With Study Manager a teacher or teachers group can create and manage self study material – texts, sound, images, videos, links – for their students. The students work with the exercises and tasks in SharePoint.
Web-based learning environment
Use one site collection with one Study Manager installation per subject and share information and news about the subject in that Study Manager site collection. A discussion forum for the subject for students and teachers can also be added.
Benefit from SharePoint features
All standard SharePoint features can be used. Study Manager does not remove any functionality from SharePoint. The installation only adds the specific Study Manager features.
Teachers and students use Study Manager in different ways:
Add study material to Study Manager
Edit and remove study material
Decide hierarchy and order of the study material
Supervise the progress of all students
Correct or comment when students write texts or work with files in other ways
Solve different kinds of tasks
Listen to sound
See their own progress
Each study group has its own site in Study Manager. Here each student can reach the table of contents where he/she sees what exercises have been finished and which one is the next. This is also the place for everything that should be shared within the study group.
Study Manager arranges the study material in an hierarchic way that is easy to overview. The hierarchy is visible in the table of contents, which is updated automatically each time study material is added to, edited or removed from Study Manager.
The hierachy has five levels:
Each course can have any number of parts; every part can have any number of chapters and so on.
Study Manager has two types of exercises:
Listen to a text, with or without a possibility to follow the sound in the written text. This type of exercise is most suited for language courses.
Exercises with self correcting tasks. The exercise can be a text, an image, a video, graphics or a table, and different kinds of tasks are connected to it. Such exercises can be used for any subject.
Each of these exercises can have several kinds of self correcting tasks:
Connect with image
Drag to column
Listen to words
Students can also work with files that are commented on by the teacher.
