Impactall launches the 3D app to revolutionise learning

deccan chronicle | April 22, 2019

To make learning effective, immersive, and enjoyable Impactall is launching the Impactall Classroom app for schools. Impactall provides educational 3D and VR app solutions. The app will help students overcome common obstacles faced while learning. Through 3D models, cross-sectional and longitudinal study will be enabled leading to a deeper understanding of subjects. The ease with which knowledge is imparted using the app encourages users to explore unfamiliar and challenging concepts and elicits curiosity.The Impactall Classroom app’s uniqueness stems from the fact it is not merely an extension of current pedagogic tools. Whereas most educational apps simply transpose information available in textbooks to a screen, Impactall’s app ignites a spark in students’ minds leading to improved cognitive capacity. Existing educational apps cover topics in predictable ways; however, Impactall’s app expands student’s consciousness allowing minds to link seemingly disparate information with ease. Students using the app grow curious about the world and continue learning even outside a formal learning environment. Rather than just teach a subject, the Impactall Classroom App allows students to improve their critical thinking and reasoning skills. When students learn using the app their creativity grows and they discover how to find novel solutions to practical problems.

EdTech Unicorn EEO Joins Hands with Peking University -- Redesigning learning experiences for the new digital-forward model of education

EEO | July 08, 2022

In July, 2022, with the support of EEO's hybrid technologies, Peking University successfully concluded the first academic year of its Global Open Courses Program in partnership with a list of distinguished institutions, including Tokyo University, Nanyang Technology University, Moscow State University, Waseda University, University of Granada, Osaka University, Ritsumeikan University, Chulalongkorn University, Cornell University, and Cairo University. EEO was founded in 2014 with the purpose of building an inclusive and student-centered learning ecosystem through the power of technology. Since 2019, EEO and Peking University joined hands to collaborate on digitizing physical learning environments, constructing specialized archeology classrooms, and adopting hybrid learning methods. It is a nonstop journey for EEO and Peking University to explore how to better motivate students and support educators in experimental teaching strategies. The project of Global Open Courses Program focuses on how hybrid learning gives rise to an enriched learning experience and expands learning communities. Hybrid learning, a method that incorporates hybrid technologies and open educational practices, has witnessed increasing adoption in K12 and higher ed institutions globally. Teaching Economics as part of the Global Open Courses Program, Professor Huang Yiping successfully engaged students in the classroom and those joining virtually with group discussions and activities. "Our professor came up with eight topics for discussion, encouraging us to form groups with students overseas. And we have been keeping in close touch with students online as well." Li Yipin, a student in Professor Huang's class, reported. For many, the program's hybrid courses placed vast learning resources within reach. With abundant course offerings, students had extensive opportunities to explore emerging topics with a cohort coming from diverse background. The platform of choice, ClassIn, is an all-in-one solution for online and hybrid learning with interactive virtual classrooms, a school management backend system, student learning reports, and more. Currently under internal testing, the product will support more innovative teaching methods by transforming into an LMS, a platform that caters to each step of the learning process in addition to the already powerful synchronous in-class interaction. It is evident that EEO's product family is designed with the consideration of scientific methods, masterful teaching, and lifelong learning. ClassIn, one of the first online classrooms in the world, was released in 2015. Building on feedback from educators and in-depth research, EEO released ClassIn X, a new hybrid solution for the new era. The company is also in the process of developing TeacherIn, a curriculum co-construction platform. It helps teachers find like-minded partners, with whom they can design and share lessons. As of now, EEO has partnered with more than 60,000 institutions around the globe and expressed great passion to collaborate with international educators and institutions, sparking the creativity of teachers and creating innovative learning experiences for students.
