Making Remote Learning A Success

COVID-19 has created a sudden and dramatic shift in the way we live, the way we work, and the way we learn. The pandemic has reshaped how education is being imparted, delivered, and facilitated. In just a blink of an eye, institutions have had to transition from a physical to a digital learning environment. Either they rethink, or become extinct. And the only way to move forward is to embrace remote learning successfully. Our webinar titled ‘Making Remote Learning A Success’ sought to understand exactly how schools, universities and colleges adopted this change. It brought about many interesting perspectives that we have summarised into an easy read!. The discussion was led by expert panellists including: AR Swami, Co-founder and CEO of Camu Chester Catilago, Director of Centre for Education Innovation at Teachers College, Manila, and Dr. Aditya Sharma, Registrar of Teerthanker Mahaveer University Selecting the right vendor There is a dearth of technology out there. The market is saturated with smart, agile EdTech solutions. Platforms, tools, resources, systems, databases, features, tabs – it’s all too complex to process. LMS, SIS, ERP, STEM… the list goes on! But which one is the right one for your institution? Which one will smoothly align to your institution’s goals and objectives? Which one will satisfy all your stakeholder criteria? Remote learning can only take off if you have the right strategy in place and pick the right technology partner to assist you. One wrong decision on your part and your institute is at risk of losing time, money, resources, energy and morale. Webinar Tip: Define your objectives clearly and build a strategy around it. Select a vendor that will help you facilitate this strategy seamlessly.  Recruiting and retaining talent Technology is only a means to an end. Having the right tools in place doesn’t necessarily equate to higher productivity nor good performance, especially if the users are unable to navigate the system well. Which is why it’s imperative to nurture, motivate and incentivise human resources, so that they have a better chance of onboarding and integrating into the online space. Teachers must be digitally literate. They must be proficient and skilled enough to build curriculums, schedule classes, deliver lectures, conduct assessments, provide feedback, and more. Moreover, they must be able to gauge student requirements and keep them engaged. Webinar Tip: Organise a separate product demo for teachers. Let them identify any discrepancies within the system, so that it may be rectified before students are added to the mix. Putting student needs at the forefront Since the student and teacher are separated by distance and often time (cannot meet as in a traditional classroom setting), remote learning needs to be all the more impactful. Of course, compared to on-campus classes, it is challenging to engage students in meaningful activities in the online space. However, the key is to keep building opportunities for student-to-content interaction through a flipped classroom approach. Students can prepare for the course by completing readings before attending class. This takes care of the “remember” and “understand” domains of Bloom’s Taxonomy. During class, students may “apply” their knowledge towards debates and discussions. Finally, assessments will help stimulate the “analyse”, “evaluate” and “create” domains. Primary, secondary or higher education – students come in with their own degree of knowledge, experience, and prior understanding. Institutions must, therefore, design content that meets their expectations. Webinar Tip: Build curriculum and lesson plans that imbibe in students the right combination of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills, so that they may achieve desired outcomes. Aligning academic, administrative and leadership functions Effective remote learning is not only about ensuring student-teacher efficacy; there are many other departments, higher and lower level, that must work together in sync, to create cross-departmental cohesion. Front and back-office functions must befriend each other. In particular, the administrative department must be able to cope with the transition from physical to digital. Digitisation can prove to be a very complex process with regards to data collection and record keeping. Hence, there needs to be adequate training and support given to all parties. When it comes to making important decisions, senior management should look into building effective, two-way communication channels between the top and bottom. If leadership aligns itself to the needs of all stakeholders, the institution will be better equipped to embrace the change. Webinar Tip: Make sure there is synergy between faculty and management. A flatter hierarchy leads to quicker decision-making! Remember, technology is always changing, even as you read this blog. Staying relevant and up-to-date is the need of the hour. More so, making sure that stakeholders are using the right tools, at the right time, in an intended manner, is sacrosanct.

