Advanced Academics, a provider of eLearning solutions for middle and high school markets, premiered its ROADS online learning platform at NECC. The ROADS platform is designed for optimized “whiteboarding,” threaded discussions, audio and visual communications, and proprietary eMail so districts need not rely on an external eMail system. The “student locker” offers storage for learning materials, and gives students the ability to make notes and refer to it in the future. ROADS also offers easier navigation tools for review of the online content, the company said. Plus, student and course management components allow teachers and administrators to drill down to the minutiae of the content for a better understanding of student learning and performance.
