Quipper, a Japanese educational technology (edtech) platform, narrows down the benefits of utilizing different learning platforms. At a webinar held recently,
Tricia Anne Castro, edtech educator, said underscored the need for educational institutions to transform their strategy “from assigning to designing.” She said it is time for the system to evolve and sustain the discoveries during the lockdowns which forced schools to hold online classes.
Quippers webinars, conducted during Teachers Month highlighted how technology, gamification, and designer-learner approach can help evolve and elevate the system.
The online classes revealed the gaps in learning strategies that may be addressed using technology. Educators and students had to grapple with the challenges of navigating the digital space. As all sectors were unprepared for the disruption caused by the pandemic, the education sector had to deal with inadequate funds and an insufficient supply of equipment for a digital learning setup.
“The lack of resources and how we respond to that is through creativity,” Castro said.
As an online learning management system platform, Quipper designed its content to be aligned with approved curriculums for the Department of Education’s K-12 system. Some of its features include the automated checking of students’ activities and the item analysis feature for monitoring the performance of the class. It also features a content management tool for creating and publishing learning materials.
“Quipper is really an all-in-one package for the Filipino teachers and learners because we only not provide the learning management system but we also provide the contents that are fully aligned with the DepEd’s curriculum,” said Yusuke Takagi, CEO, Quipper Philippines.
