Learning Management Systems (LMS) have become a fundamental part of modern education. As the world moves towards digitization, institutions are turning towards technology to provide quality education to their students. CollPoll’s LMS is an innovative solution that can help institutions manage their academic processes with ease. It offers a variety of features that can help institutions streamline their academic processes, from course planning to online classes and assessments.
The platform is designed to cater to the needs of both educators and learners, ensuring that everyone has access to the necessary tools for effective learning.
Features of Learning Management System
CollPoll’s Learning Management System is designed to meet the evolving needs of institutions and learners. Here are some of the key features of CollPoll LMS:
1. Course Planner & E-resources
The Learning Management System empowers educators to create a comprehensive syllabus followed by auto-creating lesson plans as per the timetable schedule or manually defining the class schedule and mapping topic-level outcomes with each lesson. Faculties can store and share resources such as web links, video clips, and documents at the course module level. The LMS also enables the creation of module-wise course-level summaries and the collection of student feedback for each classroom session.
2. Lesson Planning (In class, Live Online & Pre-recorded)
CollPoll’s LMS provides educators with the provision to plan, create and manage online classes to support e-learning. The LMS seamlessly integrates with webinar/video conferencing tools, and educators can pre-record sessions and share them with students along with pre-read materials.
Students can attend live online classes, interact with their teachers and classmates, and ask questions in real-time, making the learning experience more engaging and interactive. The module gives teachers the flexibility to share their screens, conduct presentations, use interactive whiteboards, and even record their classes for future reference.
CollPoll’s LMS facilitates collaboration between learners and instructors through discussion forums, chat rooms, and video conferencing.
3. Take Attendance For Sessions
CollPoll’s LMS gives faculty the flexibility to easily manage attendance records and download attendance reports. With CollPoll’s Attendance Management System, administrators can easily alter the attendance statuses of students in bulk and manage attendance for exceptional cases. They can select multiple students and change their statuses at the same time. Faculty can mark the attendance status as:
- Present Late
- Medical Leave
- Do Not Consider Attendance (in case of late joining), and more depending on the institution’s requirement
- Specify late attendance taken by faculty on the basis of the end of the day & specific duration
Even if the faculty members do not have access to the internet, they can mark attendance, and the data will be updated automatically when they go online. However, this will only be feasible if the late attendance feature flag is not enabled.
4. Quiz Management
CollPoll’s LMS allows educators to create new quizzes for assessments and student self-learning, set up rules for timed quizzes, publish scores, and answer keys. Educators can also map quiz questions to particular course outcomes, topic level outcomes, and Bloom’s Taxonomy levels. The LMS provides the provision to create various question types such as MCQ single correct, MCQ multiple correct, match the columns, fill in the blanks, subjective, numerical, and coding/programming. Educators can create and add questions to the question bank with difficulty levels, tags, and marks and use the question bank to generate multiple sets of question papers.
The Quiz Management feature enables faculties to create quizzes and question banks with both subjective and objective questions, publish scores and answer keys, track submissions, and automated access grading.
5. Assignment Evaluation
CollPoll has collaborated with Turnitin, a renowned provider of academic assessment and integrity solutions. This empowers institutions to access Turnitin Similarity within CollPoll to verify the originality of written assignments submitted by students. Turnitin generates a score for plagiarism in these assignments, which allows faculty to assign scores based on the percentage of plagiarism detected. This automated evaluation tool also empowers faculty to manage assessments more efficiently.
6. Discussion Forums
CollPoll’s LMS offers the provision to conduct online discussions to extend learning beyond the classroom. Educators can conduct threaded discussions with features such as upvotes, views, and comments and enable graded discussion with moderators.
7. Faculty Gradebook
CollPoll’s Learning Management System (LMS) offers a seamless and hassle-free way for educators to manage assessments and track students’ progress. With the LMS, faculties can easily fetch scores of assignments and quizzes and create multiple internal components by selecting different assessment types and allocating appropriate weightage.
This feature makes it easier for educators to track their student’s progress and identify areas where they may need additional support. The LMS also offers a range of reporting options, allowing educators to download detailed reports for submission to the examination department.
8. Timely Assessment & Feedback
CollPoll’s online feedback management system helps institutions to collect feedback from the students, rate and analyze faculty’s performance, and reduce the strenuous work of physically examining the feedback pages of each and every student. This also significantly reduces the burden of keeping and maintaining the records on a manual basis while ensuring feedback privacy.
