E-learning has shown significant growth over the last decade, as the internet and education combine to provide people with the opportunity to gain new skills even when they are far away from the teachers. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, online learning has become more centric in people’s lives. The pandemic has forced schools, universities, and companies to remote working and this booms the usage of online learning.
The global E-Learning market is expected to quadruple in size from around $250 billion in 2020 to $1 trillion in 2027, demanding more educational technology as well as flexibility and accessibility.
An educational platform is an integrated set of interactive online services that provides the teachers, learners, parents information, tools, and resources to support and enhance educational delivery and management.
More and more educational organizations are coming to rely on educational platforms such as learning management systems (LMS) or learning content management systems (LCMS).
A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting, automation, and delivery of educational courses, training programs, or learning and development programs. According to Educause 2020, 77% of higher education faculty strongly agree that the LMS is critical to their teaching. 73% believe the LMS is a critical tool to enhance student learning.
A Learning Content Management System (LCMS) is a platform that integrates authoring, delivery, publishing, and analysis of content in a multi-user environment.
The E-learning platforms allow us to take the definitive step from paper to digital. In this way, not only will you be helping to save the planet, but you will significantly reduce the evaluation times of each of the students. The platform is responsible for evaluating each of the questions at the end of the test.
The use of LMS or educational platforms to create, manage and carry out educational and training programs saves businesses hours of time when compared to traditional methods. LMS allows the organization, level of automation, and programming in line with the needs of the learners and employees. The use of online classrooms reduces costs most of all in businesses where on many occasions employees have needed to travel for training sessions and stay in hotels etc. Thanks to LMS, businesses and educational institutions save on costs which they can then allocate to other resources. Online classrooms allow the simultaneous training of people studying from different geographical locations, and these courses can then be used again and again with new groups of learners.
Contrary to what many may think, in E-learning the student is never alone. How do they get it? Through the virtual platforms they can contact the tutor at any time, and also the tutor can keep track of the student’s activity: participation in forums, activity on the platform, when connected, evaluation of the degree of satisfaction of the course…
No more books. The world is constantly updated and what is valid today may no longer be valid tomorrow. In this sense, the training content used in the e-learning platforms can be modified and updated on the spot, without having to incur printing costs, just by a few clicks.
The most advanced platforms incorporate content creation tools into their courses. So you can create both activities and exercises as tests and evaluations of the knowledge acquired. This allows for greater flexibility and customization of the training.
Managing time to study and staying motivated is a great challenge for everyone when it comes to learning. E-learning allows all efforts to be concentrated on creating the best possible learning experience, where it becomes more of a pleasant experience than a task.
Thanks to its flexibility, students can create personalized study routines that adapt to their schedules and circumstances.
The student, always under the teacher’s guidelines, is the one who decides when to study when to download the program… The student has 24-hour access and only needs to have an Internet connection to access the course content, contact the tutors or take the exams.
Reports from educational platforms allow you to monitor which centers, subjects, or teachers achieve the best pass rate, allowing you to analyze the context and use them as models to replicate them in the rest of your educational entity.
We, with the engagement team, composed of a project manager, together work with our clients on steps in every single aspect of the projects. Then we kick off the partnership with our client with the free consultation session organized as a workshop to validate and strengthen the product feasibility to the market.
Choosing the right and latest web application development technologies for your project is an important step to ensure the ultimate success of your product or service. With educational platforms, we tend to use NodeJS programming language for the back-end because of its great speed, performance, and scalability; ReactJS programming language for the Front-end because of its intuition and flexibility. Besides, Mongodb and GIT are implemented in our projects, which propose cutting-edge solutions and all for bringing out the best outputs.
