K-12 Learning Management System
eThink offers a comprehensive eLearning solution for K-12, simplified and customized to meet specific primary and secondary education needs.
As the world’s most widely used LMS, Moodle offers a highly flexible and interoperable solution for providing sustainable and effective education to K-12 institutions.
The popularity of Moodle as a K-12 learning management system largely comes down to the platform’s flexibility and interoperability due to its open-source structure. Open-source technology allows educators to create a completely customizable platform that can address the needs of learners at any level in primary and secondary schools. Entire districts can be run on a single LMS platform, with compartmentalized features to meet the needs of teachers and learners across different schools and grade levels. With Moodle, you have the flexibility to configure your platform to get exactly the features you need to meet your educational goals.
Why Should You Use an LMS to Support K-12 Learning?
Educate your learners during their most formative years and prepare them for college using an LMS to supplement classroom learning with engaging and dynamic online learning. Using an LMS for both synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom presents the opportunity to meet students more conveniently and effectively where they’re more likely to learn, whether that is online or in the classroom. In the blog below, we outline five key benefits of using Moodle LMS for primary and secondary education.
Incorporate Blended Learning in the Classroom
Take your school into the 21st century with an easy-to-use learning platform that simplifies both teaching and learning. Incorporate digital tools or content to supplement classroom learning with different modes of learning including video, gamficiation, or mobile learning. Add extra administrative tools, messaging capabilities, video conferencing, media, and more.
Streamline learning administration by tracking grades and other learning data directly within the LMS. Your LMS can integrate with your most important systems, such as your school’s student information systems and other online learning tools. With a Single Sign On, a centralized eLearning hub eliminates the need for remembering multiple passwords and makes life easy for students, teachers, and parents!
Track Learner Progress with Analytics and Reporting
Maximize learning initiatives and increase learner success by leveraging robust reporting within your LMS. Track course completion and how your students are interacting with the materials in your courses to evaluate where individual learners may need additional support or identify areas where lessons may be improved.
Increase College & Professional Readiness
Learning management systems are used extensively in both higher education and workplaces to provide consistent, high-quality instruction. Using an LMS in primary education prepares students for lifelong learning.
Parental Access Functionality
Add users and set permissions with just a few clicks, so parents or guardians can be given a chance to see progress as it happens. The result? Faster intervention for students who need it, whenever they might need it.
Increase Opportunities for Feedback & Communication
An LMS encourages more opportunities for feedback and communication between teachers and students as well as peers. An online platform can help staff provide timely and more personalized feedback on student assignments.
