Dallas, TX, November 01, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Grade Results, the leading innovator of live, online instruction, today announced several enhancements to its proprietary platform that make it even easier for instructors, students and parents to engage with each other and with the curriculum. Included in the enhancements are a new parent portal, an expansion of the My Submissions widget to include multimedia and a new syllabus program.
“One feature that is truly unique about Grade Results is our platform’s ability to unite a wide variety of forms of content delivery and social interaction into our system, providing multiple ways for the students to build knowledge and express that knowledge,” said Craig Ullman, COO of Grade Results. “Grade Results is highly effective in increasing student performance because each concept is reinforced by exposing the student to the content in a number of different ways. Additionally, Grade Results is built with powerful, easy to use features for teachers and parents to provide insight into student progress.”
The new Grade Results Parent Portal gives parents increased access to examine their children’s tests, retrieve lesson plans, review their essays and other projects -- even communicate directly with an online instructor.
“My Submissions” allows students to upload not just essays, but audio, video, spreadsheets and presentations for instructor review. The My Submissions tool serves as a student portfolio, where students, instructors and parents can review the entire body of work that a student has produced in a course.
“The My Submissions tool provides our students with more ways to learn in real world scenarios,” said Ullman. “For example, our foreign language instructors can leverage this applied learning by assigning students the task of practicing the language in a conversation and recording it. Then the student can upload the audio file for instructor review. Students are typically very technology savvy, and they enjoy being able to learn and apply the material beyond reading the textbook.”
Grade Results’ new syllabus feature is also multi-media enabled. It allows instructors to include multiple modalities within each lesson, combining live, interactive tutoring, with self-paced curriculum and supporting materials using video, audio, animations, illustrations and text. The result is a program built exclusively for the individual student with curriculum presented in the ways that work best for that individual student.
