Blue Node Media developed an e learning platform (skooldesk) using software as a service model that helps kids improve their test scores. We do this by providing a question bank for students where they can practice past papers (and other questions) and get graded instantly.
The Platform includes interactive learning objects that make learning fun, and intuitive. This is through games, puzzles, drag and drop objects, interactive audio and video.
A robust analytics engine is able to identify strengths and weaknesses of each kid at subject and topic level e.g. Maths >> Algebra, Arithmetic, Geometry English >> Comprehension, Grammar, Graphic stimulus, Reading. Teachers are able to save time otherwise spent marking paper based scripts and know in real time problem areas of each individual learner. We have also created interactive learning objects that make learning fun and intuitive. We believe the introduction of smart information and communication technologies can go a long way in addressing some of the challenges in the current education system.
The platform was developed by a group of education professionals, multi media specialists, Business Analysts and System Integrators.
