FINTELO encourages individuals to communicate like never before by offering synchronous and asynchronous communication options all in one system! Utilizing real-time chat and threaded discussion groups, they pave the way for collaboration and build a sense of community among users.
Assessment Builder & Grade Book
FINTELO's full-featured assessment builder makes it simple to construct effective and engaging assessments. FINTELO's assessments provide several means to measure what a user has learned through graphics, drag and drop, matching, multiple choice, multiple answer, true/false, ordering, fill in the blank, and essay questions. FINTELO's assessments can be manually or automatically graded in the grade book - saving you valuable time!
Intended Learning Outcomes
Establishing intended learning outcomes for each course or workshop, and/or lesson, provides benefits to its users. Explicitly-stated intended learning outcomes increase learners' awareness of what's required of them, allows teachers and trainers to evaluate and enhance their own teaching and curriculum, offers common ground for organizational departments, helps meet accreditation requirements, and provides the framework for course/workshop design and revision. FINTELO incorporates learning outcomes within every lesson that then can be aligned with the course/workshop intended learning outcomes.
Learning Centered Framework
Online courses, when developed most effectively, will focus on learning. For deep teaching to occur, learners construct their own learning and become "active" and fully engaged in the learning process. FINTELO's foundation rests on current teaching and learning theory, as exemplified in FINTELO's Teaching & Learning Cycle. FINTELO guides teachers and trainers to design an online experience centered around the learner by systematically aligning tasks, assignments, and discussions to the course or workshop intended learning outcomes.
FINTELO's reports provide teachers and trainers with pertinent information about the performance and participation of their users - allowing them to visualize the needs of their learners - and can be used as a tool for decision making. Reports can be generated in today's most convenient formats!
Virtual Office & Binder
FINTELO's Virtual Office consists of a bookshelf, monitor, and binder. The Virtual Office allows users to easily navigate between courses/workshops, perform many key activities within FINTELO, and visually manage all their course/workshop information via announcements, tasks, calendar, grades, and much more.
In addition to chat and threaded discussion groups, FINTELO has a feedback feature. Feedback is a great system that facilitates meaningful discussion between learners and their teachers/trainers about particular work items - what's working or not working - allowing teachers and trainers opportunities for mid-course corrections to enhance learning. FINTELO's feedback feature is available for every assignment and/or assessment
