We search for Ed-tech Heroes and we found few

Eliademy is searching around the world for ED tech concepts, ideas, products and services that could change the world. We found one in Cyprus and we are here to tell you their story. As a company, we have no affiliation with MyBook Heroes but we see ambition and a good concept that can help kids, based on that we honour them by mentioning their service to our newsletters and social media. You should try them as well!

How to turn your kid into a Hero

MyBook Heroes offers customized children’s books, where the books will always star your child as the main character. This is made possible by a web platform which allows users to input a child’s name and choose an avatar, preview, and then a physical copy will be delivered for you and your little one to experience rich adventures. MyΒook Heroes opened their doors two weeks ago and have already sold hundreds of books, receiving great reviews and feedback.

 MyBook Heroes focuses on communicating life skills and simple philosophies to children in vivid settings. Lessons such as leadership, perseverance, and courage are taught in easy to grasp concepts. Children are able to visualize themselves overcoming obstacles and embracing new ideas. The books help to build their confidence and facilitate learning.

The founders believe that children might close their ears to advice, but open their eyes to examples. The life lessons presented in their personalized book will resonate with them, as the examples come in fun rhymes and colourful scenarios.

To help your little hero on their journey through the book, they will be accompanied by fantastic friends with their own unique personalities. The illustrations are vibrant, charming, and will leave your kids with a sense of wonder.

‘Only children believe they are capable of everything, so to us it is obvious that if we place them in the story and we add the lesson, we should have the best possible results in learning’ said D. Howard, illustrator at MyBook Heroes.

MyBook Heroes has claimed first place awards already in multiple innovation competitions. They joined IDEAcy the accelerator / incubator early 2017. IDEAcy is supported by the Bank of Cyprus.

The team is now actively looking for investors in order to expand internationally. If you are interested for further information regarding becoming a shareholder, please contact info@mybookheroes.com

Reading to kids at a young age offers positive neurological, educational, psychological, social and linguistic benefits. These benefits translate to academic success, love for learning and personal development. It also enhances development of social skills, self-awareness and boosted self-esteem.

The founders feel that children constantly compare themselves to unrealistic super heroes, which is not helping in trusting their own abilities. MyBook Heroes believes that by starring your child as the main character, the connection with the book is improved and the lessons are easier to adopt.

MyBook Heroes can be found at www.mybookheroes.com, or on their Facebook page and Instagram. You can contact them directly through their email info@mybookheroes.com

 

We are adjusting pricing, November 1st

Eliademy is adjusting our pricing to more accurately reflect the value users get from the service and to prepare the ground for groundbreaking updates (machine learning, popular requests such video recording).

If you are already a customer, this price change will not affect you; your current plan will remain the same until you decide to divorce us.

The changes will affect and be applied to all new customers, starting from 1st of November 2018. The price increase is as follows, from 5 euros per month for Admin user to 10 euros per month, and from 1 euro per user to 2 euros per user.

If your organization has 10 users then your annual cost will be:

120 euros flat free for admin user and 240 euros for the 10 users, 360 euros annual cost.

If your organization has 30 users then your annual cost will be:

120 euros flat fee for admin and 720 euros for the 30 users, 840 euros annual cost.

We want all of our users to be on annual prepayment plans so we have made the following sweet proposal: unlimited users, webinars and courses for only 500 euros per year. We recommend that you upgrade to the annual plan for big savings.

Again all current Premium customers will not be affected by this change and they can still use old discounted coupons to get annual prepayment at lower prices.

We believe this change will help us serve you better and provide updates in faster times and also reflect the current market situation. According to our benchmark, Eliademy.com has the best design, superb capabilities and offered as the lowest price that you can find, even after this adjustment in pricing.

Apua yritysten ongelmien ratkaisuun – ilmainen verkkokurssi!

1-9 hengen mikroyrittäjille on nyt saatavilla verkkokurssi, jonka pohjana on käytetty väitöstutkimusta 33 eri alan yritysten yhteisistä ja yleisistä ongelmista. Ongelmia on kartoitettu yhteensä huimat 690 kappaletta ja selkeästi monet niistä ovat yhteisiä kaikille yrittäjille.

Hugo Simberg

Verkkokurssi soveltuu sekä aloitteleville yrittäjille että kokeneille sarjayrittäjille ja mikä parasta se on ilmainen. Kurssi kestää n. 30-60 minuuttia (voit edetä omaa vauhtiasi ja tehdä vaikka osissa) ja sen aikana käydään läpi yhteensä 10 eri aihetta jotka auttavat sinua kehittämään oman yrityksesi kilpailukykyäsi.

Tavoitteeni oli luona kurssi joka on samalla helppo, nopea sekä tehokas. Toivottavasti onnistuin siinä, mutta otan mielelläni vastaan parannusehdotuksia.

ilmainen verkkokurssi!

Ultra Lean Business

Alla muutamia lyhyitä otteita kurssilta:

Helpoin, nopein ja tehokkain tapa oppia omista asiakkaista on ymmärtää miksi asiakas ostaatuotteita tai palveluja juuri sinulta, eikä esimerkiksi kilpailijaltasi.

