Harbinger Knowledge Products announced today that its award-winning e-Learning rapid interactivity builder tool Raptivity has been selected as one of the tools to power a leading education platform for schools in Hong Kong. Dubbed the “E4Learn System”, the platform is an ‘e-Toolkit for teachers’ that contains a learning management system (LMS) and a school-wide management system. The LMS is an all-in-one platform that supports schools in developing their own curriculum while the latter supports bookkeeping functions and student records. The system also includes mLearning and e-Books for students.
In a bid to reduce time to prepare lesson, manage and develop teaching material, the platform brings together materials prepared from inside and outside individual schools, and catalogs and indexes them along with providing teaching plan templates for easy access by teachers. With Raptivity being part of this system, teachers can use it to create SCORM complaint engaging content for students. The system is free for everyone, and they can register as teachers or students. An auto-match feature enables students to connect with registered teachers, and use features such as web-meeting.
“Raptivity is a wonderful addition to our E4Learn System. Our e-toolkits will help teachers in developing their own curriculum by searching teaching material inside and outside their schools,” said Harry Ngan of Top Link Asia Limited, the company behind E4Learn System. “For example, teachers can use Raptivity to create SCORM-compatible quizzes and share them on the LMS. Raptivity is also perfect to create an interactive multi-media e-Book because it publishes its output as a single flash file.”
Raptivity software turns eLearning into an enriching, interactive experience. The Raptivity library of over 200 pre-built interactions including games, simulations, 3D objects, virtual world interactions, videos and more, is based on best practices in instructional design. All interactivities are customizable and the content published by Raptivity is a single flash file, so it fits right into hundreds of eLearning tools and can be used anywhere. It is this flexibility that E4Learn platform hopes to benefit from by including Raptivity in its suite of course creation tools.
“We are very glad to be part of the E4Learn System, which will significantly improve the time for course creation and development of teaching material,” said Seema Chaudhary, President of Harbinger Knowledge Products Inc. “Raptivity is used worldwide in the education sector to improve speed of course creation on the one hand and learner engagement and retention on the other. Its use in the E4Learn platform will add tremendous value to schools in Hong Kong.”
