We are committed to bring classroom experience to you.


Listed are some of the Products and Services offered by the platform.

Quiz

The quiz activity enables a teacher to create quizzes comprising questions of various types, including multiple choice, matching, short-answer and numerical.
The teacher can allow the quiz to be attempted multiple times, with the questions shuffled or randomly selected from the question bank. A time limit may be set.

Each attempt is marked automatically, with the exception of essay questions, and the grade is recorded in the gradebook.

The teacher can choose when and if hints, feedback and correct answers are shown to students.

Quizzes may be used

* As course exams

* As mini tests for reading assignments or at the end of a topic

* As exam practice using questions from past exams

* To deliver immediate feedback about performance

* For self-assessment



Books

The book module enables a teacher to create a multi-page resource in a book-like format, with chapters and subchapters. Books can contain media files as well as text and are useful for displaying lengthy passages of information which can be broken down into sections.

A book may be used

* To display reading material for individual modules of study

* As a staff departmental handbook

* As a showcase portfolio of student work



Lessons

The lesson activity module enables a teacher to deliver content and/or practice activities in interesting and flexible ways. A teacher can use the lesson to create a linear set of content pages or instructional activities that offer a variety of paths or options for the learner. In either case, teachers can choose to increase engagement and ensure understanding by including a variety of questions, such as multiple choice, matching and short answer. Depending on the student's choice of answer and how the teacher develops the lesson, students may progress to the next page, be taken back to a previous page or redirected down a different path entirely.

A lesson may be graded, with the grade recorded in the gradebook.

Lessons may be used

* For self-directed learning of a new topic

* For scenarios or simulations/decision-making exercises

* For differentiated revision, with different sets of revision questions depending upon answers given to initial questions




Video and Audio lessons

Videos and audios are used as an instructional tools in delivering a lesson. They van also be used as a tool for assessing conceptualisation through their use in a variety of questions, such as multiple choice, matching and short answer.



Glossary

The glossary activity module enables participants to create and maintain a list of definitions, like a dictionary, or to collect and organise resources or information.

A teacher can allow files to be attached to glossary entries. Attached images are displayed in the entry. Entries can be searched or browsed alphabetically or by category, date or author. Entries can be approved by default or require approval by a teacher before they are viewable by everyone.

If the glossary auto-linking filter is enabled, entries will be automatically linked where the concept words and/or phrases appear within the course.

A teacher can allow comments on entries. Entries can also be rated by teachers or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a final grade which is recorded in the gradebook.

Glossaries have many uses, such as

* A collaborative bank of key terms

* A ‘getting to know you’ space where new students add their name and personal details

* A ‘handy tips’ resource of best practice in a practical subject

* A sharing area of useful videos, images or sound files

* A revision resource of facts to remember



SCORM

Learning content is usually displayed over several pages, with navigation between the pages. There are various options for displaying content in a pop-up window, with a table of contents, with navigation buttons etc. SCORM activities generally include questions, with grades being recorded in the gradebook.

SCORM activities may be used

* For presenting multimedia content and animations

* As an assessment tool



URL

The URL provides a web link as a course resource. Anything that is freely available online, such as documents or images, can be linked to; the URL doesn’t have to be the home page of a website. The URL of a particular web page may be copied and pasted or a teacher can use the file picker and choose a link from a repository such as Flickr, YouTube or Wikimedia (depending upon which repositories are enabled for the site).

There are a number of display options for the URL, such as embedded or opening in a new window and advanced options for passing information, such as a student's name, to the URL if required.

Note that URLs can also be added to any other resource or activity type through the text editor.



Assignments

The assignment activity module enables a teacher to communicate tasks, collect work and provide grades and feedback.

Students can submit any digital content (files), such as word-processed documents, spreadsheets, images, or audio and video clips. Alternatively, or in addition, the assignment may require students to type text directly into the text editor. An assignment can also be used to remind students of 'real-world' assignments they need to complete offline, such as art work, and thus not require any digital content. Students can submit work individually or as a member of a group.

When reviewing assignments, teachers can leave feedback comments and upload files, such as marked-up student submissions, documents with comments or spoken audio feedback. Assignments can be graded using a numerical or custom scale or an advanced grading method such as a rubric. Final grades are recorded in the gradebook.

There are also collaborative learning tools on the platform among them



Chat groups

The chat activity module enables participants to have text-based, real-time synchronous discussions.

The chat may be a one-time activity or it may be repeated at the same time each day or each week. Chat sessions are saved and can be made available for everyone to view or restricted to users with the capability to view chat session logs.

Chats are especially useful when the group chatting is not able to meet face-to-face, such as

* Regular meetings of students participating in online courses to enable them to share experiences with others in the same course but in a different location

* A student temporarily unable to attend in person chatting with their teacher to catch up with work

* Students out on work experience getting together to discuss their experiences with each other and their teacher

* Younger children using chat at home in the evenings as a controlled (monitored) introduction to the world of social networking

* A question and answer session with an invited speaker in a different location

* Sessions to help students prepare for tests where the teacher, or other students, would pose sample questions



Forum

The forum activity module enables participants to have asynchronous discussions i.e. discussions that take place over an extended period of time.

There are several forum types to choose from, such as a standard forum where anyone can start a new discussion at any time; a forum where each student can post exactly one discussion; or a question and answer forum where students must first post before being able to view other students' posts. A teacher can allow files to be attached to forum posts. Attached images are displayed in the forum post.

Participants can subscribe to a forum to receive notifications of new forum posts. A teacher can set the subscription mode to optional, forced or auto, or prevent subscription completely. If required, students can be blocked from posting more than a given number of posts in a given time period; this can prevent individuals from dominating discussions.

Forum posts can be rated by teachers or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a final grade which is recorded in the gradebook.

Forums have many uses, such as

* A social space for students to get to know each other

* For course announcements (using a news forum with forced subscription)

* For discussing course content or reading materials

* For continuing online an issue raised previously in a face-to-face session

* For teacher-only discussions (using a hidden forum)

* A help centre where tutors and students can give advice

* A one-on-one support area for private student-teacher communications (using a forum with separate groups and with one student per group)

* For extension activities, for example ‘brain teasers’ for students to ponder and suggest solutions to.



Feedback

The feedback activity module enables a teacher to create a custom survey for collecting feedback from participants using a variety of question types including multiple choice, yes/no or text input.

Feedback responses may be anonymous if desired, and results may be shown to all participants or restricted to teachers only. Any feedback activities on the site front page may also be completed by non-logged-in users.

Feedback activities may be used

* For course evaluations, helping improve the content for later participants

* To enable participants to sign up for course modules, events etc.

* For guest surveys of course choices, school policies etc.

* For anti-bullying surveys in which students can report incidents anonymously



Wiki

The wiki activity module enables participants to add and edit a collection of web pages. A wiki can be collaborative, with everyone being able to edit it, or individual, where everyone has their own wiki which only they can edit.

A history of previous versions of each page in the wiki is kept, listing the edits made by each participant.

Wikis have many uses, such as

* For group lecture notes or study guides

* For members of a faculty to plan a scheme of work or meeting agenda together

* For students to collaboratively author an online book, creating content on a topic set by their tutor

* For collaborative storytelling or poetry creation, where each participant writes a line or verse

* As a personal journal for examination notes or revision (using an individual wiki)


The above are some and not all of the features used by the platform to facilitate learning. There are many other features not mentioned and the developers will continue to widen the features in line with 21st century pedagogy.
