» myClass

myClass is a simple yet modular tool for teachers to make records about classroom activities and competence development. The idea is to equip teachers with a handy tool, tailored to small screen (such as smartphones) to enable them to make records about relevant activities and indicators of learning independent from other digital system. In that sense, myClass is a competency-oriented electronic classbook. The original and full version of myClass has been developed in the context of a prior project. In Lea’s Box we have reduced the functionality and tailored the tool to the very concrete needs of partner schools of the project. myClass offers features for competency tracking and basic reporting features. Of course, the tool has built in API towards the Lea’s Box platform. myClass comes with the fully functioning configuration tool for administrators.

Technically myClass is a MySQL and PHP-based tool so that an installation is very simple and quick. myClass is available open source under the Apache 2.0 license. Instructions are included in the download package.

Version 1 allows defining competency hierarchies and the evaluation of competencies with 3 buttons (not evaluated, competency available, competency not available). Also the report is based on this approach.

The Open Learner Modelling (OLM) system of Lea’s Box is a complex tool to model learners, conduct learning analytics, and visualize the results. The special strength of the OLM is that is opens the analytics processes to the learners and that it makes the result transparent; it allows users to select the appropriate visualizations and to start from high level aggregations and drill down into the very details of evidences for learning. The OLM system technical is a JAVA application running on an Apache Server and connecting to a MySQL database. The download package contains detailed instructions. The OLM system is is available as open source package.

Presently the tool is in Czech language and illustrates the use on the example of 4 subjects (English, Czech, Maths, and meta-competencies).

» Canvas Import

Canvas is one of the leading commercial Learning Management Systems. More and more organisations use this tool to deploy learning and training materials. For those who use and work with the Lea’s Box system it might be a useful option to import data from Canvas. This, however, is not completely straight forward since Canvas does not allow a direct link. A workaround we developed and used during the project is an import tool. In fact this is a set of php procedures to parse the csv export from Canvas and to place the information in the right slots of the Lea’s Box database. These function are available freely. They can be adjusted to your server configuration in the file config.php.
