eLearning for schools
eLearning and webinars are concepts that have been used more than ever in 2020 - and are here to stay!
In the world of education, these are also interesting online classroom methods that help your students evolve and improve.
eLearning platforms for schools supplements traditional classroom training, e.g. by offering you to create online lessons as xtra help for students that need it, as reference work or material beyond the core curriculum for extra bright students.
It is also an excellent way to offer students tests and quizzes alongside their class-based lectures and add gamification.

Create online Video Courses to The Rescue for Schools
Our future generation studying in schools and colleges are affected by pandemics and other situations where it is not possible to go physically to school. eLearning technologies like uQualio® have come to the forefront of efforts to improve distance learning.
The classroom system has been in use for centuries. It has been tried, tested, and reformed millions of times. Online learning is a new and evolving methodology. Online learning software and platforms are relying on videos to make eLearning an effective support system or an alternative to classroom learning. You can hardly imagine an eLearning program today without videos. Videos attract 80% of all web traffic, and pedagogy experts believe it is better to show than tell a skill! Text and images are so impersonal and lifeless. eLearning for schools without videos will miss the human element. It will fail to create the teacher-student relationship that is so crucial to the classroom environment and here uQualio get really help your students!
1. Short Videos Are Better
Take inspiration from how our brains absorb information - in small chunks. Use this approach and create short instructional videos - preferably less than 5 minutes long. Help students to focus on the content, easily digest the information, and retain the target skills by segmenting lessons into bite-sized videos (max. 3 messages per video). Also, dividing a topic into segments and making multiple videos enables the viewers to link new and existing knowledge. Adding questions, and gamification helps learners to memorize or internalize the information. Conversely, long videos with extensive information often lead to cognitive overload. Students retain little and struggle to remain engaged with the subject.
2. Make the Videos Interactive
There are many ways to keep the students engaged with videos. The best teachers around the world use this approach, adding context to the instruction. Adding interactivity (assignments such as asking for the students’ input in the form of electronic files or videos they produce themselves), which they return through ‘Feedback’ encourages students to reflect, analyze, and learn. Remember, many young people are very attuned to graphics, video-based content, and self-expression.
Another approach is to challenge learners using an immediate, or short interval mistake-driven learning approach. Interrupt the video at regular intervals to challenge both retention and understanding by introducing small tasks that trigger their interest and curiosity. You can keep the learners interested by connecting instructions with real-life scenarios. Real-life examples, stories, and graphics are easy to relate, memorize, and recall. And the gamification makes it easy to repeat practicing for the right answer.
The uQualio® eLearning platform provides a perfect method to use the mistake-driven learning approach as learners have a chance to try, try again through our practice question feature. Once they have internalized the information, skill, or knowledge, they take the test.
Also, this approach can help students who remain silent in the classroom, by giving them an opportunity to engage without fear of failure (in front of their classmates). The purpose of adding interactivity in eLearning videos is to prevent learners from becoming mere spectators. Finally, at the end of the video or session, encourage students to share their feedback and concerns – also on the platform. Dealing with feedback in a constructive manner without being judgmental helps students to build confidence, increases motivation, and encourages their overall development.
3. Consider the Quality & Size of The Videos
The uQualio® platforms automatically compress uploaded videos and deliver them in 3 video picture qualities – depending on the device your students are watching from. Videos, of course, must be good enough to see and understand all the visual and graphic elements in it, but high-quality picture makes it difficult to stream. Creating and uploading video files that stream without buffering requires digital infrastructure, which is an unplanned expenditure for schools and colleges. Pixilated images and slow loading videos affect students’ concentration and experience.
Remember in video eLearning, less is more. So create short videos for easy assimilation of information. Short videos also mean smaller file sizes that are easier and quicker to upload and download.
Quick Check Points
Avoid jerky motions and coding errors - these can be distracting to learners.
Audio is especially important - unclear narration or distracting background noise will undermine the effectiveness of the video and impact the whole learning experience.
4. Prepare for Desktop & MLearning
Although internet connectivity has reached a large percentage of households, inside the house, the quality is different from house to house. Not every household has a desktop computer. Some prefer using laptops for eLearning courses in the virtual classroom. Plus, smartphones and tablets allow students to watch educational videos anywhere
uQualio® ensures that video formats that work with laptops run as well on smartphones. Formats are compatible with all devices to increase the experience for the students.
Schooling/Education has been waiting for innovation and disruption. The digitalization of classrooms is the way forward or at least for the foreseeable future. Videos play a disproportionately large role in eLearning and in the process of disseminating knowledge among the students.
