E-lesson is a computer program designed to make school lessons fascinating, informative and effective. It includes illustrative material, worksheets with exercises, additional material, tests, study plans, lesson outlines, etc. The user of the program is a teacher who shows the corresponding material to students or hands it out to them. Teachers can complement and/or change the material.
What is it?
It is a compilation of all necessary material. The e-lesson USB drive contains the material of all the subjects and classes that a teacher teaches. Internet connection is not necessary for running the program but it is required for the updates.
E-lesson includes everything necessary for an informative and fascinating lesson: illustrative material, additional material, an example of the lesson’s structure, lesson outline, etc. Visual information has a relevant role in the e-lesson which includes a lot of videos, animations and pictures.
Teachers can complement and/ or change the material by adding pictures or text slides.
Presentations have been prepared for all the lessons. Teachers can concentrate on what is most important, i.e. teaching the lesson. The slides can be drawn on, stopwatch and timer can be projected to the students.
The study outcomes of 21% of the students in the test group have improved by using e-lesson.
E-lesson makes classes more fascinating for the students
Visual material helps the students to acquire the subject taught and catches their attention.
E-lesson helps to save time – teachers need less time to prepare lessons
95% of the teachers in the test group saved time spent on preparing lessons.
What does it include?
E-lesson includes illustrative material (videos, animations, simulations, maps, charts, photos, diagrams, listening tasks, etc) and an example of a lesson structure as well as topical and methodological outlines.
E-lesson contains references to other subjects or other textbooks dealing with the same topic in order to ensure an integrated study process.
E-lesson includes a lot of additional material (worksheets, additional reading, website links) as well as quizzes and tests with answers in order to differentiate teaching.
Lesson description and an example of homework which can be copied from the program help to make a summary of the lesson.
Study plans present the whole range of the corresponding class’s material.
How to use it?
In order to install the program insert the USB drive into the computer.
E-lesson can be opened by clicking on the icon, the USB drive has to be inserted during running the program.
Teachers can choose a lesson from the table of contents and open it.
Teachers can complement the lesson outlines.
A computer and a data projector are required for using the e-lesson in classroom. E-lesson will extend the screen automatically (the students see only the material the teacher wants them to see).
It is best to use the presentation mode for teaching. Thus the teacher only sees the most important keywords and slides.
Thanks to e-lesson my students consider geography one of their favourite subjects. They have enlisted the following reasons: cool videos; the topic is presented in a way that is very easily understandable; I realise that geography is interesting; I look forward to the next lesson and a new exciting topic; I like it that the lessons are diverse and never boring.
E-lesson helps me save a lot of time. Firstly, I no longer have to put together presentations myself – looking for pictures and videos used to be enormously time-consuming. Secondly, I like the fact that there is additional material for the faster and more ardent students in the e-lesson. I don’t have to look for that myself anymore either.
