Liberté, Egalité, et Fraternité: Eliademy Launches in French

French Launch

Revolution– described as a change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time- happens not just for political or economic purpose but also for any desired change in our everyday lives. In the revolution to make education more accessible and open through technology, Eliademy and its entire community of instructors and learners have succeeded in translating the platform to French.

As the school season starts, we encourage the entire French speaking community to start teaching and learning through Eliademy in French.

Merci beaucoup!

On behalf of Eliademy Team,

Joseph

Eliademy, 一款云端课堂的电子学习系统正式投放中国市场!

China launch 2

为了支持中国在2011到2020年的应用信息技术于教育系统的的官方计划,一款来自欧洲的大型开放式网络课程平台 Eliademy 正式投放中国市场,为中国城市和农村的学校提供免费的电子学习平台。

Eliademy 是一款免费在云中运行的在线网络教室,教育机构,企业以及个人均可以用它创建课程,分享和管理课程培训内容。 Eliademy 基于开源技术和 Moodle (模块化面向对象的动态学习环境),这也使得很多机构可以用 Eliademy 继续使用 Moodle,但同时却可以享受更加整洁,更加活泼且吸引人的用户界面。除此之外,由于移动设备早已经成为我们日常生活中的一个重要组成部分,所以 Eliademy 还提供了一个移动应用程序,为移动学习者提供个性化的学习体验。

Eliademy 的移动客户端,编号为 Huxley, 可以和 Moodle 的学习管理系统共同使用,这意味着学生和导师可以在任何地方都能够使用相同的应用程序访问学校的课程内容。

Eliademy 在中国市场的投放,是向公司使命:“让科学技术广泛应用于教育!”迈出的重要一步。“我们需要中国的教育家和学者和我们一起创造全球最大的教育社区。“Eliademy 的开发公司 CBTec 的 CEO Sotiris Makrygiannis 先生这样说。

自从 Eliademy 在今年二月份正式发布之后,CBTec 不仅一直增加产品特色,同时也在致力维护与政府以及 NGO 之间的合作。目前 Eliademy 拥有来自超过 150 个国家和地区的学者,教育家组成的社区;每周有超过 2 亿人用包括拉丁语在内的13 种语言访问和使用量。此外,Eliademy 还增加了更多的教学功能:比如设计多种评估方式、兼容世界上最大的学习管理系统 Moodle、设计了安卓系统下的移动应用,让移动课堂在学习者的掌心。为了让更多更广泛的学者和教育家都能够了解并使用 Eliademy,Eliademy 也开展了与各大组织的合作,例如商科类学校和课程认证委员会 (ACBSP),LEAD AaltoAIESECTIVIT , FiBS(芬兰最大的企业社会责任感网络)。

Eliademy 是 CBTec Oy 公司开发的产品,CBTec Oy 坐落在芬兰,由诺基亚的前开源业务总监 Sotiris Makrygiannis 联合创办。该公司员工约 22 人,来自11个不同的国家,每周都会持续发布产品的新功能。

到 2050 年,就会如欧盟所提“虽然世界上各个不同的地方都存在学习活动,但是物理校舍仍然不会消失,还会存在。然而,孩子们不会在传统的课堂,取而代之的是虚拟的学习空间,在这个虚拟的学习空间,互动和游戏成为了学习的工具。”而我们正是要成为这场比赛的领跑者,从为教育机构提供免费的学习管理系统开始,扩展到大规模在线开放式课程,和欧洲以及中国的大学合作伙伴们一同完成这个使命,一同进步!

Eliademy ahora disponible en Latín

Latin Launch

El equipo de eliademy está feliz de comunicar el lanzamiento de nuestra plataforma de e-learning en idioma Latín. Lo anunciamos como parte del lanzamiento de la aplicación móvil hace pocos días. Aunque pocas personas en el mundo hablen Latín (lengua oficial en Vatican City), nos gustaría hacer del aprendizaje online, una herramienta disponible para este grupo.

Interesantemente, 60% de las palabras usadas en el idioma inglés, han sido descritas como originadas del Latín, y el hecho de tener un conocimiento vivo de la gramática y vocabulario del Latín puede mejorar considerablemente nuestras habilidades para aprender y entender en otros idiomas similares. En el lanzamiento, Eliademy destacó que una de sus estrategias de hacer de la plataforma una herramienta útil en idiomas locales y el crecimiento acelerado de idiomas agregados ha sido impresionante. El lanzamiento en el idioma Latín ahora hace un total de 14 idiomas incluyendo Español, Finés, Inglés, Ruso, Portugués, Vietnamita, Serbio, Filipino, Lituano, Hindi, Kazakh, Croata y Montenegro. Con más idiomas por agregar en la lista, Eliademy posiblemente alcanzará los 40 idiomas para finales del 2013.

