About this talk

In just a few short weeks, the ‘normal’ educational schedule was thrown into chaos. Schools, colleges and universities were faced with complete shut down - no pupils, no teachers and a significantly reduced ability to deliver lessons in a meaningful way. Despite their best efforts many schools have struggled to adapt to the current crisis, with teachers under a lot of strain to keep lessons going without systems designed to help them manage their curriculums appropriately. As time has progressed, many people (particularly parents) have asked why technology, that is increasingly used in our private lives (particularly younger generations), is not being utilised to its full potential in education. Experts in the industry are already predicting the impact of coronavirus will compel many institutions to rethink their learning strategies. This webinar will present Open eLMS Live - a system designed to help teachers deliver a timetable of classroom learning remotely using existing teleconferencing systems and online learning resources. We are confident that you will see the benefits of running this remote learning platform now and also when your school reopens. It will also enable you to create a plan of action should a shutdown be necessary at any time in the future.
