    • The summative assessment features such as multiple-choice tests produced at the end of a course are all currently available in Learning Management Systems.

It is promising to see that modern Learning Management Systems offer teachers the opportunity to evaluate their students' understanding at the right time with the right intervention plan.

  • A letter to our daughter on Dec 04, 15
    • We must take risks today to learn lessons for tomorrow. We're early in our learning and many things we try won't work, but we'll listen and learn and keep improving.
    • Our generation grew up in classrooms where we all learned the same things at the same pace regardless of our interests or needs.
      Your generation will set goals for what you want to become -- like an engineer, health worker, writer or community leader. You'll have technology that understands how you learn best and where you need to focus. You'll advance quickly in subjects that interest you most, and get as much help as you need in your most challenging areas. You'll explore topics that aren't even offered in schools today. Your teachers will also have better tools and data to help you achieve your goals.
