Virtual Campus: Learning is Social
Learning and teaching online has to be fun, familiar and easy to do for engagement levels and participation to increase among teachers and students. Virtual Campus aims to do just that.
Virtual Campus is a cloud-based social learning system that allows social network-like collaboration, integrating the academic portion through its simple yet powerful learning management system. It aims to help schools connect the stakeholders (teachers, students, parents, administrators) in one single platform.
Teachers and students can log in and collaborate using social walls, calendar, notifications, blogging, discussion boards, photos and chat. Teachers can manage their online classes with ease as well, incorporating grading, lesson modules, and even create their own online quizzes/exams.
The idea here is to create something that is already familiar to the web user of today. We all know that training or even helping teachers to use learning management systems can be painstakingly difficult and costly. This makes implementation and change management for the school easier.
