Digital learning model for Virtual classes
Online classes with no paper needed and students can print a few pages for classroom worksheets. Homework fully online. Applicable to ALL levels.
Pandemic forced all the Tamil schools to operate virtually and with the fully printed book paper based model is not ideal. For the benefit of many schools operating virtual schools, OpenLMS content for both classroom and assignment can be used. without the need of printed booklet even for Mazhalai, Basic 1, 2 & 3.
Digital virtual learning means all students and teachers have access to a digital device during the class, so entire LSRW content for all 10 levels (Mazhalai, Basic 1, 2 & 3, Unit 1 to 18) can be used for each week’s classroom instruction by both student and teacher. Students complete assignments digitally and are reviewed by teachers also digitally.
Authenticated access to OpenLMS for Teacher and Student scenario: To make use of all aspects of the syllabus, it has the latest and greatest content in OpenLMS for both students and teachers.
Assessment: When authenticated, each course (semester) has LSRW assessments within the course to administer and assess remotely.
Using guest access in OpenLMS for Teacher and Student scenario: Using guest access all Speaking and Writing content can be used via other tools like recording student responses and scanning written responses to share via student/teacher emails. Interpretive Reading/Listening can be used for classroom instruction login as guest by both teacher and student. Students can practice the reading/listening content as many times until getting it correct, but this is not tracked by teachers since login as guest is anonymous.
Alternatively, IPA template questions can be printed by teacher or student to manually record the answers to submit via scanned copies through email. Any content in OpenLMS can be printed using any browser settings printing a page.
Assessment: When using guest login, the assessments will not be available to view for either teacher or student. Teachers need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for LSRW assessment for any end of semester assessments. This will be shared one time for each semester on good faith and teachers can update that going forward.
