Hassel free and bulk uploading of students’ and teacher’s data, which takes less than a minute!
Having clarity on what the student should know and realistically be able to do by the end of a course, class, assignment, or activity serves as the engine to achieve your program outcome. Without this, you are not heading anywhere. To facilitate this, our system has a default template wherein teachers will be guided to create the course and flipped learning outcomes, as per Blooms Taxonomy.
All students may not want to view their lessons or read at the same time or may have challenges with internet connectivity. For those, readily available modules will be more student-friendly. The teacher has an option to upload videos, PDF, PPT or word files to suit their syllabus and flipped learning outcomes, which students can choose based on their learning preferences.
Are you tired of using multiple video conferencing tools, and not knowing how to operate it or how to share it? Use KC live video classes! Initiate the classes under the respective chapter, record it in the same place and leave it there for your students’ future reference.
Would you like to share additional references and e-books? Add them to the Additional Resource module under every chapter, so that your students have easy access to extra study material!
Immediate recall in the form of a test is an effective method for aiding the retention of learning, concludes a study by Herbert F. Spitzer. To incorporate active recall, and to increase student’s engagement in class, conduct polling in the form of MCQ’s | Fill in the blanks | True or False.
Students can download the KC mobile app or use the web app as the voting pad to take part in the class polling. This could be used for student’s engagement in distance learning or remote learning
Do you have challenges in providing internet access and devices to your students to conduct live quizzes/polling, no worries use our magical knowledge checkers answer cards, which will act as an interface between the students and technology without internet
Every student gets instant results/feedback on his flipped learning, that helps him to plan and ratify his area of weakness. This result is stored in the report module for the students’ future reference. It can be sent as an email to parents.
Use our teaching tools and enlist class activities that would evoke critical thinking and problem-solving abilities of the students. Determine interactive learning activities to achieve the learning outcomes aligned with Bloom’s taxonomy.
Teachers may design assignments in alignment with the flipped learning outcomes. These may be individual or group assignments and can include case analysis, capstone projects, literature reviews, book reviews, research activities, application of the concepts to the context and performance-based activities
Create unlimited number of tests for students’ independent practice, as well as class tests with the following type of questions: MCQ’s | Fill in the blanks | True or False | Questions with images. Random Choice of Questions: The set questions are automatically arranged in different orders for each student.
By placing the cursor on the question numbers, the student gets to see a preview of the question. They have the freedom to choose any question, in any order, and answer according to their convenience. The system indicates any missed questions, and ensure that all questions are answered before submission.
At the end of every chapter, students can rate their own achievement of the learning outcome.
Calendar helps the teacher to keep students adequately informed about their daily activities. All students' activities like Class Tests, Class Polling, and Assignments get listed in the calendar automatically as soon as it is created by the teachers. Moreover, the students also get notified through their app. At the end of the week or month, the teachers can extract a report on the calendar of activities.
Options for the head of the institution to send out e-circulars or other important announcements. The teachers can also notify their students individually or as a group on important matters. The students get notified through their mobile app as well

KC has an option whereby you can send real time report to the parents on the level of participation of their wards in the class or send it cumulatively at a later date.
Principals, as effective leaders, require adequate and timely information on students' progress and related activities. The KC platform provides real time information on the time table, teachers’ activities and students’ performance. This allows the principal to effectively administer the school remotely, which is a significant advantage at this time.
Researchers state that academic feedback is more strongly and consistently related to achievement than any other teaching behaviour. Instant feedback on the performance of the students on class polling, class test, assignments gives them self-awareness and enables them to improve their learning and performance prior to the summative assessment.
Our dynamic Time Table is easy to prepare and modifiable on daily/weekly basis. Students get to know the topics and prepares in advance, particularly for Flipped Classroom. The class teacher can extract daily/weekly reports on topics covered or left behind.
Handbook, Time table, Policies, SoP’s and other documents can be uploaded in PDF format. One of the advantages here is that it will be enabled by the principal’s office. Hence, version control is easily managed. These documents will be available in every teachers’ profile and mobile app
In addition to the technological support, KC offers innovative pedagogy guidance on creation of Learning outcome and Class activities like:
Accrediting bodies require students to have ready access to school handbooks and policies. KC has a provision to upload students' handbooks, policies and other such materials which then become available in every student's profile and downloadable on all devices, including smart phones
