The academic world is shifting towards online and distance learning. This trend started some years ago and received a massive boost due to COVID-19.
Due to technological advancement and improved accessibility to computers, we anticipate universities will change the way they operate, including
teaching, learning and student-assessments. We address those academic needs by utilizing sophisticated software, and providing tools for academic
institutions to keep up with real-life demands.
Why are we quite sure about that?
Research has shown that effective learning is not achieved by requiring students to sit in front of a screen for hours upon hours*.
The likelihood is that professors will give students more assignments and tasks to explore and research as a way of creating an effective learning experience.
As the world begins to understand new methods of students’ knowledge evaluation are desired, together with modern trends of distance-learning and limitations on current schooling methods due to COVID-19, assessors are expected to be inundated with mountains of assignments for reviewing and grading.
This increasing workload on assessors calls for a revolutionary change in the tools academic institutions are utilizing to assess and evaluate student performances. Moodle Learning Management System offers very basic marking capabilities and the reality is that most assessors are forced to either download or print assignments submitted in Moodle and go through a laborious process of marking those assignments offline. Obviously this method has an impact on the speed, attention, quality and feedback that assessors are able to dedicate to each assignment.
Through years of intense collaboration with universities and colleges, we have developed an advanced LMS-based marking tool which seamlessly connects
directly to Moodle.
Not only can assessors mark assessments much faster, but provide the students with the rich feedback they deserve.
TomaGrade truly changes the status quo of
paper-based student evaluation.
