How to Prepare for Online Learning at Home

Most schools are now shifting to home-based learning because of the quarantine measures implemented by the government. Is your family ready for this?

Here are the things you need to prepare to facilitate your child’s online learning and stay on track with the national curriculum.

5 Essentials for Successful Home-Based Learning

1. How much involvement is required of the parents/caregivers?

The level of involvement can vary greatly. Boxed curricula are usually designed for independent study, with the students having access to answer keys so they can grade their own work. Some online learning portals have automated grading and feedback of quizzes and activities.

Children in the middle grades or older can usually be left to study on their own for longer periods. Just be ready to set out the materials, guide them with their activities, and answer any questions they may have. Note that preschool and early elementary students require more supervision and hands-on involvement.

2. Does your child have a dedicated study area?

Does your child have a personal study area, with a desk or table he or she can work on? Ideally, each child should have his or her personal study desk in a well-lighted area.

However, space could be limited in some households, so siblings have to share study areas. If this is the case, you should set a schedule that gives each child a certain time of day to use the study area.

Also, does your child need to study in a multi-use area? Space can be so limited that children have to use a common family area like the dining table or the living room for lessons. If so, schedule who should use the area at certain times, including the rest of the family for those family times like dinner.

3. Do you have school supplies at home?

Make a list of the supplies your children will need, based on the school’s program for this term. Must-haves include books, writing implements, art materials, and paper. If budget is an issue, siblings can share or reuse materials.

If you live in a small space, school bags are the easiest way to store supplies. Bags are portable, so students can carry everything they need wherever they do their school work. This is especially useful if the study area is shared or multi-use.

Do you have plenty of space at home? Consider investing in shelves. Not only do they provide more storage area, shelves are also nicer to look at.

4. What equipment or technology will they need?

Home-based learning programs usually have an online component, so each child should also have a dedicated computer, laptop, or other device for online lessons. But if they are using, say, a shared computer, create a user profile for each child so that they each can save their work safely without affecting the others’ works.

Which online connection is best for them: DSL, broadband, or mobile data? You also have to factor that you might need the internet bandwidth for your own work if you are working from home. For the best internet providers, ask your neighbors for recommendations.

5. How proficient is your family with technology?

Remember that you will have to learn how to use the apps and the devices that the school requires before the learning sessions begin. If you need help in this area, look up online tutorials or contact the school for help on how to use the apps and devices.

After learning how to use the tech, you will need to teach your children how to use them, if they don’t already know. After teaching them how to use them, give them opportunities to practice so they will be able to concentrate more on the lessons than on operating the app and device correctly.

Prognozy dla branży EdTech na 2019 rok

Poproszono nas o wypowiedź do artykułu BRANŻA EDTECH W 2019 ROKU: PROGNOZY EKSPERTÓW I ZAŁOŻYCIELI FIRM Z CAŁEGO ŚWIATA, który ukazał się niedawno w serwisie Oto nasza część tej publikacji:

Cyfrowe narzędzia oceny dostarczają nam już ram i danych, które, przekazane do systemów kształcenia, ułatwiają zdobywanie wiedzy i jej ocenę w szkołach, domach i centrach edukacyjnych.

Michał Korpys, Dyrektor Produktu w NUADU
Prognoza NUADU dla branży EdTech na rok 2019

Michał Korpys jest współzałożycielem NUADU, opartej na sztucznej inteligencji platformy, która zmienia sposób, w jaki uczniowie osiągają cele edukacyjne, a nauczyciele przydzielają i oceniają zadania. W 2019 roku Korpys spodziewa się rosnącego wpływu obiektywnych danych w adaptywnej edukacji – i to według niego będzie ewolucyjne rozszerzenie procesu cyfrowej oceny ucznia. Liczy, że dzięki tej zmianie nauczyciele będą mogli poświęcać więcej czasu na to, co potrafią najlepiej: na wsparcie uczniów w osiąganiu celów edukacyjnych.

Prognoza NUADU dla branży EdTech na rok 2019

– Cyfrowe narzędzia oceny dostarczają nam już ram i danych, które, przekazane do systemów kształcenia, ułatwiają przyswajanie wiedzy i jej ocenę w szkołach, domach i centrach edukacyjnych – mówi Korpys. – Dojdziemy w końcu do momentu, w którym proces edukacji zacznie przebiegać płynnie. Nauczyciele będą dobrze wykorzystywać czas spędzany z uczniami, a uczniowie będą dobrze wykorzystywać czas poświęcany na zdobywanie wiedzy w najskuteczniejszy możliwy sposób. Systemy, które za tym wszystkim stoją, też będą działać optymalnie, zapewniając cyfrowe wsparcie edukacji adaptywnej i administracyjnej papierkowej roboty. 

Prognoza NUADU dla branży EdTech na rok 2019

Nie są to jednak jedyne prognozy Michała Korpysa na 2019 rok.

