Flip your classroom and training sessions

What is flipped classroom training?

With the brick-and-mortar classroom model, learners would come to class, listen to the lecture and then go home to complete the home-works assigned to them by the instructor. Flipped classroom is a training methodology, which as the name suggests turns this model on its head. It makes learning student-centric rather than instructor-led.

By student-centric, we mean that students take online courses to learn new training materials outside of class. Instead of passively listening to lectures, they can watch the same lecture as a video from their homes. While in the classroom, students can use their time more effectively, discussing new ideas, solving problems and debating with their instructors and peers.

ProProfs helps instructors in creating a flipped classroom environment, by allowing them to solely focus on developing online courses, while ProProfs takes care of the rest. ProProfs Training Maker is a fully-hosted learning management system, where instructors can create courses and assign them to learners, at the click of a button.

In addition to an advanced LMS, ProProfs offers instructors powerful reports, which help them to effectively track the progress of learners. While tracking learners’ progress, instructors can also measure the impact of their courses and training with feedback surveys.

With ProProfs, a flipped classroom approach is possible because:

Learners can choose where and when they learn -  The online courses can be taken by learners from anywhere at anytime. They can pause the courses and complete them at a time when they are most receptive.
Tracking progress of learners is easy -  Evaluating the progress of learners is easy with advanced course and test results. Further, instructors can track detailed learning experiences with Tin Can API.
Diversity of training materials -  Instructors can use presentations, PDFs, videos and even wikis or blogs to create an online course. Learners can explore the materials on their own and develop conceptual understanding of the topics.
Feedback and improving instruction -  With ProProfs, instructors can develop not only courses and tests but also feedback surveys. This helps instructors to create personalized learning experiences for learners based on their feedback.

What’s in it for businesses?

Corporate instructors can incorporate a flipped classroom training model to speed-up the training process. Employees can take the online courses, which has all the introductory training content, during break hours or from their homes. This saves training time and also ensure trainees come well-prepared for the live training sessions.

With a flipped training model, corporate instructors can:

  • Easily schedule flipped training sessions at different locations
  • Save instructors fees, lodging and travel expenses
  • Save work hours by allowing anywhere, anytime training

What’s in it for teachers?

Flipped classrooms help teachers to make their class time more productive by keeping the major chunk of rote learning outside of the class. As an alternative to the lecture-driven model of instruction, learners are assigned online courses, which may consist of the classroom curriculum and other training materials.

With a flipped classroom model, teachers can:

  • Reduce their workload with automated grading of course tests
  • Allow learners to take courses when they are free and most receptive to learning.
  • Track knowledge gaps in the learning with advance reports
