Thinkific is a subscription-based SaaS e-learning platform that allows instructors to build courses and students to enrpl in them. Instructors have access to an interface that allows them to create courses, promote them, and track enrplment through statistics. They can also provide students with additional resources, such as videos, lecture notes, and quizzes. Students have access to an interface where they can view their coursework, download course material, and interact with instructors via message boards.
The integration of Skype for Business® and Thinkific® allows instructors to deliver web-based training courses to students. Traditional, in-person classroom training can be supplemented by online training courses so instructors can reach more students at a lower cost. This strategy also allows students to participate in training courses outside of normal classroom hours.
Instructors can use Skype for Business® to broadcast lessons online for students to view, participate in discussions, take quizzes, participate in ppls, etc. The instructor can then give the student feedback using Thinkific®’s messaging system. Instructors can also record video lectures using Skype for Business® and upload them to Thinkific® for student viewing.
One-on-one instructor/student experience – Students are able to ask questions directly to their instructor without having to wait for answers after class ends. Their instructor can provide real-time feedback during the lesson. This immediate feedback improves the learning process by allowing students to quickly adjust their studying based on their instructor’s suggestions. Additional student interaction – Students can talk with other students enrpled in the course about what they are learning. This level of interaction cannot be replicated in traditional classroom settings. Improved student retention – Having access to information outside of classroom hours will encourage students to complete coursework on time so they do not lose out on valuable course content. Additional student participation – Students who are unable or unwilling to attend classroom sessions can still participate in courses by watching videos, downloading software, etc., which will encourage them to finish coursework faster. Traditional classroom instruction supplemented by online learning – Instructors can supplement traditional classroom instruction with online courses that expand class time and provide additional resources for student training. This strategy will save instructors money because it reduces travel costs while expanding available class space. Reduced overhead costs – Instead of having multiple instructors teach the same course at separate times, the same instructor can teach the course several times throughout the semester or year, depending on how often it is offered. This will reduce overhead costs because fewer instructors are needed.
