Why need this technology
Technology such as interactive blackboards used to be teaching aids in the classroom, but in recent years it has become the primary mean of connecting students with their teachers for lessons during social distancing, providing self-learning materials to students, and encouraging involvement by enhancing interaction. According to Global Market Insights, as of 2020, the e-learning market was at US$250 billion with an anticipated growth of over 21% from 2021 to 2027. Schools and businesses alike are adopting online learning tools for improving engagement and learning experience. The good news is that there are numerous options of online platforms and tools for creating interactive distance learning and online lesson plans for nearly any subject.
Interactivity, whether it be between peers or between the teacher and students, is crucial to make the learning process more engaging. However, crafting a lesson plan for online lessons and taking full advantage of interactive tools such as games and videos can be daunting. This course can bridge the gap between educators’ comfort zone and the current e-learning trend by providing guidance and hands-on experience on the use of interactive platforms, planning lessons, filming and broadcasting videos and live streaming.
Pain Points We Solved
Educators have been required to make this change from traditional classrooms to online classrooms in a whirlwind in the past years and it had been, for some, a hit-or-miss situation in implementation. Given the technology advancement and the vast application and popularity of e-learning, t is definite that online teaching and learning is going to stay and be further developed in the future.
In this light, it is essential for current and future educators to equip themselves with the skills to conduct effective and interactive lessons online. Through this program, education institutions and their personnel can learn to use and develop interactive learning platforms targeted at their specific preferences and needs. While it may be great to have a standardized platform for all to use, it may not be able to cater for differences amongst subjects, teaching style, student preferences or difficulty levels. Acquiring the skills to design your own online teaching content, filming videos for education purpose, live streaming lessons and establishing online teaching platforms with interactive elements could cater for all your specific needs.
