This repository is aggregated and continuously populated through ongoing development at Educomp’s Digital Products and Solutions (DIPS) group, located in a state of the art 30,000 sq feet facility in Noida Special Economic Zone near New Delhi, India.
The content repository consists of thousands of highly animated, lesson specific, 3D and 2D multimedia modules built with an Instructor-led design that allows the teacher to effectively transact the lesson in a typical classroom of diverse set of learners. Educational videos from Eureka and Discovery channel are available for teachers to use in the classroom.
The modules are embedded in a template that allow the teachers to teach a chosen lesson in class, frame by frame, with engaging and instructionally sound animated set of visuals while retaining complete control on the pace of delivery. The curriculum reach unfolds from kindergarten to grade twelve covering subjects like Mathematics, Science, English, EVS, Social Studies, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Economics and Business Studies. Our repository consists of multimedia 2D and 3D modules.
Every chapter has a set of ‘Multiple Choice Questions’ designed to assess learning achieved at different cognitive levels in that specific lesson in class. These are launched through the engine, displayed on screen for students to answer. The Smart classTM uses an innovative assessment methodology of using wireless handheld devices which are provided to each student to answer multiple choice questions in the classroom.
Teachers can also create their own smart tests and use them in the class for assessment. For this purpose, a Test Authoring Tool has been added to the Smart classTM assessment application.
At home, the Smart classTM system includes a virtual school, where parents, teachers and students can communicate with each other. Teachers can upload assignments for students to download, and make available important information for parents to view.
