How can you maintain the teaching link with a remote student?

Published on July 27, 2020

The many features of Skolengo allow teachers to present their courses remotely when one or more students cannot come to class: hospitalised students, students practicing high level sport, imposed lock-down measures, etc. Skolengo thus maintains a link with the students providing educational continuity.

With the Teaching and Communication modules, Skolengo allows schools to perform their teaching remotely when the situations impose it.

Teaching binder: teaching activities and resources that can be consulted remotely

With the teaching binder, teachers can create activities using professional tools like the audio recorder, the exerciser, audio and video files, attached documents, free text, hypertext links, etc.
Skolengo also provides the possibility of organising activities into folders. Teachers can thus easily distribute their activities to students. The latter benefit from an identified location for quickly finding and consulting all the resources and activities sent by their teacher throughout the year. Teachers can also share their folders and activities with their colleagues.


Organiser: putting work-to-do on-line and monitoring the on-line delivery

With the organiser, the teacher can give work-to-do to students. They have a complete view of the work created and can check the state of progress of the on-line delivery of each work (number of homeworks delivered and not-delivered). For each work-to-do, the teacher has the possibility of producing a corrected paper that they can distribute to several classes or groups of students or a corrected paper per student. The teacher thus reinforces the individualised monitoring of students.
In the organiser, each student automatically finds the homework to deliver, as well as the list of the next courses and the associated work load, in a summary table. This system allows them to organise themselves.
Moreover, the teacher can ask students to deliver work in different forms, on-line: by completing a text under the instruction, by adding an attached file, by using the audio recorder (integrated tool in Skolengo), by replying to a form.

Other services like the blog, the forum, the chat and the pad can also be used to communicate and for ensuring teaching continuity when courses must be given remotely.

Messaging service: maintaining a link between the school and families/teachers

The messaging service provides communications between users around teaching, collaborative, administrative topics and for family exchanges. In case of need, families can for example, contact one of the student’s teachers to discuss a particular point.