– W 2019 roku ludzie będą też bardziej otwarci na spersonalizowane ścieżki nauczania wykorzystujące sztuczną inteligencję – mówi Korpys. – Jeśli chodzi o samodzielną naukę, nic nie przebije dobrego nauczyciela albo prostego cyfrowego narzędzia, które będzie nam towarzyszyć, przewidywać naszą ścieżkę nauczania i dopasowywać ją w czasie rzeczywistym do naszych celów edukacyjnych.

Korpys podkreśla, że aby tak się stało, interakcje na linii człowiek-komputer muszą rozwijać się i stawać coraz bardziej złożone. Wierzy, że to właśnie nastąpi w nadchodzącym roku.

Prognoza NUADU dla branży EdTech na rok 2019

Na koniec, Michał Korpys ma nadzieję, że w 2019 roku będziemy poświęcać coraz więcej uwagi umiejętnościom miękkim:

– Świat bardzo tego potrzebuje, a my musimy zacząć tworzyć nową kulturę, której podstawą będzie dążenie do doskonałości w tej dziedzinie. Zrównoważony rozwój: ekologia, recykling, walka z plastikiem – to wszystko jest częścią powstającego paradygmatu, w którym rozwiązania złożonych problemów wynikają z empatii, są oparte o analizę danych i powstają dzięki innowacjom.

Predictions for EdTech in 2019

We were asked to provide the input for the article EDTECH IN 2019: EXPERTS AND FOUNDERS AROUND THE WORLD SHARE PREDICTIONS, recently published by Here is our part:

Digital assessment tools already provide us with the data and framework to feed it back to learning systems to facilitate knowledge acquisition and evaluation in schools, homes, and learning centers.

Michał Korpys, NUADU Head of Product

Michal Korpys is one of the co-founders of NUADU, an AI-based platform that is transforming how students achieve learning goals and how teachers assign and evaluate student work. In 2019, Korpys looks forward to a growing focus on data-driven adaptivity in education, which he considers an evolutionary extension of digital assessment. His hope is that this shift will free up teachers to spend more time doing what they do best: helping students achieve their learning goals.

“Digital assessment tools already provide us with the data and framework to feed it back to learning systems to facilitate knowledge acquisition and evaluation in schools, homes, and learning centers,” observes Korpys, “Eventually we’ll get to the point of ‘smooth education,’ where teachers have quality time teaching students, students have quality time learning in the most efficient way, and the systems running underneath have quality time as well; performing their tasks, deep within within the digital realm of adaptive learning support and dungeons of paperwork administration.” But these are not Korpys’s only predictions for the 2019.

“In 2019,” says Korpys, “I also see people growing more open to AI-led personalized learning paths. When it comes to self-study, nothing can beat a good teacher, or a simple digital companion that is able to predict your learning path and adjust it to your learning goals in real-time.” But for this to work, Korpys emphasizes, the complexity of human-machine interactions needs to keep growing. He’s optimistic this will continue to happen in 2019.

Finally, Korpys is hopeful that in 2019, we will also increasingly turn our attention to soft skills: “The world needs it badly and we need to build a new culture based on excellence in that. Sustainable development: ecology, recycling, plastic war–all that is part of the emerging paradigm where solutions to complex problems are animated by empathy, based on big data analysis, and solved by innovations.”

Data-Driven Education

One of the main advantages of digital educational tools is their ability to process massive amounts of data in seconds to produce exactly what the teachers need — just-in-time actionable insights about each and every student based on objective data. With the right tools, nothing is left to guesswork.

At NUADU, we appreciate the challenges currently facing educators.

With overcrowded classrooms and limited time to cater to every student’s needs, teachers have no choice but to rely on technology to boost their efficiency and effectiveness. But which digital solutions are most well positioned to support teachers in their quest to support students?

One of the main advantages of digital educational tools is their ability to process massive amounts of data in seconds to produce exactly what the teachers need — just-in-time actionable insights about each and every student based on objective data. With the right tools, nothing is left to guesswork.

This is why at NUADU, we believe in data-driven education — using data to empower all the stakeholders in the educational process. We know how impactful a data-driven approach to education can be and that’s why we are now sharing our platform with educators and students around the world.

That’s how we do it

Managing educational data is extremely challenging and requires an efficient and well-designed platform — ideally, a platform capable of processing data about all aspects of the educational process.

At NUADU we used data to:

  • Create a personal learning and assessment environment for every student [LEARNING ANALYTICS & DIGITAL ASSESSMENT];
  • Provide teachers with insights into their students’ educational needs and the tools needed to address these needs just in time [DATA-DRIVEN INSTRUCTION];
  • Allow authorities to monitor engagement and effectiveness at the school and district levels [EDUCATIONAL PERFORMANCE MONITORING];
  • Help publishers control content quality based on its usability [CONTENT PERFORMANCE ANALYTICS];
  • Give parents an objective picture of their child’s progress [PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT].


I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.

Albert Einstein


In the past, tracking the performance of dozens and even hundreds students throughout the school year and across grade levels was impossible. It was also impossible to adjust the learning environment to meet each student’s specific needs. NUADU offers a solution.

