Data-driven economy requires data-centered education
Consolidated teaching environment
Teaching environments are often composed of multiple, individual (both online and offline) applications. Such environments are expensive, difficult to maintain and require dedicated hardware and physical space. Moreover, students move data between these applications in an insecure, intransparent and error-prone manner.
Figlinq replaces the landscape of multiple incompatible applications with a single, web based environment.
Common course workspace available anytime, anywhere
Curricula relying on traditional applications require the physical attendance of teachers and students. In the context of online education, or when teaching is must frequently shift between home- and on-premises schooling, there is a strong need for a platform that could support all these models.
Figlinq is a web-based platform available through the browser. anytime and from any location.
Collaborative approach to problem-solving
Problems of the digital era are often too complex for individuals – the most significant and innovative results are achieved through teamwork. For university graduates, collaboration must become a natural and default approach to problem-solving. Traditional programs still largely rely, however, on individual assignments. In addition, the commonly used, complex and distributed software landscape does not encourage teamwork-based education.
Figlinq is natively designed for internal (within project/class) and external (in social and professional networks) collaboration and sharing.
Permament and comprehensive course record
Creating and maintaining course documentation is a time-consuming and logistically challenging task for teachers and administrators. Schools often rely on local data storage or dedicated third-party solutions, but this is limited to final written student reports and evaluations. The actual work executed by the students (e.g. data worksheets, calculations, charts) are not preserved at all, and not inspectable, verifiable or reusable.
With Figlinq, all students’ activities are permanently linked to each other, to the final reports and evaluations, and can be accessed, reviewed or reused.
