The virtual absence of frequent bi-directional communication constitutes one of the educational establishment’s most serious structural weaknesses.
Traditional educational systems invest substantial resources in assessing their students but tend to lack solutions-based assessments of themselves. This is one of the reasons education is so resistant to improvements.
OLE’s Personal Learning System includes built-in assessments from learners, leaders, and educational administrators to evaluate the effectiveness of the learning resources. Learners and Leaders are able to observe and respond in real time to these data as they concern their learning progress and that of their teams. Analyses of these data, by age, gender, language, role and location, with individual identities confidential, can be seen online by those with authorized access. Course leaders can track the progress and error of learners, step by step, and identify parts of their courses that need improvement.
