Your Ultimate E-Learning Checklist for 2022

April 19, 2022

The classroom has taken many forms over the last few years, from the traditional in-person setting to the remote, online and distance learning formats that have taken precedence around the world. Creating a teaching environment that is accessible, inclusive and meaningfully engaging is a challenge every teacher faces, regardless of the format the classroom takes.

So, we’ve created a checklist of the most important elements every teacher needs to transition to a more hybrid and smart teaching environment.

The classroom has taken many forms over the last few years, from the traditional in-person setting to the remote, online and distance learning formats that have taken precedence around the world. Creating a teaching environment that is accessible, inclusive and meaningfully engaging is a challenge every teacher faces, regardless of the format the classroom takes.

So, we’ve created a checklist of the most important elements every teacher needs to transition to a more hybrid and smart teaching environment.

  • E-Learning Authoring Tool;

developing an e-learning course should not be intimidating. An authoring tool allows you to use text, media, and any graphical and animated elements to create great course content. With pre-developed templates, tools and testing formats to design and organise your content, you can collaborate with any of your school’s stakeholders to deliver a custom and standardised lesson plan for your students. Whichever authoring tool you go with, ensure that it’s compatible with your LMS platform.

Recommended solution providers:

Obami, iSpring Suite, Elucidat, Articulate.

  • Learning Management System (LMS);

improve operational efficiency, admin, and classroom management with an LMS platform that provides you with the educational data, record keeping, and progress tracking you need. An LMS platform is where you store and deliver all your course content, while providing you with the data and analytics to report on learner performance and participation. Some LMS platforms integrate video conferencing, course building (like an authoring tool), testing capabilities, and social communication features into their software.

Recommended solution providers:

Moodle LMS (this software is optionally included in our Niflink Teach solution), Blackboard, Eduflow, iSpring Learn.

  • Quality Content;

perhaps the most important part of your e-learning suite is the type of content you share with your students. Achieving high engagement that yields strong retention and comprehension is integral to the quality of content you source, create and deliver. Complement your existing courseware with paid or whitelisted course material, and pair it with an authoring tool to design custom, standardised and interactive lessons.

Recommended solution providers:

2Enable (free and optionally included in our Niflink Teach solution), Obami (paid), Paradiso Solutions (paid).

  • Data compression software & storage solution;

as your course load increases over time, the need to reduce your storage capacity while reliably transferring content will be essential. Shrink your videos, images, audio and text files to achieve faster, buffer-free streaming, without compromising the quality of your course content. With data compression, you have the dual benefit of improving the transfer efficiency of large-scale data, while minimising the need for large storage on your laptop, server, or mobile phone.

  • Interactive mobile teaching app;

once considered the bane of every classroom, the smartphone is now just as important to your edtech tool stack as the laptop. Streamline course delivery, homework, testing, and progress assessments with a mobile teaching app. Continue to communicate and interact with your students (as well as parents) beyond the classroom. Most mobile teaching apps are incorporated into LMS and e-learning authoring platforms, while some are provided as a separate solution. 

Recommended solution providers:

TeacherKit, ClassDojo.

  • Interactive smart screens;

forgo the static chalkboard or whiteboard for a more dynamic experience, by engaging your students with an interactive smart screen. With a rich media mix of resources to incorporate into your lessons, you can display all types of content – such as images, videos and eBooks – from your laptop to the smart screen. With this display option, you can inspire more collaboration among your students though an immersive learning space that is adaptable to any online or hybrid classroom.

  • Video conferencing & streaming;

whether you’re looking to reach hundreds of students located across decentralised remote classrooms or reach them at home on their smart device, connect with your students with a real-time broadcasting and streaming solution. You can communicate with them on a one-to-one basis or through mass communication, at your convenience, while still benefiting from two-way interaction to deliver a shared learning experience.
