elements are then all of the text, images, links, questions and fact boxes.
Edaptio includes a broad suite of 'learning elements' that can facilitate different activities and methods in class.
Read below which kind of elements we currently support in Edaptio.
Basic elements: Text, Images, Videos
Edaptio naturally includes the central elements of learning in text, images and videos.
Videos can be seamlessly embedded from streaming sites such as YouTube and Vimeo, or uploaded to our own central file storage.
Our native file uploader has integrations to every single file storage provider you can imagine. From Google drive, OneDrive, OneDrive for business and Box to social providers like Instagram and Facebook. You choose who you connect to, and you instantly have all of your files available for upload to Edaptio.
Assignments are a core part of any classroom, and at Edaptio, we are working to take this to the next level.
You can seamlessly grade the assignments directly in the browser, without up- and download, and we support a lot of different assignment types, like video and audio assignments. Students and teachers can even record video and audio directly in the browser or from their smartphones.
Edaptio has its own unique quiz functionality. It supports 10 different question types including multiple choice, free text answer, spelling, match, categorisation, drag-and-drop on image and fill-in-the-blank.
Especially more interactive question types such as drag-and-drop on image is a popular way to engage the students more, and test their understanding in a different way.
It can be used in everything from physics to arts.
Flashcards is a popular method of memorisation. It can be used effectively for reviewing lessons learned and can e.g. be combined with spaced repetition techniques.
It can also be used to introduce new words/terms before or after a text to give context to the students.
Edaptio includes questionnaire functionality. This makes is easy to add both evaluations and polls directly inside lessons and engage the students. You can have questions that are both checkboxes, radio buttons and text answers. All data is anonymised even though you can see and play with the data.
The 'timeline' learning element in Edaptio allows you to create a custom timeline and display historical information.
This element is a nice visual representation of timeline data to quickly gain an overview of the information and when it did happen. We see everything from history teachers to religion, physics and chemistry teachers use this element to apply a good visual touch and a quick overview.
You can embed any type of file as a learning element, and at Edaptio, we have even developed a technology that makes it possible to embed almost any file type.You can easily embed powerpoint or word documents for you students to scroll through online, or download the original. This gives the students a much better learning experience, by having all the content in one place.
Geogebra is an interactive geometry, algebra and statistics application, that can teach mathematics and science in an interactive and intuitive way. Edaptio includes a learning element for embedding Geogebra directly in a lesson.
Edaptio always allows for you to pull in content from other places to support your elements created in Edaptio. The external link learning element allows you to create a link to some external material, and then choose between a normal hyperlink, to open in a dialog or to be completely embedded. If you choose to use dialog or embed, the content lives inside Edaptio, and the students don't even have to leave the learning element to interact with/consume the content.
At Edaptio, user-centric development is always a core priority. We are constantly adding more learning activities and tools based on the feedback and recommendations of our users. In the future, learning will be even more interactive and more diverse.
