Inspired Learning Through Technology and Connection

Whether you’re a K-12 teacher looking to reach your students or the head of a corporate L&D department looking to more effectively train employees, you want your learners to get something out of your courses. Unfortunately, the logistics of making that happen can prove challenging. Every learner has a different learning style and studies best at their own pace, making it difficult to accommodate everyone with a program designed for the masses. Similarly, many learners feel that courses are something that happens to them rather than something they have any influence over. 

 

Technology offers a way to share the information your learners need in a way that suits them well, driving high performance in the classroom and at the workplace. The best technological tools work the way students and instructors do, and that’s where the Echosystem comes into play. The Echosystem is a portfolio of learning engagement solutions created to drive superior educational outcomes for all learners through our e3 philosophy of equity, evidence, and engagement. Continue reading to find out more about inspired learning and how our products can help bring it to fruition.

 

 

What is inspired learning?

An inspired learning model is one in which each individual learner’s preferred study style and pace of learning are prioritized. Lessons shouldn’t have a set pace or format, instead allowing learners to choose how long to spend with each concept and how to study it. Positive reinforcement is frequently used to reward learners for skills demonstrated or knowledge understood consistent with the goals of the program. This can be anything from a physical reward to a “Good job!” from a manager. Inspired learning programs also emphasize the relationships between a curriculum’s big ideas, core skills, and global competencies to encourage true mastery of the material, not just the ability to regurgitate it on a test. 

 

Most education professionals agree that an individualized approach to learning will produce the best outcomes, but a traditional classroom with one instructor for many students and time constraints set in stone rarely facilitates inspired learning. Technology can provide more personalization during classroom lessons while allowing some aspects of education to be removed from the classroom entirely, empowering every student to learn to their full potential while helping organizations more effectively manage the logistics of education. many

How can technology make learning feel more inspired?

One major benefit of technology in the classroom and beyond is that it gives learners more control. They can engage with what works for them, whether it’s reading along with captions on a video or interacting with other students to talk out ideas. Maybe concepts don’t sink in unless they review them in a more comfortable environment like the couch or a coffee shop. Options inspire students to put forth their best effort because the delivery of information better aligns with their needs. Each product within the Echosystem is designed to empower inspired e-learning. Here is a brief look at how each of these tools puts learners, instructors, and administrators first. 

 

EchoVideo

EchoVideo is a video content management platform unleashing the true educational potential of videos. EchoVideo is a simple but powerful lecture capture and video editing tool with a responsive playback system that works on all devices. EchoVideo also features automatic transcriptions. When combined one of many compatible captioning solutions, learners can read along with video content during playback, facilitating multimodal learning by engaging as many senses as possible in the educational process.

 

EchoVideo includes features to make video reach learners better. Inject multimedia content into videos to promote engagement or drive home a point. Embed quizzes to collect evidence of information retention. Collected data can be viewed directly in EchoVideo’s player or exported to an LMS or VLE for maximum convenience.

 

EchoEngage

EchoEngage is best described as a place where all of your organization’s training materials come together. Your instructors will create courses and self-paced assignments on EchoEngage using intuitive drag-and-drop tools and an extensive library of multimedia elements to help presentations pop. If you already have course materials you trust, integration with Microsoft PowerPoint makes it easy to keep utilizing them. Likewise, your administrators will have dedicated dashboards detailing who is enrolled in what and how learners are faring in each of their courses. If a learner starts struggling, your organization will have the evidence needed to take action. 

 

On the learner side, EchoEngage offers personalized course recommendations to remind learners to take required courses while pointing them toward content that could help them pursue promotion within your organization. Gamification elements like badges and social learning opportunities provide the positive reinforcement many learners need to do their best. Learners can even send their instructors a private message if they need help with something but are too shy to ask for it.

 

EchoExam

EchoExam is test-building software designed to make it as easy as possible for instructors to create accurate, fair assessments. You can choose from a multitude of question banks sourced from leading publishers across a multitude of industries or write your own. You can also generate up to 26 versions of an exam automatically, ensuring equity while discouraging cheating since each test-taker has a different exam. Best of all, instructors can use EchoExam to create other materials such as self-paced assessments and study guides, promoting learner engagement by assuring them each assignment will be related to the test.
