21st Century Learning: Overlapping, Non-Linear, Component Driven, Adaptive
Use your own courses or utilize Mekumi’s custom courseware offering. We work with the industry leaders in education to offer you courses for K-12 Learning, Vocational Training & Personal Growth segments.
Mekumi revolutionizes education by automating best practices. Teachers are given vetted, tested courseware. This is what makes our platform a true “plug and play” application. Preloaded courses come with 21st century tagging of all lessons, as well as a Master Question Bank that teachers use to generate assessments.
What sets our courseware apart from other learning management tools out there?
The Mekumi platform can recognize the most effective teaching in a particular school, training centre or learning partner. Once Mekumi captures the lessons working best for your community, administrators can design lessons to integrate best practices in real time. Educators are inspired by the ability to always improve and truly deliver the most effective curricula to their students.Mekumi solutions were specifically developed to address the complex teaching and learning requirements. The courses that do exist do not have the right mix of practical and theoretical concepts.
Even when they do, it is difficult to have consistency in teaching across teachers/classes/students with the classroom tools of today. Measurement of student performance in such blended / immersive courses is challenging. Development and Measurement of soft skills is almost non-existent. Connecting students and teachers to industry mentors and partners is adhoc. Our platform addresses each of these issues, making the deployment of programs a satisfying experience for educators instead of a headache.
Our innovative AR/VR/XR training content creation and delivery system removes the need for expensive capital equipment for training and thereby removes the capacity barrier, while delivering a deeper learning. Mekumi has developed a new system for vocational training that resolves issues associated with in-person teaching sessions, one-off apprenticeships, printed manuals and minimal video work. Our system’s range of technologies include augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and extended reality (XR). This foundational system will be the basis for vocational training for next 50 years as it has built in capabilities to incorporate new technologies as they emerge.
Lessons in the Mekumi LMS platform are tagged with 21st century skills markers. Students, teachers and administrators can view the progress of individual students, classrooms or schools by job skills markers. This reveals each student’s strengths and also what skills they should improve to be ready for the workforce.
The Mekumi learning management system provides teachers with the technology to invite background-checked industry mentors from the real world to dialogue with students. Mentors discuss specific careers in the context of lessons being taught in students’ onsite or virtual classrooms.
After an initial dialogue, mentors can continue to speak with students via chat. As both a safety precaution and to reinforce student learning, teachers are able to view all communications.
The Mekumi platform enables students to rate their industry mentors. This helps ensure that educators are inviting experts who resonate with students.
When students understand the real-world applications of what they’re learning, they are more likely to persist in academic work and more likely to complete any certifications. They are also more likely to end up with jobs by the time they graduate, since they have the opportunity to establish relationships with people in their desired industry.
Schools spend $2.2 Billion recruiting and training new teachers. The high cost is due to extremely high turnover.
Mekumi reduces this expense to school systems by the best lesson plans in an easy-to-edit format to all new teachers.
With the auto-sharing feature, teachers can view their colleagues’ lesson plan sequences in real-time. This provides the meaningful support that new teachers need. It also helps build a collaborative community among teachers in a school district who are teaching the same course.
Mekumi automatically documents all iterations of each lesson plan, and then displays this data to administrators in real time. You’ll know which lesson plans are most effective, when you see them being copied over and over by other teachers. You can then incorporate the best edits into your courses. Mekumi commends teachers for the number of times their lesson plans are used by other teachers every week.
Everyone in your system is tied to the same database of information and you’ll receive standardized reports to give you the data you need to make better decisions for your district and students.