With NUADU educational data about every student is not only stored but also analysed to enable teachers to:

  • See and compare every student’s performance for selected subjects, classes, and groups in a given time period;
  • React just in time to address the needs of students who are at-risk by giving them extra practice (e.g., the suggested training sets contain variants of 10 exercises with the lowest score received by the selected group of students);
  • See which exercises are too easy or too difficult for selected students, groups, and classes to adjust the difficulty of subsequent homework assignments;
  • Differentiate and indivdualize instruction on the basis of student results to address students’ needs more accurately;
  • View student results by activities, topics, and curriculum objectives and goals to monitor progress and make adjustments as needed;
  • Adjust the difficulty level and the type of exercises assigned to groups and individual students based on performance;
  • View all attempts and time spent on activities by students and add comments, in line with formative assessment methods, to help students overcome difficulties;
  • Download all the reports as Excel or PDF files.

With NUADU’s tools, teachers can automate many ongoing tasks and leverage data-based insights to more effectively mentor students.


Achieve greatness.



In the world of pens and paper, students rarely receive valuable feedback when they need it. This is because summative assessments (e.g., final exams) still reign over formative assessments (e.g., mid-unit diagnostic assignments). Moreover, despite being increasingly aware of their learning preferences, most students still lack the agency needed to manage their learning process. Students live in the digital world but most schools still reflect the learning conditions of the analogue world.

NUADU data allows students to:

  • Scan exercises to be completed and to filter this information by deadline, ensuring that no homework assignment is ever missed;
  • Immediately view their results for every exercise and activity;
  • Feel gratification when they perform well and motivation when they need extra practice;
  • View their results and progress graphs by subject and activity type in a selected time period to assess how they have improved over time;
  • Act upon the results by selecting self-practice exercises and receive instant feedback to see the effects of their effort;
  • Keep track of all exercises throughout the school year and across grades to see the big picture (the “what I have learned”);
  • See the real-world application of what they learn by keeping track of the cognitive and employability skills they have developed (the “why I am learning this”).

In NUADU’s data-driven learning environment, digital resources, analytics, and formative assessment tools enable students to become self-reliant learners. Students benefit from personalization and immediate feedback.


Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.

Maria Montessori

All parents would sleep better if they knew that their child had access to the tools needed to be an independent learner. At the same time, most parents would also sleep better knowing that their child was actually making good use of their digital devices and Internet access.

NUADU offers parents the possibility to:

  • Monitor their child’s results per specific exercise, activity, topic, curriculum objective and goal, and subject in real time;
  • Keep track of all their child’s progress throughout the school year and across grades to track their progress over time;
  • See the real-world application of what their child is learning (e.g., what cognitive and employability skills their child is developing);
  • Set goals for their child and receive notifications about their child’s progress.

With NUADU parents can stay up-to-date on their child’s educational progress on a daily basis or the system can notify parents only if and when their child is lagging behind.


Headmasters have powers at their disposal with which Prime Ministers have never yet been invested.

Winston Churchill


In many schools, annual exam results and periodical staff meetings are the only source of data a principal has to make long-term decisions about staffing, resource allocation, and the curriculum. In the most innovative schools, administrators cite data-driven instruction as one of the most important practices contributing to their success.

With NUADU, principals can:

  • View activity logs of all the students and teachers in a given school;
  • View activity reports, which include the number of activity sets assigned and median student results;
  • Review insights on the platform’s knowledge base;
  • Access live reports for selected students and subjects;
  • See comparable statistics for all users in the school;
  • Generate reports as PDF files.

With NUADU, educational performance monitoring becomes easy and the ongoing control allows principals to make the right decisions at the right time.

Local authorities

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Benjamin Franklin

The responsibility of allocating educational funds to yield the best results can be daunting, especially if decisions are driven by a single source of feedback — exam results.

NUADU offers local authorities real-time access to:

  • Reports on the number of student, teacher, and headmaster logins in time;
  • Statistics on the number of assigned and completed activities per district and school;
  • Data on the effectiveness of the educational process based on student activity results.

At NUADU, we believe transparency is essential. By offering instant access to actionable real-time data, with NUADU, local school authorities can make informed decisions more quickly.


Content is King.

Bill Gates


With NUADU, it is easier than ever to separate quality digital content from poor content.

Data collected by NUADU can be used to:

  • Monitor how frequently the publisher’s educational resources are used and in what context (e.g., lessons, homework, tests, and self-training);
  • Compare the proposed and actual difficulty level of each item by analysing the number of attempts at a task, time spent on it by students, and its completed versus abandoned rate;
  • Discover which competencies (e.g., cognitive skills and employability skills) are developed most using a specific publisher’s content;
  • Improve content by collecting teacher’s feedback;
  • Infer which areas are most problematic for students and make business decisions about content strategy.

These insights combined with NUADU’s content creator tool can help eliminate or refine poor content.


Our mission to harness data in the service of education is not yet complete. At NUADU, we continue to analyze usage data, talk to users around the world, and assess the obstacles that prevent our users from reaching their peak performance. Equipped with this knowledge and driven by a passion to make learning more effective for every student, we are constantly upgrading our platform. In NUADU’s ideal world, every teacher would have more time to mentor students and every student would spend more time realizing their educational goals.
