Due to the sudden outbreak of pandemic, lives of the people took a massive turn and everything changed…the change we all were not ready for but as it is said that “Change is the only constant” and so, it becomes necessary to accept it and follow the mantra of “Learn, Unlearn & Relearn”. In the field of education, Digitalization has become an integral part as it the resourceful use of digital technologies and tools throughout the teaching and learning process.
Digitalization in education sector has replaced traditional teaching system and lots of institutions are adopting this technology as the solution for the suspension of face-to-face teaching. The most importance benefits of digital teaching and learning are:
- Tailored & Personalized Learning:
iCloudEMS takes care of the visionary needs of Higher Education Institutes and delivers a web-based & Outcome-Based Learning Management System (OBE-LMS) to strengthen the deployment of prime technology in managing and organizing the academic workflow. It provides an opportunity to assist students in personalized learning as the teachers can customize the curriculum based on students’ learning pace and capability. Students can download recorded lectures and provided study material for revision and practice.
- Brings Digital Smartness in Teachers and students:
Teachers and students have started acquainting themselves with these digital technologies and acclimatizing themselves with the changing times. By getting trained about different teaching and learning tools, teachers and students are enabling themselves to learn faster and use online resources as faster as they can. Digital technologies can enhance their efficiency and productivity. iCloudEMS with the help of its managed services, is assisting University ERP system and College ERP software so that the digital tools can sharpen critical thinking skills, reasoning skills and ameliorate the confidence in order to motivate them to learn even more new things like various online teaching apps, recorded live classes, certification and training programs, digital classrooms etc.
- Involvement of important stakeholders like teachers and parents:
Digital learning tools and technologies like social learning platforms have made it easy for the teachers to create and manage students’ and parents’ groups. The opportunity to customize learning sequences for each student has made education more productive and has accelerated the overall progress. With the help of products like OBE-LMS, Online exam management system and Student Lifecycle management system, teachers can design assessment activities and exam papers, take prompt actions for unethical behaviour of students during the exam and generate the results on the spot. Parents too can remain informed about the time table of classes and exams, can observe the ongoing classes and share their experiences with the management and get their children’s results to analyse the performance.
- Assisting the Institutions in getting Accredited with authentic means:
Accreditation for an institute has become compulsory to survive. iCloudEMS provides it managed services to the University/College ERP software in simplifying the accreditation process by automating the tasks aligned with accrediting bodies, maintaining OBE LMS by conducting online classes smoothly, generating authentic and accurate reports without any errors, controlling the examination and evaluation process assuring completely genuine results and providing transparent portal for the students’ and parents’ feedback to assess the overall performance of the institute.
To conclude, we can say that Digital learning tools and technology is filling the gaps where traditional classroom teaching fell behind. In fact, some of the efficiencies such tools bring are simply unmatchable by traditional learning techniques. From the environmental impact recognized by the need for less paper for handouts and books to saving time with quick access to information and the ease of research, digital learning provides an effective way to cut costs, maximize resources and heighten both reach and impact for students and educators alike.
