Learnics is a platform that allows teachers to design, deliver, capture, analyze and assess online learning experiences.
Learnics provides tools that allows teachers to gain critical information about student online learning behaviors. These insights allow teachers hold students accountable, identify students in need of support and improve the design of their lessons. With Learnics tools, teachers can answer these basic questions about the online learning experiences that they are creating.
1. How long is it taking for students to complete the work?
2. Are the students accessing the prescribed websites, podcasts, and videos?
3. Do students know how to complete independent online research and if so, what resources are they using?
4. How are students finding and using new content online?
5. How can I hold students accountable for their virtual presence during online learning?
The goal of Learnics is to support, improve, and transform student online learning experiences. Whether the instruction is virtual, hybrid, flipped, or blended, the Learnics Insight Link (Learnicsᴵᴸ) provides teachers with feedback to support the online learning process.
Learnics Insight Link, or Learnicsᴵᴸ, is a free Google Chrome Extension that allows students to capture and submit a record of their online learning experience as part of an assignment, making the process as important as the final product.
Learnicsᴵᴸ also offers teachers an opportunity to learn more about what students are doing as they complete learning activities online. Through the Learnics Teacher Dashboard, teachers can view the online experience conducted by each student as they completed online assignments and see the results of the entire class as well. Through the dashboard teachers can design and deliver new learning experiences to students and analyze completed assignments.
Learnicsᴵᴸ makes it simple not only to see how your class leveraged the internet to complete a project, but you can also gather insights on each individual learner in your classroom.
You create classes and assignments which your learners use to log their online research activities via Chrome extension. Each step a learner takes in completing a research project is collected, making the process as important as the product.
