Put blended learning on the agenda either as intense workshops or for an entire semester.
With Peaqs your faculty teachers and researchers can access the platform and apply it to their class teaching without having to change or alter their current curriculum. The platform is cost efficient and aimed at providing better and more engaging teaching – primarily in the subjects of innovation, entrepreneurship, product development, business development and marketing- & business strategy.
However, many other subjects are applicable as long as there is a need to do case-based teaching and peer reviewing.
As a true blended learning platform, Peaqs allows the teachers role to shift away from one-way, classroom instruction, to a more versatile mixed classroom/online environment that can be accessed by students and teachers alike at all times from anywhere. Peaqs can even run on a complete remote learning basis where students/instructors only meet on Peaqs and your preferred video conferencing service.
Peaqs is aimed at higher level learning institutions from entry level university to MBA. As the curriculum is easily replaced and adapted to the course at hand, the platform scales seamlessly to the level of complexity needed – the teacher only has to define a reading list and provide headlines to the in-game templates.
Peaqs is developed in Scandinavia and comes out-the-box with teaching notes, learning objectives and a teacher’s inspiration catalogue designed and developed by PhD level experts in the field.
Reach & potential
When Peaqs is used for courses is allows for a better overview of student/group progress and can allign them to certain steps of the study plan with our time-boxing feature. Also, the teacher can invite anyone to participate and monitor the Peaqs session, so outside mentors can sit from afar and provide input on student work.
Peaqs has an in-game resource section where teachers can upload study plans, curriculum, notes, instructional videos and more to make sure that learning resources are directly available to the students as they move along in your course. This makes it much easier to design, launch and re-launch courses over time and distance and to obtain a better overview of your faculty’s course designing in general, perhaps even making it easier for the institution to approach outside stakeholders with pre-made learning packages. Finally, there’s an export option so you can game extract data for faculty research and long term knowledge building.
Versatility & ease of use
Depending on the course Peaqs can permeate an entire semester with several class room sessions or form the basis of a few days of intense workshops, making it the perfect versatile education tool that can accommodate anything from full-time students to short-termed intense MBA courses.
Peaqs is 100 % digital and requires no other technical equipment or proficiency than being able to access the internet during class. The platform is offered to faculties on a year-to-year subscription basis. If you are looking for deeper technical integration with your learning platforms we can also accommodate this on a bespoke basis. Basically, we help universities and business school broaden their digital offering without having to make a huge investment.
