Scaffolding and zone of proximal development
Learning is enhanced when it is done in collaboration with others. GetSmarter facilitates social learning through incorporating rich discussion and community-building tools into the learning experience.
GetSmarter leverages the latest advances in online learning technologies to offer a rich and engaging learning experience. All learning activities result in data that is analysed and used to inform learning design decisions, remediation strategies and support.
High-touch support
Even the most dedicated learners can experience difficulties in staying focused during their studies. GetSmarter's high-touch support model dramatically increases learner motivation and completion rates through personalised support from dedicated course coaches. Furthermore, learners have ongoing access to Instructors, who are experts in their respective fields.
GetSmarter’s modular, goal-orientated course structure creates a disciplined approach to learning. Learners are given regular, achievable milestones to ensure that their goals are realised and their motivation is maintained.
Pedagogically-driven learning design:
Underpinning GetSmarter's online learning model is a predominantly constructivist approach to learning design. The learner is seen as an active participant in creating knowledge, and learning activities focus on engagement rather than instruction.
Applied learning
To encourage meaningful learning, knowledge needs to have practical application and relevance. GetSmarter takes a proactive approach to designing learning activities around real world situations to foster relevant, concrete skills development.
