Intelligent educator tools to track progress, evaluate outcomes and customize courses
English Discoveries places a full set of user-friendly management tools in the hands of teachers to help maximize effectiveness and ensure student success.
The Teacher Dashboard is the command and control center in Edusoft’s data-driven learning environment. Educators can instantly monitor both class and individual progress, with real-time report generation to track task completion, test scores, and students’ time spent on tasks.
The customization tools enable instructors to create lessons from existing content building blocks, while giving them the option to develop and deliver their own content.
Extend online learning into the classroom
Bringing the classroom to life, English Discoveries’ class-based resources reinforce student proficiency across all modes of communication, and fortify skills acquired from the online experience. All of the in-class materials, including workbooks, practice assignments, and group exercises, fully integrate with, and build upon the online content. This synthesis enriches learning, encourages students to apply what they have learned, and inspires them to achieve the next level of mastery.
Academic and vocational instructor materials, such as syllabi, lesson plans, answer keys, and teacher guides, supplement teachers’ classroom activities, and position teachers for success.
