Blended Learning Management System

Our Blended Learning Management System are customized for each teacher/class and principal/school based on their needs and wants. Our systems are also able to deliver courses, classes, etc., to desktop computers, laptops, tablets, cellphones, iPhones, iPads, anywhere in the world. It can even deliver coursework and classwork to a computer in any public library in the nation, thus mitigating somewhat the “digital divide” and “homework gap”

Blended Learning Management System – First let us define “blended learning” and then the “system” which manages it.

Blended learning
 is the blending or combination of two modalities of learning: in-person and remote learning.

Blended learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. It requires the physical presence of both teacher and student, with some elements of student control over time, place, path, or pace.

While students still attend “brick-and-mortar” schools with a teacher present, face-to-face classroom practices are combined with computer-mediated activities regarding content and delivery.[1]

A blended approach to learning is about the design of a course that enhances the teaching and learning experiences for students and teachers by combining face-to-face learning activities with online learning components. … “Blended learning is the interdependent combination of face-to-face and online education.[2]

In essence, blended learning is the use of many different teaching modes, models, media, and technologies to best deliver education and learning to students, customizable to every student’s needs as an individual as opposed to a “one size fits all approach. Under the umbrella of blended learning, a teacher is free to incorporate and utilize the resources, technologies, and learning modalities best suited for a student or groups of students.

Blending learning is flexible and can combine these educational resources, technologies, media, etc. in various combinations and proportions depending on the needs of the student. Even the combinations and proportions of the learning modalities if flexible and customizable.

For instance, if a school closes due to “Covid-19” the class’s or school’s blended learning system should be able to shift weight to all remote learning immediately, easily, and seamlessly!

A Blended Learning Management System should be able to handle and manage all the teacher/class and principal school’s needs. It should serve as what is called in education a V.L.E. (Virtual Learning Environment). The VLE or Virtual Learning Environment is an internet-based learning environment for teachers, students and even parents can access to track, monitor, intervene, map, and display the students learning environment and world. The VLE facilitates communication between teachers, students, and parents. The VLE should also facilitate the communication of teachers, students, and parents amongst themselves.

“A virtual learning environment (VLE) in educational technology is a web-based platform for the digital aspects of courses of study, usually within educational institutions. They present resources, activities, and interactions within a course structure and provide for the different stages of assessment. VLEs also usually report on participation, and have some level of integration with other institutional systems.”[3]

Our Blended Learning System is a computer-based, internet/website (WordPress) based system capable of:

  • Content management – creation, storage, access to, and use of learning resources.
  • Curriculum mapping and planning – lesson planning, assessment, and personalization of the learning experience
  • Learner engagement and administration – managed access to learner information and resources and tracking of progress and achievement.
  • Communication and collaboration – emails, notices, chat, wikis, blogs
  • Real-time communication – live video conferencing or audio conferencing

A VLE may include some or all of the following elements:

  • The course syllabus
  • Administrative information about the course: prerequisites, credits, registration, payments, physical sessions, and contact information for the instructor.
  • A notice board for current information about the ongoing course
  • The basic content of some or all of the course; the complete course for distance learningapplications, or some part of it, when used as a portion of a conventional course. This normally includes material such as copies of lectures in the form of text, audio, or video presentations, and supporting visual presentations.
  • Additional resources, either integrated or as links to outside resources. This typically consists of supplementary reading or innovative equivalents for it.
  • Self-assessmentquizzes or analogous devices are normally scored automatically.
  • Formal assessment functions, such as examinations, essay submission, or presentation of projects. This now frequently includes components to support peer assessment
  • Support for communications, including e-mailthreaded discussionschat roomsTwitter, and other media, sometimes with the instructor or an assistant acting as moderator. Additional elements include wikisblogsRSS, and 3D virtual learning spaces.
  • Links to outside sources – pathways to all other online learning spaces are linked via the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment).
  • Management of access rightsfor instructors, their assistants, course support staff, and students
  • Documentation and statistics as required for institutional administration and quality control
  • Authoring tools for creating the necessary documents by the instructor, and, usually, submissions by the students.
  • Provision for the necessary hyperlinks to create a unified presentation to the students.
  • Interactive online whiteboard for live virtual classes

A VLE is normally not designed for a specific course or subject but is capable of supporting multiple courses over the full range of the academic program, giving a consistent interface within the institution and—to some degree—with other institutions using the system. The virtual learning environment supports the worldwide exchange of information between a user and the learning institute he or she is currently enrolled in through digital mediums like e-mail, chat rooms, web 2.0 sites, or a forum. 

Thus, it is obvious to do all of this a system must be used. Our system is very simple and can be set up and teachers and faculty are trained how to use it in as little as 30 days (90 days recommended).
