To enhance your e-learning experience, ProProfs has introduced online classrooms. Now you can create online classrooms to offer a central place for all your learners for accessing all their assigned quizzes or courses.
What is an Online Classroom?
By creating an online classroom with ProProfs, you offer a secure & centralized way to assign quizzes & courses to your learners. The learner logs into the online classroom with their secure & unique username / password. Once logged in they can see all the quizzes or courses you need them to take. They can also see what they have completed in the past including accessing their past scores, certificates, etc
Key Benefits Of Creating Online Classrooms:
- Easily teach & track the progress of large groups of learners (learn more..)
- Save time by centrally assigning course or quiz assignments (learn more..)
- Motivate learners to complete assignments with friendly reminders (learn more..)
- Send a single link to learners for accessing quizzes and courses (learn more..)
- Protect your quizzes and courses with secure rights of access (learn more..)
- Centralized portal helps learners self-access their learning (learn more..)
- Instantly send email notifications to Groups or Users (learn more..)
Once you create an online classroom with ProProfs, you can create Users and Groups, to organize and manage large batches of learners from a central location. You can separate learners as individual Users or club them into Groups. To create users simply enter email ids of learners (or student/employee ids). You can also create bulk accounts of learners by uploading from an excel sheet. This creates secure individual usernames & password for each learner. You can also track the progress of learners by viewing the reports and statistics for each User or a Group. These are additional reports that are available in classroom feature that show you all completed as well as pending activity for a user or a group.
To know more about how to create User and Groups and view their reports, see the video below:
Once you organize learners into Groups, you can quickly manage assignment of multiple quizzes or courses to them from a central place, instead of having to repeatedly assign the same course or quiz to different learners, one at a time. With all your courses and quizzes located in a central place, simply select which groups get access to which quizzes or courses. All members of the group will be able to access any quiz/course assigned to the group that they are a member of. For instance if you create a group for all students in particular class, simply assign the quizzes to the group and all students in that class will get access to it. Similarly you can create groups like “sales team” or “new hires” and assign courses to the group. Any member of the group gets access to the group assignments right away saving you hours of time.
The lack of supervision is considered to be a primary drawback of online classrooms. However, with ProProfs online classrooms you can not only supervise your learners but also motivate them. In the User and Group sections of a classroom, you will be able to view detailed reports of the quizzes or courses that have been taken or are pending for each learner or a group. You can quickly send a reminder to individual learners or a group, if you see that they have not completed the courses and quizzes assigned to them.
An online classroom is a centralized system through which you can grant access to your quizzes and courses, to any learner. But how exactly do you grant access to a learner/s? It’s a simple and swift process. You just send a single link to the learner. The learner always logs in using that single link to access any course or quiz.
Let’s say you need to share 15 quizzes. Instead of sending 15 links to each student, just send them the link to the classroom. When they log into the classroom, all quizzes accessible to them will appear in a list – ready for their access.
You can also send out bulk emails to a group with the classroom link. This way you do not waste your time and effort in manually sending a link to every learner. ProProfs online classrooms allow you to send a link with just a single click of a button.
Though your learners can access your online classroom from anywhere, anytime and from any device, they can only do so if they have secure rights of access. ProProfs allows you to create a unique username & password for each learner, which only they know. No one, not even the learner will be allowed to access your online classroom without providing these details. Moreover you can edit user details, change passwords or revoke access at anytime.
Your online classroom is more than just a library through which learners can access all the quizzes and courses that you have created. It’s more importantly a central place, where your learners can view detailed reports and key statistics which help them to self-access their learning progress. They can view the different quizzes and courses they have taken, the time they took to complete the test, their scores, their past certificates, as well as a full score report.
With ProProfs online classrooms, you can connect with your learners any time you want. The email notification feature in your online classroom allows you to send instant messages to learners informing them about a new course or quiz that you have created. The best part is that you can send bulk emails to many learners with just a single click of a button. It’s that easy.
