Learning Management Systems

Description

Learning Management Systems (LMS) consist in a software application for administration, documentation, tracking and delivery of educational courses online. In Up2U we are using Moodle, an open source platform that lets you build the perfect education solution for your needs. Moodle is a modular system based on plugins. The software offers a rich environment with plugins for different kinds of content and collaborative activities.

Moodle enables to create direct learning paths adapted to each different class or discipline, encourage collaboration between students, allows to embed easily external resources, multimedia integration, group management, marking workflows, peer and self-assessment, integrated badges, and other features. All the information placed in Moodle is secure and respects the privacy of its users.

These materials can then be used inside and outside of the classroom environment to support teaching and learning activities.

These repositories are rich open spaces to access digital content and enable the ability to retain, reuse, revise remix and redistribute OER(Open Educational Resources) that are available to use under CC(Creative Commons) licenses.

Learning Analytics

Description

Up2U will provide several tools to help teachers and educators to process, analyze, measure and collect data about learners and learning activities with the aim of improving teaching and learning practices.

Learning analytics is a new field enabled, by the advance of big data and data visualisation software. These tools can be used for analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, curriculum mapping, personalising the learner experience, predicting behaviour and designing learning paths. The main goals are related with the optimization of learning environments and a better understanding of the learning process.   

Social Interactions

Description

Online social interactions grow at a great pace in formal and informal spaces and can be used as an educational tool to capture students attention and participation. At Up2U, we offer new ways to engage students in learning communities, using co-learning and e-mentoring, which may be essential to achieve better school outcomes in the future.

Social interactions may improve students learning experience by enhancing their knowledge of literacy and teaching and their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Also, creates a positive classroom environment and establish a community of learners who support each other (Bromley, 2008), increasing social interactions inside and outside of the classroom.

Our main development will be a flexible, integrated application toolbox supporting student-driven, personalized, dynamic, interactive, rich multimedia learning path creation with social sharing and interactions (project based and peer-to-peer learning and assessment) on top of a public and private cloud-based service infrastructure.
