Competitive pressures and technology are driving changes across higher education. All students learn differently, and therefore their preferences for accessing learning resources vary too.
Since engaging, inspiring, and motivating students and faculty has become a strategic priority for institutes they are now considering meeting the increasing expectations of a changing student demographic. A high standard of teaching and learning, with the appropriate technologies to support pedagogy, has become a key part of improving the student experience and meeting those needs.
Our company has been involved in developing a digital strategy for student education which set out the institution's expectations for the provision of digital technologies and services for taught students, aimed at enhancing the quality of the student experience.
The focuses was on what Digital E-learning Platform for higher education should look like, and how it could engage, inspire, and motivate both students and faculty.

Early Warning & Intervention

Insight into class participation and other critical evidence of student engagement is paramount to supporting real time, proactive academic intervention.

Classroom Engagement

From large gateway courses to medical school classrooms, engaging students in active learning has been proven to improve outcomes. DEP helps students interact more with content, their instructor and their peers – before, during and after class.

Lecture Capture

Lecture capture is an umbrella term describing any technology that allows instructors to record what happens in their classrooms and make it available digitally.


Pineapple

Flipped Classroom

Flipping the classroom creates more time for applied learning, group work and discussion, and student demonstrations in class in addition to allowing students to review the material 24/7.

Student Response/Polling

Pineapple

Frustrated by the silence and number of blank stares in your classes? Not sure if students are actually understanding the concepts? You’re not alone. Many instructors are using low-stakes testing (or polling) in class to better understand what’s working and what’s not so that they can spend more time on difficult concepts. <

Distance Learning

Extend education beyond the brick and mortar campus to students down the street and around the world.

Screencasting/Personal Capture

Today’s digital natives are consuming and creating short snippets of information throughout the day – usually on video and on mobile devices.

Webcasting/Live Streaming

Extend education beyond the brick and mortar campus to students down the street and around the world.

Multi-Camera, HD Demonstrations

From lab demonstrations to automotive repair to ballroom dancing, sometimes one camera simply doesn’t cut it. DEP offers multi-camera functionality to capture presenter and demonstration – from every angle.

Integrated Classroom

Integrated Classroom

DEP brings everything together in a single, unified view. Whether students are in class, watching a live stream, or reviewing the class video, engagement tools make the learning experience active.

Student Response

With DEP you can embed student response activities into classroom presentations and videos to assess student learning and provoke thoughtful discussions.

Discussion

DEP keeps class discussion linked to relevant instructional content so students make the connections required for active learning.

Contextual Notes

Most students take digital notes, but those notes can be confusing when separated from the class experience.

Confusion Alerts

Students are unlikely to speak up when they are feeling lost, but DEP makes it easy to give simple feedback to the instructor.

Mobile Learning

Students are tied to their mobile devices, so why not put it to use during class? Students can follow along on the class presentation.
