SWS Online Learning Platform Boosts Curiosity in Student
There are no classrooms at online schools and no other students. There is you — a student, an online learning platform, and (sometimes) a teacher. For Sport World School, it was imperative to make sure our students learn in an environment that encourages them to strive for more knowledge. And since they learn on their own, they shouldn’t feel lost or uncomfortable. That is why we opted for one of the best systems for delivering online education. A top-notch platform and high-quality curriculum guarantee the best knowledge a student can get.
Children who play sports are used to good results and improving their performances. That is something their respected coaches teach them on sports fields. Yet, they shouldn’t expect anything less from other areas of their lives, including education. By following that sports spirit, Sport World School as well always strives for greatness. Our greatness comes from satisfied students who use all the benefits of online schooling.
What Is an Online Learning Platform?
An online learning platform is a website where the entire learning material is stored. That website is not available to anyone, it is accessible only to online students and teachers. Each student has its own profile on the platform, and they can access any lesson or any other assignment, write to a teacher, and follow personal progress at online school.
Since the platform is a place where students will spend most of their time, we made sure the time spent on it is worthwhile. Sport World School uses Odyseywarre — a learning management system that is one of the world’s best.
Ready, Set, Learn
The Odyssayware team had online learning in mind when they designed the platform. Each aspect and element encourages students to learn more and turn learning into a fun activity rather than an obligation. Here are some of the main assets of this platform:
- Easy navigation
- Interactive curriculum
- Accessibility to a teacher
- Other useful features
Grown-ups who work in an online environment don’t have trouble finding their way through most websites and systems. Yet, it is a bit different for young students. Imagine switching a classroom with a blackboard with some virtual environment where you are all alone, and you have to find a lesson or test, or do any of your assignments. It sounds terrifying, but it is not — at least not with the Sport World School. The platform has an excellent and welcoming interface, and it is incredibly easy to navigate.
Our consultant or teacher will guide each of our students through the platform and explain how it works. We are sure students won’t have any trouble finding their way around it. Everything is transparent and intuitive, and a student can easily find lessons and assignments. Likewise, they will be able to see personal progress with the learning material. For instance — how well did they do a test, or how much material they covered so far.
In other words, going through our online learning platform is not more complicated than going through the menu of a video game. And we all know the majority of children excel in that activity. This simplicity is crucial because if the platform is complicated, children wouldn’t even bother to log in and learn. And that would be a problem. It was vital for us that they feel welcome and comfortable from the moment they log in.
Online students learn mostly independently, so standard delivery of learning material will not do the job. That is why we took advantage of multimedia and interactive elements. At online school, students don’t use books because everything is delivered — well — online. Yet, the material is not presented only through text, because it would be incredibly dull. We genuinely aim to make learning fun again and bring back students to acquiring knowledge through exploration.
With interactive and multimedia forms such as videos, quizzes, photos, graphics, and audio form, we turned lessons and individual learning into a fun activity. Our students don’t feel like they are obliged to study because studying feels like exploring and discovering new things. If they have fun while learning, they will want to learn even more, but more importantly, they will acquire knowledge with more ease.
Accessibility to a teacher
Students learn on their own in the platform, but they are not entirely unsupervised. Our teachers monitor their progress and are there in case a student gets stuck with the material. The platform has a messaging box that is the quickest way for a student to contact a teacher. They don’t have to return to the main menu to access the inbox. A student can find this feature in the upper right corner of the screen, and a student can access it from any lesson, test, or quiz.
There are several reasons why this is good. Firstly, a student doesn’t have to leave the assignment they were working on if they have a question. Therefore, the attention remains on the learning material. And secondly, that is the most convenient way of communicating with a teacher. As soon as students stumble into a problem or difficulty understanding material, they can ask for an explanation directly.
By now, you’ve figured out that our online learning platform helps students learn independently. It has some other features that are of vast help to young learners. Sport World School is an international online school, and we have students from all around the globe. Naturally, we can’t expect them all to speak English as a maternal language. The platform has a Translator that enables students to translate a word, a phrase, a sentence, or the entire paragraph.
Additionally, the platform has a Dictionary that enables students to learn the correct meaning of a particular word or phrase. If a specific topic from the curriculum interests them in particular, they can explore it more in-depth. A platform offers many outgoing links to verified and safe websites where students can deepen their knowledge about a certain subject in case their curiosity goes beyond the school curriculum.
Sport World School strives for greatness, and we provide our students with the best conditions for learning. In this article, we mentioned that our online learning platform enables them to study on their own without the help of a teacher. Likewise, multimedia elements encourage students to learn and boost their curiosity to explore and discover even more. If you would like to see how our platform looks like, book a free consultation with one of our consultants. They will gladly guide you through the platform and present all its possibilities.