Rethinking Education in The Age of Digitisation and Disruption

The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled institutions to reorient themselves or risk becoming obsolete. From crisis management, to constructive thinking, and problem-solving innovations, this past year has witnessed a dramatic change in the educational landscape and climate. Even before the crisis, the education industry was hinging towards deep technology integration. And for the first time, academicians are driving tech companies to create products that can actually be used! Colleges and universities are confronted every day with growing expectations from students across a variety of disciplines. Therefore, technology as a skillset is part of the learning and instructional experience. Our webinar titled ‘Rethinking Education in The Age of Digitisation and Disruption” touched upon the key phases of digital transformation. The discussion was helmed by expert panellists including: AR Swami, Co-founder and CEO of Camu Dr. Bala V Balachandran, J L Kellogg Distinguished Professor of Accounting and Information Management, Northwestern University, USA, Founder, Chairman & Dean (Emeritus), Great Lakes Institute of Management Vinay Chousalkar, Business Development Lead, Education, AISPL Dr Preeti Bajaj, Vice Chancellor, Galgotias University, Educational Activity Chair, IEEE R-10 (Asia Pacific) Their valuable insights can be summarised by the following phases. 1. Adoption of technology Technology used to be a support function; a mere tool leveraged to augment/ complement learning. The traditional, brick and mortar, set up was the primary function, with faculty and management steering the wheel. Today, tech has become the enabler, the facilitator, the one-stop-shop to pedagogy. Thanks to deep transformation, institutions have moved from a physical to a virtual environment in just a few short months. The key to successful implementation lies in the efficient onboarding of students and teachers, which directly relates to the vendor or EdTech partner in question. The simpler the platform, the smoother the induction. But remember, not all individuals adopt innovation at the same rate or pace. Seamless integration also depends upon the classroom model. While certain aspects are fully automated, other aspects require physical, human presence. This is where the concept of blended learning comes in. Online educational materials are combined with traditional place-based classroom methods to create a stimulating learning experience for all. One type of blended learning technique that reaps the best outcomes is the flipped classroom approach. In this scenario, students’ complete readings before class, and work on live problem-solving during class… 2. Consolidation of processes A lot goes into the building of a truly holistic digital ecosystem, one of the most important criteria being operational efficiency. It is the lifeblood of an institution. Departments, functions, tasks and activities must align to create synergy.   Administration must support academics, and vice versa. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERP), and other feats of Data Science must be used in the right manner to fulfil the desired objectives. Similarly, there must be cohesion within curriculums too! Outcome Based Education (OBE) lays out definitive course and programme objectives in this regard, pushing students to take actions towards accomplishing goals for the future. Multidisciplinary Learning integrates multiple knowledge domains, crossing the boundaries of subjects and/or curriculums in order to enhance the learner’s scope and depth of understanding. 3. Mobilisation of stakeholders In the era of Cloud Technology, Robotics, Block-based Coding Systems, Virtual Reality, and more, the need for stakeholder cooperation is more important than ever. The management-to-faculty and faculty-to-student ratios must be well-balanced. The organisational structure must be more democratic, and less bureaucratic. Two-way communication channels must be fostered. Decision making should involve those who are actively involved in the change. Of course, there will be numerous obstacles along the way, from infrastructure development to software navigation. However, the right tool, in the hands of the right person, at the right time, is nothing short of magic! Here’s where good, empathetic, transparent leadership comes in. What are your thoughts on the aforementioned phases? As an end to this blog, we leave you with a quote from Dr. Bala. “Uncertainties are inevitable, worrying is optional, panicking is pathetic, planning is paramount!”

