High school courses

Background

Education is always at a critical point as it is essential for economic prosperity and the development of personnel. Interactive, personalized learning are the assets students get from mobile apps. For students, education-based applications provide convenience by helping them achieve more in less time.

According to “Report”, “Students who study on mobile, typically study for 40 minutes longer than students who use a desktop computer or tablet.”

Pain point

Teachers:

• In an era of very rapid technological development there is a feeling of irrelevance in learning using outdated methods: there is no possibility of interactive learning, cumbersome learning methods that make it difficult for the student and lower motivation

• There is no possibility of continuous communication with the student

• Checking students’ exams takes a lot of time out of leisure time

• Difficulty in tracking each student’s progress personally

 

Students:

• In an age where many students suffer from attention deficit problems, learning and doing homework that requires sitting for hours on end is an almost impossible task

• There is difficulty in communicating with teachers

The challenge

• Transferring online courses from desktop to mobile while maintaining the user’s comfort, adapting the content and a fun and simple learning experience
• Encouraging students to invest in their studies while enabling them to learn in short periods of time, by applying more modern teaching methodologies such as the use of dynamic content and experiential learning in the classroom
• Significantly improve the communication of students and teachers
• Give the student the opportunity to learn from anywhere at any time – on the bus, waiting in line, etc.
• Allow tracking of the student’s progress and, accordingly, also allow adaptive learning
• Shortening the time it takes to review classes and exams

Background
Rinat has been a high school science teacher for over 20 years.
Teaches 5 days a week. After the school day, either she returns home or she stays in the school for a teachers’ meeting.
She spends her afternoons with her children, and in the evening she takes time to prepare her homework for tomorrow, and sometimes also checks exams.
During breaks between classes, she talks to her friends and colleagues about new teaching methods, the difficulty of finding time to talk to students in person, and the fact that people are unaware of their long working hours at home.

Responsibility
• Planning classes and delivering them in class

• Assessing students’ abilities, strengths and weaknesses

• Checking assignments and tests of classmates

• Communicate to parents/students about academic progress/problems

• Work with individual students to challenge them and improve their abilities

The solution

A course app for high school students.

The teachers upload the relevant courses for each student throughout the high school years.

Here I present a science course, and only the student’s side and not the back-office side.

Throughout the year, the teacher opens up to the students the lessons that he or she believes the students can begin to learn on their own.

Each course includes written texts, video and/or animations.
In addition, the courses include self-practice, papers and tests in accordance with the field being studied.

The student will receive feedback from the teacher through the app.

In addition, there is a collaborative wall for joint study and consultations with the other students.

Example of a desktop course

The desktop course I am presenting was designed by me in 2016 in the organization’s content management system with its limitations. The design then was considered innovative because of the use of round corners and a very obligatory structure including division into zones, which made it difficult for the developers. There was a long debate about whether to invest the time in developing a new template for this course.

After the course was developed and released, there was a lot of enthusiasm and other departments (additional disciplines) began to demand that they also renew the courses templates.
