We have multiple options for low-bandwidth users, whether they reside in camps, rural settings or urban areas without overloading the data consumption. We offer:

 

  • Kiron’s extremely low-bandwidth app 
  • Multiple media and size options for the same content (e.g.: video transcripts)
  • Data caching: once something has been viewed it stays on the device 
  • Low-bandwidth communication tools
  • Potential for fully offline solutions based on technologies, and needs on the ground

Collaborative and facilitated learning

Group learners with similar level and personal preferences

Group learners with similar level and personal preferences

Our content is available anytime and anywhere. Still live sessions are essential for connecting and building a virtual community with your students that is both collaborative and inclusive. Use our online facilitator training or design your own, to have a positive impact on your community and engaging delivery of course material. This is crucial for skills acquisition. We offer a host of tools and programs to enable this:

  • Establish trust with students and engage them in the material and in a community
  • Use effective tools to overcome challenges caused by asynchronous learning (whether it is content or digital problems)
  • Enable students to access the right type of support like message boards and Help Desk
  • Assess if students need additional support
  • Use student assessment results and their indicated availability to schedule live sessions that fit their learning goals and needs

English and Prep courses

English courses at all levels and free access to language apps

English courses at all levels and free access to language apps

Online programs in English do not need to be an obstacle to learners. To make learning ‘barrier-free’, we couple language learning with the acquisition of digital skills. We designed a range of options that help make this true: 

  • English language courses at Beginner and Intermediate levels in addition to free access to language apps
  • Students can take our English assessment and be placed in the appropriate programs
  • Complement your work on the ground with Kiron language offers
  • Set your students up for success with basic digital skills courses and other topic-related prep courses

Effective monitoring and evaluation

With our tools, learners set their own goals and monitor their progress

With our tools, learners set their own goals and monitor their progress

We offer Live Dashboards to keep track of all indicators that are important for student learning and success. You will have dashboards around the clock with the information you need to:

  • keep track of student progress to offer help and guidance as needed
  • provide motivational techniques to keep students engaged
  • monitor additional impact measures such as project outcomes, student milestones and feedback

All data in the dashboard is anonymous, safe, GDPR compliant and tailored to the extra security needs of refugees
