Educate-it

Month of the skills

Many academic programmes incorporate communication, academic or lab skills, teaching things like delivering bad news, performing captivating presentations or experimenting on precious materials. For students, practicing these skills is an important part of the programme and vital preparation for their careers. Teachers can use online tools to help their students practice. Educate-it helps those teachers.

  • With these tools, students can practice their skills digitally in a secure and familiar environment, as often as they want or need.
  • Students receive the feedback they need to develop their skills from the tool itself or digitally from their teachers and peers.
  • This provides students an important opportunity to practice their skills before they have to use them in their classes or careers.
