On the foundation of BiBooks, we've developed a Digital Learning Environment that allows the University or Learning Centre to establish flexible and collaborative communication with the students. We give the teachers the chance to, from PDFs or old-format files, achieve direct interaction with the content and the student.
in its right place
Imagine that, rather than interrupting an exam to do the listening, the teacher could give each and every student the chance to listen to the recording whenever they get to that exercise. Imagine that, instead of quoting a fragment from a conference that illustrates your the chapter, you could actually take the student to that conference. Imagine, in short, the learning experience is not linear, but one in which the student has many levels and paths to follow to further the study as much as he/she would like to. Resources make this possible: and BiLearning gives the teacher the power to decide where those resources are placed.
With BiLearning, the teacher can configure the exercise it the way the benefit the students the most. It's the teacher who establishes the rating method, the type of exercise. He/she configures the responses, the number of attempts... In short: the teacher controls the class.
A teacher's feedback in these kind of platforms gives the student confidence, a notion of the individual and over-all progress to the teacher him/herself. That's why we have developed a flexible messaging system, that allows both student and teacher to contact directly. But it also enables the teacher to inlude the whole class in his answer to a direct message, if he/she believes the inquiry is relevant. He can also attach a message when grading and exercise. The students can also link a message to a specific text or exercise that they want to ask about.
