Educational institutes, including schools, colleges, and universities, are now switching to online learning and promoting learning from home to slow down the spread of contagious COVID-19 (Coronavirus) around the globe.
Many educationists are indicating that this unfortunate closure of campuses can affect student’s academic progress and learning capabilities during this pandemic. Meanwhile, parents are worried about their children’s future and looking for an equally effective solution that can keep them wired with the learning process. “It’s virtual instruction time, and I think we’re moving more and more toward this,” said sixth-grade teacher Francesco Fasolo.
So as a mutual interest of educational institutes and students, learning from home is appreciated and considered as a ray of hope for educational continuity.
We are living in a time where technology has already established as a rescuer to many problems, internet signals are available at every nook and corner, and virtual connectivity platforms are capable enough to connect teachers and students even they are miles apart like Zoom, Adobe Connect, Google Classroom and many more. For fruitful, “Learning From Home” environment, all we need is a better Learning Management system (LMS). Now the million-dollar question is how we can make a progressive Learning Management System, which is result-oriented, engaging, and motivating for its users.
Here comes the myCred (An intelligent and adaptive points management system) integrated with a large number of popular learning management systems, that includes: LearnDash, LifterLMS, and LearnPress.
