As countries around the globe are taking preventive measures by closing down schools to limit the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19), SABIS® has shifted to its full-fledged e-learning solution to continue to provide a top-quality education to students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 around the world.
Through the SABIS® Digital Platform (SDP), a teaching and learning platform, parents and students will access content shared with them daily and weekly to guide their learning. The platform is web-based and can be accessed anywhere, at any time, and from any device.
Students and parents can access the SDP on their tablets or computers, check their daily and weekly plans and detailed schedules, and download assigned material. Also available on their tablets are the SABIS® E-books, which feature digitized versions of student textbooks that include interactive activities, interactive dictionary entries, audios, and animations that keep students engaged and learning at all times.
SABIS® has also switched to using their digital management system, the SABIS® Student Learning Environment (SLE), which will allow students to attend full courses as well as take end-of-unit quizzes to learn and test their understanding. While students are working on the SABIS® SLE, teachers will be receiving real-time data on their progress and performance and be able to follow-up with their students accordingly.
Students will also benefit from attending lessons in Virtual Classrooms, which are live lessons broadcasted through Microsoft® Teams and available for specific core subjects. During these lessons, students will be able to interact with their teachers and can even revisit a recording of their lesson for future reference.
Taking it one step further, students who want to review a concept can also choose to access the SABIS® On-Demand Tutoring feature available on the SDP that includes a set of teaching videos explaining a variety of academic concepts. The videos, narrated by students themselves and vetted by the SABIS® Academic Development Department, allow students to review topics that they did not fully understand, were absent for, or want to review.
Learning is no longer limited to classroom walls! Through these e-learning solutions, SABIS® is transforming traditional learning and providing a fully interactive and engaging experience for their students and ensuring that SABIS® students around the world continue their education with confidence.
