There’s a change taking place in today’s classrooms, one that expands the walls of our campuses and into the digital world. Notepads are being replaced with laptops and assessments can now take place anywhere, at anytime, on any device. ELearning is all about using electronic technologies for educational curriculum outside the boundaries of traditional classroom and, of course, it is gaining popularity especially among the younger generation over the past decade. Here is a brief insight into the platform we use at COBA for our eLearning.
At COBA we chose the Ammonite LMS for three reasons:
- Question Banks & Randomisation
- Webcam Capture
- Combined SMS Automation
Question Banks & Randomisation
Challenging your learners has never been easier. You can now create question banks and randomise questions, meaning learners see a different version of the question each time they access the content. This prevents students from simply memorising the correct answers or applying a ‘cheat sheet’.
The ability to learn independently from others and most noteworthy the flexibility of e-learning has seen its popularity skyrocket since the early 2000’s. The only (and major) problem is verifying the identity of each student. COBA wanted a future-proof LMS and Ammonite had the answer. Webcam verification takes a random photo during every question of the assessment.
Combined SMS Automation
We came to Ammonite for their LMS yet they are so much more. They call themselves an all-in-one cloud based, AVETMISS-compliant, Student, Learning and Training Management System. They were build by an RTO for RTO’s. Confidence in authenticity and ease of automation is what separates them from the rest.
From continuous improvement of assessments, staff CPD’s, trainer management, management meetings, trainer and industry validations of assessments, mapping assessments to live documents from TGA, sending and collating feedback, Ammonites platform automates these otherwise onerous tasks.
