Effectively implementing digital tools in the education field is boosting educational innovation. In this new era of learning, LMS or web platforms play an indispensable part both inside and outside the classroom and have become a support structure for teachers and students.
LMS and LCMS platforms are able to gather all the digital resources necessary for a 3.0 class into a single space and essentially turn classrooms into engaging and interactive places that expand far beyond the four walls of the classroom. This also allows all kinds of e-learning: online, blended and networked classrooms, and various methodologies (flipped classroom).
As stated in the academic agreement “The importance of Educational Technology Teaching”, Dr. Lazar Stošić (College of Academic Studes Dositej), “technology plays a big role in education, but are teachers and students aware of all the tools available to them?”
Now, more than ever, the role of educational technology in teaching is critical given the use of information and communication technologies. With the help of several applications for online learning, teachers and students can experience the benefits of educational technology…But are they aware of all of its benefits?

4 e-learning digital tools for a 3.0 classroom
#1 VCR (Virtual Classroom)
CAE’s specialized language platform keeps teachers and students connected remotely through its virtual classrooms. This system is integrated into an educational LMS, and allows you to teach live classes (audio and video).
When combined with language training content, new features developed especially for language learning are added, such as access to lesson plans.
#2 Monitoring and Assessment
The CAE’s e-learning platform monitors student performance so that teachers and tutors have real-time access to their students’ progress.
In terms of assessment, the LMS automates the entire process, saving teachers time on the tasks they spend the most time on. In addition, it allows teachers to generate partial and final tests and give immediate feedback.
When the LMS is combined with language lessons, monitoring and assessment are both done by language skill, which allows teachers to stay aware of their students’ weaker areas so they can work on them.
Keeping students motivated is a prevalent issue that causes the most headaches for teachers and tutors, given the high dropout rates these days. To address dropouts, the Voluxion + Dexway platform integrates a gamified motivation and coaching system so that students stay interested until the very end of their course.
It is organized through interactive and structured content that allows students to advance progressively, utilizing a badge system where you can set objectives, measure achievements and earn corresponding rewards.
#4 Virtual Campus with 24/7 Online & Offline Access
The CAE LMS is a cloud-based educational platform with downloadable apps that work with or without an internet connection (you need to connect only once every 30 days). Teachers and students can access the course at any time and from any web browser on a PC, Mac, Android or iOS device.
CAE’s language learning solutions include LMS and LCMS platforms, interactive language content and specialized digital authoring tools so you can provide the most comprehensive language teaching.