Learning Management System (LMS) Guide

What is a Learning Management System (LMS)? A Learning Management System (LMS), in the simplest words, is a cloud-based software application for the documentation, administration, tracking, reporting, automation and delivery, used in many industries. One of the most prominent industries, LMS, is prevalent in the education industry. A Learning Management System can help deliver educational courses, training programs, and learning and development programs. So, what is LMS? LMS finds its origins in the concept of e-learning, and the first LMS’ inception dates to the 1990s. The technology utilises a form of artificial intelligence to identify gaps in learning and training, deciphering, and understanding analytical data, and reporting said data and findings. With advances in technology, modern Learning Management Systems can now recommend courses and training programs based on a person’s skill profile and history. Additionally, LMS software can read meta-data extensively to learn more, adapt, and make its recommendations more accurate. The Definition of Learning Management Systems How does LMS work? Years of innovation and thought have gone into creating state-of-the-art Learning Management Systems. A platform for digital learning, LMS’ key features can be learnt through its abbreviation itself. The ‘L’ stands for ‘learning.’ In the education sector, an LMS can be used to create a single source of online courses and study of training materials. This can be accessed by students, teachers, and administration alike, whenever and from anywhere in the world. The ‘M’ stands for ‘management.’ A teacher or any user in general can easily manage courses, course material, timetables, and students taking the course. Learning Management Systems for schools can help increase efficiency and productivity. In the corporate sector, an LMS can be used to welcome new trainees and employees, and track their progression. An LMS can be used as a to-do app as it has an intuitive calendar that can guide you with regards to when you have free time. The ‘S’ stands for ‘system.’ Self-explanatory, an LMS runs on a computer system. It is one of the most advanced technological innovations that can make mundane tasks like grading, organising papers, processing statistics, and filing reports more fun and quick. In short, an LMS is equivalent to having your own online university. In a corporate setting, you can train your employees and trainees without leaving the office! There is a plethora of tasks an LMS can quickly achieve. The latest Learning Management Systems come equipped with advanced artificial intelligence that can easily understand, break down, and adapt to each individual’s traits, personality, and learning behaviour. The internal software in all LMS systems changes constantly as the software learns to adapt and change accordingly. Who Uses an LMS? Cloud-based Learning Management Systems are used around the world by both the education and commercial sectors. The software is growing at such an exponential rate that in 2020, the global LMS market was predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 24% annually. Most higher education institutions now employ the use of Learning Management Systems, and so do corporate businesses. Cloud-based LMS is used by the following. Administrators, Employers, Teachers: The first category includes those who manage the LMS software in their company, school, or college. Teachers, professors, and employers must learn how to manage the software and keep it updated. Additionally, this group oversees course and content management, creates training courses, plans and structures, contacts and keeps in touch with third-party providers, hires and assigns subordinates to the right courses, and tracks students’ and employees’ learning outcomes and progression. Learners, Students, Employees, Trainees: The second category comprises those at the receiving end of Learning Management Systems. A company’s or an education institute’s employees, trainees, students, and learners of all ages are the ones who benefit from the implementation of LMSs. As LMS software learns, adapts, and grows, these systems can also gather feedback from learners and others in the second category, and learn from their contributions. One of the most prominent examples of an LMS is Moodle, which is used by almost every university around the globe. Furthermore, students, learners, and others in the second category can access their course material at any time, complete assigned coursework, receive evaluation and feedback, and examine their progress. Learning Management Systems offer streamlined learning solutions that are beneficial to both aforementioned groups. A key benefit of using a Learning Management software is that it treats every student and employee as equal, and provides feedback on an individual basis. It helps the first group stabilise their relationship with the second group, and helps both groups connect with each other. Uses of LMS The features of LMS are extensive as it is used in almost every sphere of life. As a prominent tool in the corporate sector, the uses of LMS are manyfold as follows. Customer Training: For companies in the information technology sector and sectors which require onboard users to use the products, LMS helps train customers. Onboard and continuous training to customers can also help bring in more users and aid in business growth. Customers appreciate companies that go the extra mile to interact with their consumer base. Partner Training: Like customer training, LMS can help forge better partnerships. Similar to how customers appreciate companies that interact with them, partners will be happy to know that companies are putting in effort to maintain relationships. Member Training: An LMS can create training content and modules to facilitate engagement and build a rapport between co-workers. Employee Training and Development: Another prominent Learning Management System’s feature is that it supports new trainees and employees, and helps integrate them into the existing workplace environment and structure. LMS helps employees learn the ropes quickly, so they waste no time and get to work immediately. Additionally, LMS also helps in the constant development of current employees by aiding them in navigating a learning curve. Employees can learn new skills, sharpen existing skills, and are kept in the loop when product changes occur. General Mandated Training: For any business to be successful and to grow, […]
