Technical programs at engineering and management colleges offer professional degrees and seek accreditations like NBA or ABET for their programs. InPods LMS works well with the outcomes and performance frameworks to allow authoring of rich outcomes-mapped courseware for in-class or online delivery of content and assessments. InPods LMS supports all the prevalent types of assessments used by such programs for their continuous assessment tests and end-term exams. Secure online exam support helps colleges conduct tests without worrying about the server capacity and peak-load handling. Faculty saves hours by benefiting from auto-grading and outcomes-attainment calculations done by InPods for CO-PO attainment analysis using the mapping information and performance thresholds articulated in the framework.
Medical colleges are transitioning towards competency-based medical education and are required to implement the new CBME-curriculum. InPods LMS works well with the competency and performance framework to allow authoring of rich outcomes-mapped learning experiences and assessment tools for the delivery of learning and assessments. InPods LMS supports all the prevalent types of instruction methods and assessment methods recommended by the curriculum guidelines. InPods LMS is primed with all the departments, subject-wise competencies, certifiable procedures and skills, performance scale, and domain types. This makes it very easy for the faculty members to engage in blue-printing, lesson planning, and publishing and conducting internal/formative assessments, all the while retaining the outcomes mapping information for further analysis.
InPods LMS helps faculty identify students who need extra support in order to acquire required competencies by using outcomes-analytics support and allows faculty to assign extra work for students to engage in self-directed learning and improvement.
Health Science programs require longitudinal tracking of student competencies gathered in the clinical settings and skill-labs. InPods LMS allows faculty members to assign skill-certification related learning and assessment materials to a smaller group of students at a time. Faculty members engage in the feedback loop based on student performance observed in the lab or clinical setting using a checklist or a rubric and certify a student on that skill/competency.
Skill-based training providers with multiple centers and each center offering multiple programs have unique challenges. They have to maintain programmatic control via master courseware for multiple faculty members, scale the delivery of instructions and assessments in non-classroom settings at different centers, and analyze competency outcomes data to certify learners as well as continuously improve program quality.
InPods LMS provides secure digital access to program and course materials via digital virtual classrooms for each cohort of students and their faculty members of each enrolled batch across all the centers. InPods also automates the secure online testing using formative and summative assessments on a digital platform and harnesses all the evidences of outcomes data to engage in continuous improvement and academic governance of all the programs, and to maintain student outcome records of all the students who have graduated from these programs.
Academic Institutions offering courses and programs in arts, science and commerce fields have a large number of students per section. Providing blended-learning experiences, online-courses and conducting online tests with auto-grading and course outcomes attainment data can improve teacher’s and student’s productivity. Data generated by InPods LMS can be used by the academic leadership teams effectively for institutional assessment and accreditation processes.

Indira Group of InstitutesIndira Group of Institutes, a premier institute in Pune, India, wanted a technology platform to enhance the teaching & learning experience for their students. The project involved integration of the Office 365 Education suite (O365) with InPods – a cloud-based learning platform for Outcomes-Based Education (OBE). Faculty members and students log in with the convenience of single sign-on and seamlessly collaborate. They bring in teaching aids and assessment content from O365 and contextualize it with their daily workflow of teaching and learning process implemented on the InPods Learning Platform. Download PDF
JSPM’s RS College of EngineeringJSPMs’ Rajarshi Shahu College of Engineering (RSCOE) in Pune, India has successfully managed its programs for 15 years with good results and was accredited as part of an accreditation system which was an input/output-based, as opposed to outcomes-based. After several rounds of internal reviews a primary focus on improving learning outcomes was determined to be more beneficial. The idea was to embark on such a journey informed by learning-data. It was decided to implement this change with a goal of building closed-loop system which could be guided and informed by learning outcomes data relative to stakeholder’s objectives. Download PDF
