Intenexia’s core business is to develop solutions to improve teaching and learning. We start from understanding learning needs and determining the learning objectives. We design systems and provide resources to support learning to enable individuals and groups to realise their learning goals and raise their learning achievements.
- People learn better when they are actively engaged.
- Content and activities are logically structured.
- Design and knowledge are shared.
Different pedagogical techniques are used to achieve different learning outcomes. Below are some basic concepts:
- Self-directed learning help to create deeper, swifter and more effective learning
- Collaborative work, maybe using a forum, focuses on cognitive development
- Small group work, perhaps a research project, allows analysis, synthesis and evaluation
- Case studies or simulations based on the real world allow for practical thinking, comprehension and application of knowledge
All learners are different with different ages, experiences, abilities, knowledge and types. The learner will dictate the methods employed. For example, we would present real-world examples to learners with high inductive reasoning skills before giving them access to conceptual material. Similarly, for learners with high social skills, we would favour implementing synchronous interactions (e.g. chat or video conferencing) over asynchronous interactions (e.g. email).
Internexia will work with the client to develop a high level use case diagram. This is accompanied with descriptions containing the essential design elements, pedagogy / learning type, description / context, learning objectives, roles, content types, services, collaborative activities, learner activity workflow / interactions and assessment.
