STRUCTURE OF A SCHOOL SYSTEM
Unlike many other LMS platforms mCourser is capable of replicating virtual structure of a school system of a particular region or country. Starting from the central platform operator (e.g. Educational Publisher or Ministry of Education) through districts, schools and classes up to a single interaction between a teacher and a student.
within the mCourser Platform
Student is the most elemental, yet the most important role in the system. Student accounts can be organised in groups and classes and can have access to a number of courses or eContent packages assigned by the Teachers.
School Admins are responsible for creation of virtual representation of their school. They can link Teachers with their Students, and deploy learning materials. They can also monitor and generate reports on Students’ and Teachers’ activity.
The Teachers registered within the platform have a number of possibilities to assign tasks, organise projects or arrange tests for their Students. Since they have full access to Students’ activities, they can monitor their progress and address areas that require extra explanation or additional practice.
The Schools are usually supervised by local educational organisations or School Districts who want to know more general information regarding schools’ activity and their average or aggregated results. They can also organise tests and exams for selected (or all) schools under their supervision.
mCourser enables linking Students’ accounts to Parents’ accounts, so that Parents can see their pupils’ learning progress, attendance, the school news board and are able to contact the Teacher at any time.
The Platform Admin has full access to all platform capabilities. They can create virtual schools representing the real schools’ structure in their territory. Platform Admin also controls what eContent packages are deployed within the platform and accessible by particular users.
Assignments allow Teachers to create class tasks or homework exercises either for individual Students or for a whole Class. Extensive reports allow Teachers to assess performance of a whole Class in a glimpse of an eye. Instant access to the smallest details of every activity enables them to implement individual approach to specific needs of a particular Student.
Thanks to the Contests option, mCourser enables holding competitions, test or exams. In this mode Students are given exact time to complete a test on a basis of selected material from the eContent packages deployed in the platform or from the materials created by their Teachers within mInstructor service or simply based on any SCORM compliant package imported into the mCourser platform.
mCourser is equipped with a number of functionalities that facilitate group work, common projects and collaboration between the Students. The School Admin can determine which collaboration units are to be available to the Students.
This module enables Teachers or School Admins to announce important messages or simply present interesting information concerning the school community. It can be also used as a regular Newsletter, prepared and edited by authorised users.
Teachers and Students can make their own repository of files documenting their work. mCourser allows them to upload various resources and link them with the content available on the platform to create a complete archive of class projects or group assignments. Teachers have full access to the Student’s Portfolio and they are able to download its content or add more files to it.
The Messenger module can be used as an equivalent of email service available for all Students and Teachers of particular school. It keeps track of all correspondence and can be used to support and document common projects or team tasks.
The Chat module enables all users registered within a virtual School to communicate in a real-time mode. The Chat recognises who is currently logged into the mCourser platform and allows users to initiate instant conversation or even a group discussion. It can be used to organise “Teacher on Duty” service available to the Students who need extra support.
Calendar is a useful feature that helps organizing and controlling the actual workload, projects and assignments milestones and due dates, group or individual events. Calendar can be accessed by different roles within the platform to inform about events relevant for the school, class, assignment or even a single Student.
“You can’t manage it, if you can’t measure it.”
The mCourser platform offers generating a vast number of valuable Reports for all different roles deployed within the platform. The Reports are presented in a from of clearly designed tables, plots, charts and dashboards depending on the role of a particular user.
Each Student has full access to their results obtained during a selected period of time. The Student can also see all portions of the eContent material that they accessed with a full insight to the answers provided while solving the activities.
The uniqueness of mCourser comes from the fact that, besides the aggregated reports, a Teacher has the possibility of observing each piece of the eContent accessed by a particular Student. Thanks to this option the Teacher can learn individual Students’ difficulties and address them accordingly by suggesting additional materials or giving direct hints, instructions or explanations.

Big Data in Educational Publishing
Thanks to the fact that mCourser is a Cloud-based solution it is possible to gather enormous number of data collected from all interactions of Students with the eContent deployed on the platform. Such approach opens completely new possibilities for Educational Publishers.
mCourser collects and stores millions of results of the highly interactive activities solved by thousands of Students every day. Having access to such a huge database of information enables Publishers to use it in a large variety of ways.
First of all Publishers can test and verify the efficiency of the materials that their publishing teams have prepared for each subject, chapter, lesson, page or even a single activity.
By observing how Students are doing with their digital textbooks and tracing:
how much time they spend solving particular activity,
how many mistakes they do while interacting with it,
exactly what type of mistakes they make,
how many times they ask the system for a hint or to show the correct answer.
Publishers or editors responsible for creation of their digital textbooks can assess:
if their materials clearly and effectively present the concepts and ideas that they were created for,
how difficult it is for Students to understand the concepts presented,
what particular part of the electronic page or activity creates a problem for them or which one is not challenging enough.
Having all this information, publishers and editors can constantly improve the quality of their electronic textbooks. Therefore, instead of waiting for the next edition of the paper based textbook, they can do all corrections and improvements practically in real time by simply updating the eContent.
Moreover, access to such a huge information allows Publishers to make variety of statistical analyses in different segments and groups and check for example what are the differences between Students in different locations, large towns vs. villages, or between Students of particular background, skills, abilities or even disorders. Knowing this, Publishers may prepare their materials accordingly or even approach next “BIG THING” in modern, digital education – ADAPTIVE LEARNING.
