Analytics is a buzzword these days, and we are happy to see the industry catching up. We have been at this since the late 1990´s. Getting results is important, but don´t disregard the books not built into an LMS… they can provide useful data for teachers. This, too, is what we do.
There is a wealth of textbooks and other resources from publishers large and small, with fantastic, vetted, properly created content. They should not be separate from the classroom or platform, but they should work together, with scores from a book returning straight into the LMS. That´s what we do.
We come from a teaching background, meaning we understand teachers. Every teacher preps their own materials for use in the classroom, and these can be very valuable assets. We welcome and support such actions, allowing teachers to upload videos, Word docs, audio, PDFs, spreadsheets and so on. Make this your own!
