Evident Point and eThink Education partner to provide adaptive and active learning capabilities to Moodle™ and Totara
We are pleased to announce that Evident Point has partnered with eThink Education, a world-class eLearning solutions provider, to provide adaptive and active learning capabilities to Moodle™ and Totara users.
This partnership provides eThink clients with ActiveTextbook, an adaptive learning tool that enhances student learning, and can be seamlessly integrated within the Learning Management System (LMS). ActiveTextbook takes learners from reading to interacting by allowing Instructors to enrich course materials with videos, images, audio clips, texts, attachments, and interactive widgets, encouraging deeper engagement with learning resources.
eThink clients can now take advantage of ActiveTextbook features such as:
- Multiple extensions of the books, each with different set of interactive elements, adapting them to the specific needs of different groups of students
- Accessibility features such as high-contrast color schemes, support of screen-readers, text-to-speech, and keyboard shortcuts
- Free educational resources such as OpenStax books, which can be transformed from being static to active, thus making them much more engaging and collaborative for learners
- Detailed analytic reports and quiz results that can be transferred to and analyzed within the LMS to their LMS to be analyzed within that system
“We are very excited to start working with eThink, a leading provider of the open-source Learning Management System Moodle™ and its corporate-specific offshoot, Totara,” commented Yuri Khramov, Founder of Evident Point. “Working with a company with such international reach and a fantastic track record of high-quality support and service will be great for our clients who can have all their LMS-related needs covered by a reliable Moodle™ and Totara Partner. Utilizing ActiveTextbook’s adaptive learning tool directly within the LMS can easily enhance the learning process.”
“eThink is pleased to partner with Evident Point and to provide our clients with an adaptive learning tool that will help encourage more meaningful engagement during the learning process,” said Brian Carlson, Co-Founder and CEO of eThink Education. “Using ActiveTextbook is a simple way that instructors can revive older educational resources or to create new and engaging content.”
Interactivity in eLearning aids students to deepen their understanding of the subject matter through experimentation, and ActiveTextbook makes that goal easier to achieve. Educators can adapt existing textbooks to the specific demands of their classroom, receive feedback, and update on the fly. The platform takes learners from reading to interacting by allowing Instructors to enrich course materials with videos, images, audio clips, texts, attachments, and interactive widgets in order to liven up the text and further encourage students to learn. In addition, ActiveTextbook allows learners to make notes, highlight the text, bookmark pages, use the built-in dictionary, and add their own interactive benefits to the books. With this platform, learners can share their books, which gives them a window into how other students read. To learn more about ActiveTextbook, please visit www.activetextbook.com.
