Gain valuable insights with digital learning systems

Teachers have to evaluate the skill and knowledge of their students. On the high school level, this has traditionally been done by taking into account classroom engagement, assignments and testing.

This can work well, but there are two problems: 1) It is often unknown if the students engage with the learning material or do the homework, and 2) if a student is discovered to do poorly in a test, it is often too late to change it. Having an online learning system can help solve both of these problems.

Real-time

An added benefit of having learning material online is real-time tracking. This allows the teacher to see whether or not the students are engaging with the learning material. It also allows the teacher to see clearly if a student is falling behind, or simply not doing their work. Real-time means no delay, so the teacher can always take action if necessary.

Engagement

Performance and knowledge are generally measured well by tests and assignments. On the high-school level, the teacher is also required to give out continuous assessment marks. These are often based, at least in part, on the activity of the student in class. This is a very crude indicator however, as many students are often not participating as much as they should.

An online learning system solves these problems easily. On a day-to-day level, the teacher can easily insert small quizzes in each lesson to test the knowledge of the students.

On a higher level, the teacher always has access to more general information, such as the time the student has spent on each lesson, the progress or the performance on quizzes and assignments.
