Instructor

A learning tool that students and lecturers use in order to facilitate their learning experience.

We’ve taken the learning experience, from a lecturer and student viewpoint and developed the ultimate tool to make a seamless, easy, interactive and solution-based learning platform.

For the lecturer

We know that not every teacher uses the same methods and that teaching is specialised, so we’ve taken this into account. Instructor is the place where the lecturer builds the course material. Lecture notes, announcements, readings, video lectures, PowerPoint slides, references, you name it.

Because we’ve moved into the realm of ‘blended’ instruction, our platform provides methods to bring this into your teaching. We’ve included options of real- time chat rooms, discussion forums, blogs, all in order to elicit participation outside of lecture halls.

The tool also allows you to personally manage your workload, allowing you to measure and manage the pace at which you would like to work, by providing task lists and deadlines. We’ve also included a student register, which not only fills you in on student numbers and attendance, but also allows you to communicate via the platform or by e-mail. But we didn’t stop there; lecturers or administrators can see announcement engagement – who has viewed the communication and when – instilling student accountability.

For the student

It’s a brave new world out there, one that has shifted how we do things exponentially; and learning is no exception. Our Instructor platform has evolved into a ‘have-to-have’ tool for students. By providing interaction, information, chat rooms, discussion forums, digital course management, student records (and the list goes on) students receive the absolute best in digital management platforms.

A great starting point on our student portal is the tour class directory feature. Here students can get to know their fellow members, see who’s in class with them and stay in touch via information they have provided, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, LinkedIn.

Electronic course management, course material – well, literally everything and anything a student needs to get through with flying colours. Our platform offers students not only a place to get through the myriad of tasks, but to also chat about them, compare notes, submit assignments and tests, view and evaluate their progress, be inspired by others or be reminded of socials or deadlines. Our system can integrate with building management systems, accounting management tools, social streams: there is nothing that we haven’t thought of. Our goal is to make certain that your student receives the most out of their learning experience, in an easy- to-use and enjoyable manner.
