LiberCloud is the only solution on the market that gives educators, teachers, professors, and content authors more control over their lesson plans. With LiberCloud you have the ability to make lessons and communications interactive and engaging.

Whether you are a teacher wanting more control of your content and a richer communication experience with students, or a school administrator wanting to implement an organization-wide solution, LiberCloud is the most flexible and easiest solution available.

You can use LiberCloud to employ many of the new learning methodologies advocated by experts. Blended Learning, Differentiated Learning, and Active Learning techniques are easier to implement with LiberCloud because of its design flexibility and ease of use.

How does LiberCloud facilitate Blended Learning?

What really sets the LiberCloud solution apart is the virtual animation studio that LiberCloud Canvas and its accompanying app, LiberCanvas, provide. LiberCanvas is an amazing app that lets you capture everything you write, draw or say, and then share your videos. You can use it in the classroom to capture your lessons, or offline to create tutorials to demonstrate concepts step-by-step. LiberCloud Canvas is the ideal tool for effective and practical blended learning.

By utilizing basic drawing and writing frameworks, to sketch ideas, draw, or annotate web pages or PDF documents using verbal and visual cues, anyone can design and automate an entire lesson, including adding voiceovers or other audio. What’s more, educators can provide annotation and animation tools to their students. This allows the students to add more content or interact with their teachers about the material through their personal computing devices.

Using LiberCloud Canvas with your front-room interactive whiteboard you can create planned or impromptu recordings during a class. You can then save and share with your students, peers, or the rest of the world with just a few clicks.

How does LiberCloud facilitate Adaptive Learning?

From a learner's perspective, LiberCloud creates an adaptive learning environment. Traditional training environments are based on the educator and the content which is relatively fixed and allows little room for improvisation or feedback. LiberCloud changes the dynamic in three important ways to make the learning environment more adaptive to the learner:

  1. The LiberCloud collaborative content creation platform enables the learner to annotate content and interact with the teacher or instructor, and co-create content with them. This makes for a far more engaging and stimulating education environment for students.
  2. LiberCloud Canvas allows students to interact in real time with the teacher, resulting in a more exciting and personalized experience.
  3. The rapid assessment tools in LiberCloud, coupled with the ability to easily create derived content and lessons, allow educators to tailor the teaching and adapt to each student's learning pace.

These features in combination make LiberCloud a far more compelling, collaborative experience and lead to more adaptive learning.

How does LiberCloud support Differentiated Learning?

Creating new content in LiberCloud is amazingly easy, as is customizing content to meet different learning needs, styles, and readiness. No two students enter a classroom with identical abilities, experiences, and needs. LiberCloud allows teachers to present information and knowledge in a multimedia format that includes text, visuals, diagrams, videos, slideshows, and interactive tutorials for every learning style. LiberCloud allows the creation of multiple versions of the assembled content for individual students, groups of students, or classrooms.

Using LiberCloud, students can access lessons from anywhere and play back the interactive tutorials as often as needed. Teachers can provide feedback to students through comments, annotations, and provide individualized assignments and exercises as extra challenges or to reinforce concepts. With its modular approach to assembling coursework, LiberCloud allows you to do all of these quickly by reusing material.

How does LiberCloud facilitate Active Learning?

The same LiberCloud tools and apps available to teachers are available to students. Teachers can assign homework or projects, and students can use the LiberCloud tools to complete their assignments or create their projects. Because LiberCloud is so easy to use, students will find the group project experience much more rewarding. Each member of a group contributes pieces which are then combined together to create effective group presentations. Projects can be shared with a broader audience than the classroom which encourages active participation.

As a way to keep track of assignments and tasks, LiberCloud allows students and teachers to plan the daily and weekly work, while giving them both a summary of all activities taking place in their teaching and learning social networks. This fosters further interaction and active learning opportunities.
