Dorado Learning can shape the way universities respond, strategize, and embellish courses to move forward. The World Economic Forum published a piece that claims’ COVID-19 is driving a long-overdue revolution in education and foretells’ a new educational paradigm.
“COVID-19 is causing us to challenge deep-rooted notions of when, where, and how we deliver education, the role of colleges and universities, the importance of lifelong learning, and the distinction we draw between traditional and non-traditional learners. … COVID-19 has struck our education system like a lightning bolt and shaken it to its core. Just as the First Industrial Revolution forged today’s education system, we can expect a different kind of educational model to emerge from COVID-19.” [i]

After the pandemic, we may never go back to the way things were. What is the future of college education? While there is no blueprint for the future higher education success amid COVID-19, One of the most notable changes is the mass transition to online learning.[ii] Students will also seek colleges and universities with well-established health protocols and a proven track record for putting students’ needs first with quality online courses, robust career counseling, internships, and lifelong learning opportunities.

All the digital components are designed in HTML5 for a Bring your own device (BYOD) compatible format.
Dorado provides blended learning solutions for Higher Education, where a blend of online and offline instructions are used to complement traditional face-to-face instructions, not replace them. Dorado Learning provides a broad range of services, technology, and content development for the design, delivery, and improvement of online, blended, and traditional courses.
Simulations and Labs
We all know how simulations play an important role in learning STEM in Higher Education. Universities have been using it for decades. Dorado provides simulations that are instructionally designed scenarios where the learner is placed in a ‘world’ defined by the curriculum and teacher. It is a self-exploring environment for the students to enable experiential learning.
It is recorded that student retention can boost as much as 60% through E-Learning. Dorado Learning provides custom-fit E-Learning solutions for Higher education to online universities. Audio visual-based learning is known to improve productivity and augment learner’s focus. 14+ years of experience in creating high-quality, interactive digital content for Universities.
Augmented Reality (AR) is a live, direct, or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, or GPS data. Augmented Reality (AR) can enhance information, learning, and collaboration. Dorado provides AR apps for higher education to experience hands-on training.
Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive experience also called a computer-simulated reality. It refers to computer technologies using reality headsets to generate realistic sounds, images, and other sensations that replicate a natural environment or create an imaginary world. VR is a way to immerse users in an entirely virtual world. A VR environment will engage all five senses.
Utilizes 3D visual appearances to create real-life or different virtual experiences. Such experiences range from the overlap of technology to completely immersive reality devices. High fidelity 3D assets & interactive simulations. The use of 3D graphics interactive or non-interactive, in Higher Education, has proved its potential in learning complex areas of medical and engineering topics.
“Dovarsity” is a SAAS-based Learning Platform for higher education and universities. It is a blend of the world’s best open source ‘Moodle’, tweaked by our developers with performance analytics, and virtual classroom integration. After a thorough need analysis from higher ed experts, it has been modified with almost all the features offered by the world’s who’s who LMS’s.
Learners need & Analytics
Needs analysis involves doing some kind of activity with a learner to find out what their learning needs are. … Asking learners what they feel they need to practice is a good initial step. As well as providing data, it can encourage them to start thinking about their learning and taking responsibility for it. We use statistical methods to analyze the learning need and offer a relevant solution in Higher Education.
Experiential Learning Approach
An educational activity facilitated through which students learn while doing. Students participate in workplaces, or simulated workplaces, where they are exposed to authentic professional demands and expectations. It converts learning to an experience moving beyond the classroom methodology and strives to bring a more involved way of learning.
A personal learning is intended to facilitate each student’s success by first determining the learning needs, interests, and aspirations of individual students and then providing learning experiences customized to a greater or lesser extent for each learner. Personalized learning can also give students the chance to build self-advocacy skills. It encourages them to speak up about what interests them. It also allows them to be equal partners in their learning experience.
Online instruction involves providing personalized learning experiences resulting from a data-driven approach to curriculum design, which uses artificial intelligence to tailor content to everyone needs actively. Key components of Adaptive learning includes; the learning pathway based on students profile. An initial pre-test determines students cohort and pathway. Assessments are chosen based n students knowledge profile and mastery levels.
STANDARDS WE USE FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE
The Quality Matters Framework assess against eight quality standards:
- Course overview and Introduction
- Learning Objectives (Competencies)
- Assessment and Measurement
- Instructional Materials
- Course Activities and Learner Interaction
- Course Technology
- Learner Support
- Accessibility and Usability
This discussion paper and toolkit have been developed with research assistance from the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education at The University of Melbourne. We follow the APEC Quality Assurance for Online Learning.
OLC Quality Course Teaching and Instructional Practice Scorecard
The Quality Course Teaching and Instructional Practice (QCTIP) is a comprehensive scorecard which can be used for an in-depth review to validate instructional practices as compared to quality standards identified by our panel of experts.
Designed to evaluate the overall classroom experience, this tool can be used to evaluate teaching effectiveness in several areas, including: Course Fundamentals, Learning Foundations, Faculty Engagement and Student Engagement.