Eliademy es un salón de clases en la nube, alunas veces llamado sistema de gestión, que apoya a educadores y estudiantes, permitiéndoles crear, compartir y gestionar cursos gratuitamente. La misión de Eliademy es democratizar la educación con tecnologpia. Eliademy es desarrollado en Finlandia, líder global en educación, por CBTec, una compañía fundada a principios de 2012 por un equipo compuesto por veteranos ex-Nokia y Meego.

¿Conoces a personas que enseñen o aprendan en Latín? ¿o personas particularmente interesadas en el lenguaje? Simplemente comparte este desarrollo con ellos o comenta en la parte de abajo.

Eliademy Now Supports Latin, Yes Latin

Latin LaunchThe team at Eliademy is happy to announce the release of Eliademy, our e-learning platform in Latin. We announced as part of our mobile launch few days ago, that even though very few people in the world speak Latin- an official language in the Vatican City, we will like to make online teaching and learning through Eliademy possible for this group.

Interestingly, 60% of English words had been described to emerge from Latin and having a keen grasp over Latin grammar and vocabulary can vastly improve ones ability to learn and understand in other similar languages. At launch, Eliademy stressed that one of its strategies is making the platform usable in local languages and the pace of language roll out has been impressive. The release of Latin now makes the total number of languages 14 including English, Finnish, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Serbian, Filipino, Lithuanian, Hindi and Kazakh, Croatian and Montenegro. With more languages in the pipeline, Eliademy might be reaching over 40 languages by the end of 2013.

Eliademy is a classroom in the cloud, sometimes called learning management system, that support educators and students, enabling them create, share and manage courses for free. Eliademy’s mission is to democratize education with technology. Eliademy is developed in Finland, global leader in education by CBTec, a company founded in beginning of 2012 by Ex-Nokia Meego team.

Do you know people who teach or learn in Latin? or people particularly interested in the language? Simply share this development with them or comment below.

Eliademy: free online classroom from Finland now available in Portuguese.

brazil launch 1

Launched recently in Latin America, published on important blogs and newspaper around the region and growing  around the world since its release, Eliademy launches its service in Portuguese. This development adds one more to the already extended list of languages available on the platform to reduce limitations to adopting the learning system and make education accessible for all.

Eliademy is a free online classroom service that supports educators and students, allowing them to create, share and manage course. Why is it different from the rest of the platforms? Eliademy brings to the course management and online education an intersection of good design and engineering that engages students and motivates instructors to teach

This tool can be used as a learning environment for universities, schools and organizations, where both parts can establish a participatory communication through the web; thanks to options like image sharing, multiple files on different formats, news feed, notifications and calendar events anytime and anywhere. With these features, teachers can motivate their students in a practical and interactive way that changes the way we learn.

Considering facts like the constant need for better education, innovation coupled with high population and low numbers of teachers in Brazil, Eliademy enables instructors to reach more and more students. A good sign is also that learning through digital technology has received high reception in Brazil.

Aiming to democratize education with technology, and supported by CBTec, a Finnish company founded by ex Nokia-Meego team and developed with top universities, organizations and Finnish students, we now arrive to Brazil and Portuguese speaking countries sharing a common goal: to accomplish constant and advanced improvements to education; being this “the only profession that creates other professions” and thereby, a better society.

Special thanks from the Eliademy team to Francisco Salerno Neto and Romina Correia Scarso, for their valuable contribution and translation of the whole website to Portuguese language, from the words of the great Henry ford: “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success”.

You can now teach and learn in Croatian on Eliademy

Croatian Launch 1

Our localization effort expands today as we enable the features of Eliademy in Croatian. Eliademy’s commitment to local languages now  makes it available in a total of 12 languages including Croatian, English, Finnish, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Serbian, Filipino, Lithuanian, Hindi and Kazakh. With more languages in the pipeline, Eliademy might be reaching over 40 languages by the end of 2013.

Similar to other languages, instructors can utilize the platform to create, share and manage educational content with students with the option of incorporating the Croatian culture through language, image and existing materials from instructors’ library. And if you are a Moodle user, your courses can also be taught via Eliademy by simply enabling it in the course creation process.

To improve the effectiveness of learning, we can enable Eliademy in your local language. Please send us a language request through our contact at info@eliademy.com and we are ready to listen to you.
