The dynamic industry requirements have challenged the traditional teaching and learning methods of engineering education. It resulted in an increased emphasis on Outcome-Based Education (OBE). It is a learner-driven system, wherein it helps the learner with their objectives and also facilitates the faculty accordingly. Further, the most important aim of higher education is the attainment of critical thinking and gaining higher-order thinking skills.
In the college education ecosystem, the faculty’s role has become important in identifying ways to encourage students, applying various methods in teaching and to efficiently assess the student’s learner outcomes and the skills levels.
Outcomes specify what student will know or be able to do as a result of the learning exercise. Bloom’s taxonomy for example, has given reasonable guidelines in designing the model to assess the outcomes of various cognitive levels of the students.
Edwisely provides a learning experience to students with tremendous flexibility, allowing them to learn in their own way, at their own pace, and in a way most convenient to them.
This platform can be immensely beneficial to students. The platform provides guidance through a recommendation engine powered by artificial intelligence so that students can reach their goals.
Edwisely automatically provides students with the kinds of learning supports that a tutor would provide at the times the students need feedback, while still allowing students to retain the freedom and control the system already provides.
We are researching to enhance and evolve the platform and will be releasing an advanced system in the next phase.
At Edwisely we enable learners to embrace the true power of self-learning. Self Learning is an established concept in learning research, and it relates to the capacity of the student to support their own learning by deploying various techniques to increase understanding and retain information. Factors involved in self-learning include cognitive, metacognitive, behavioral, motivational, and emotional aspects of learning.
All of us engage in self-learning to some extent, so we’re all familiar to varying degrees with many of these techniques, such as goal-setting, time management, revision, self-testing, note-taking, help-seeking, along with many other behaviors that improve the student’s learning.
Edwisely’s learning platform offers tools that enable self-learning behaviors, but without encouragement, we may see students engaging in these behaviors only to the extent that they would naturally — thus maintaining the achievement gap between strong self-learners and others.
