IntelligentEducation.com offers a free online course creator for educators
AUSTIN, March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — During the current education crisis, schools, universities and colleges are closing campuses and moving classes online, leaving educators with a difficult task: how to do online courses quickly and easily.
smart education offers the solution, with intuitive tools that help teachers, instructors, and educators of all skill levels create high-quality online courses with as little as a smartphone and a well-lit, quiet room. Most remarkably, Intelligent Education offers these lesson creation tools totally free:
In response to this unprecedented need among educators for professional courseware authoring tools, Intelligent Education is moving the launch date of its toolset from this summer to today. Intelligent Education, founded in 2018, began creating professional-grade online courses and educational materials for college professors, K-12 teachers, and homeschool audiences. Now, to meet the current need, it is making these tools freely available to educators.
“Intelligent Education’s goal was to provide free and easily accessible educational materials to enthusiastic learners around the world,” says Dr. Jed Macoskoacademic director of Intelligent Education and assistant professor of physics at Wake Forest University. “That’s still our goal. But with 30 courses available today from professors from top universities, we’re opening up our platform to help educators who would otherwise be stuck with the urgent task of creating online courses. By putting the tools we use available to all educators, they can now create high-quality lessons quickly and easily, just like us, using readily available equipment, rather than bothering you with software and hardware difficult to use, do what you love to do: teach!”
Speed and ease of creation doesn’t mean settling for inferior quality. With Intelligent Education courses, you can easily add visual aids (notes, pictures, and video) and even display picture-in-picture during your lesson. Each user portal account includes Google Cloud storage for videos. Closed captioning and time-stamped transcripts are also available (small fee applies).
“Educators at all levels, from elementary school teachers to college professors, who need to move to online classes need a solution now“, says Macosko. “Because we appreciate their work, we have chosen to reverse our entire model for them to benefit from during this difficult time.”
