At the beginning of the summer, the project team contacts the students enrolled in the Bachelor program at GSEM. The list is provided and updated by the registration service. They then create an account and connect to the InnProgress platform adapted to the needs of the ETM. Access to the platform, via registration, is free at all times. To guide students through the access and administrative aspects, the team has created an intructional video in which the student advisor speaks.
Once logged in, students begin by taking a self-assessment test in the form of an MCQ. Each question is associated with a specific content area. There are 3 questions associated with each topic. If the student passes these 3 questions, the system indicates that he/she has mastered the respective module.
Once the test is completed, the student then starts the online self-study program, which is personalized according to the student's position on the initial self-test. The modules that have been mastered are displayed in green, the others in red.
The content of the modules has been created by the teachers. Each module is a training unit containing a video explaining the content, the course material in the form of slides and a new quiz at the end of the course allowing you to evaluate yourself specifically on the module.
In addition to the training modules, a dialogue box is available at all times for any questions. The questions are answered by the assistants of the Mathematics I course. All the questions and answers are visible to anyone who is logged in.
Finally, the ETM offers face-to-face sessions where students can ask their questions. These sessions take place one week before the start of the academic year.
Compared to the initial system, this innovation allows students to know their own level on the subject and to progress specifically on their gaps. It also allows them to be autonomous, to choose the period and duration of work, and to respect their own learning pace.