Kaikki tekevät joskus virheitä tai epäonnistuvat tekemisissään. Usein ne koetaan negatiivisina asioina ja yritetään unohtaa mahdollisimman pian. Väärin!

Joku viisas on sanonut että “Riittää kun olet hieman parempi kuin kilpailijasi”. Tämä pitää usein paikkansa ja näin ollen menestymisellesi onkin tärkeää…

Yrittäjänä ja/tai toimitusjohtajana sinä olet vastuussa yrityksen suunnasta ja vauhdista – kukaan muu ei sitä tee. Liikkeelle kannattaa lähteä selkeän…

Maailma muuttuu kiihtyvää vauhtia ja muutoksen nopeus tulee kasvamaan myös jatkossa. Jotta pystyt parhaiten vastaamaan muutokseen, on tärkeää tuntea ensin oma toimiala ja siihen aiemmin liittyneet muutokset. Esimerkinomaisesti, keskitymme alkuun 3D-tulostukseen.

Tällä hetkellä vain noin 5-10% Suomalaisten yritysten liikevaihdosta tulee digitaalisesta kaupankäynnistä, mutta tämä osuus kasvaa kiihtyvää vauhtia. On ennustettu että digitalisaation myötä jopa 30-45% nykyisistä töistä poistuu (ja korvautuu muulla työllä) seuraavan 10-20 vuoden aikana, joten myös merkitys pienyrityksiin tulee olemaan huomattava

Celebrating 500.000 email invitations and an important notice

Eliademy today reached a new milestone. Over 500.000 email invitations were sent in the last 30 days. This is a significant milestone that keeps us running.

Because of the unprecedented amount of invitations and new users in the platform we have managed to shock the system. Therefore at the moment is hard to enrol to a new course from the public catalogue.

  1. Ask the user to create an account with Eliademy
  2. Navigate to the ADMIN page and click “User Admin”

  4. Go to “Manage enrollments” and then assign your users to the course
  5. Next time that the user will login will be able to see your course

Rest assured that the team is working hard to open up the catalogue to the FREE users in a short period of time. Until then you can ask from support@eliademy.com anything that could make your life easier. We are here to simplify and eager to serve you.

Advanced quizzes and assignments for your live online courses

Eliademy is a community-driven platform.  We have gotten over a thousand direct messages, votes and open suggestion on how we should improve course quizzes. Today, we are proud to announce the launch of a brand new quizzes and assignments interface. 

First, we have split all tasks on Eliademy into 2 distinct categories:

  • Assignments – a task that requires an answer from a student (an essay for example) which needs to be checked and graded by a course instructor
  • Quizzes – a task with a set of predefined questions that student need to complete on their own and get an instant rating

New quizzes highlights. For each quiz instructor can:

  • Add a welcome and closing message – text that students will see before and after taking a quiz (it can be used to specify pass rate, or give additional explanations for results)
  • Specify “start date” on which all students on the course will be able to see the quiz (by default start date is set to current date, if you would like to hide the quiz – please remember to adjust starting date)
  • Specify “due date” by which student have to complete the quiz
  • Allow or reject late answer – enabling this option, allows students completing quiz after the due date, but leaves a mark for instructor
  • Choose whether questing should be shown in sequential or random order for students
  • Specify amount of attempts a quiz can be taken

Quizzes have 3 types of questions:

  • Multiple-choice: a student needs to choose one or several correct answers for a question (please note that partially correct answers still counted as fail)
  • True/False: a student needs to choose weather statement in the question is true or false
  • Short Answer: a student needs to type a word, a number or a phrase as an answer to the question

Quiz questions types in live learning platform

For each quiz question an instructor can:

  • Add text, math formulas, media links and pictures (we have the same editing interface you use on the course)
  • Add a short explanation which student will see after answering the question
  • Change order of the questions in the list (in case you want students to complete quiz in sequential order)

When student starts the quiz and answers a question:

  • Correct answer and explanation will be shown immediately if student has only one attempt
  • For multi-try quizzes student will only see weather answer is correct or not after answering, and will see all correct answers and explanations only after sending quiz results

Student view with spoken english

We also have a new “results” interface for instructors – results of all students are shown in one dashboard along with an option to reset progress individually (to give one more extra try for a student).

LMS made in Finland

New assignments highlights.  Improvement to the assignments UX follows the same principle of a unified interface. As an instructor:

  • You have the same controls for start/due dates and late answers like on quizzes page
  • You see all results for all students on a single summary block right under the assignment

There is a noticeable change when it comes to task submission and grading. As of now, students can modify draft answer unlimited amount of times (upload documents, change text, etc). Once an answer is submitted, no further changes are allowed. However, course instructor can choose to give feedback and ask for corrections, instead of grading the answer right away. This will give an option to a student to improve answer and resubmit.

Tasks in Live learning platform

Linking tasks and topics

Last but not least, we have added an option to link tasks and topics. If you would like students to complete a certain assignment or quiz right after reading course chapter, you can admit by clicking “link task” from the footer. A panel with selected task will be displayed right under the content block.
