Fabulearn for Fabulous Flipped Learning
Paul Lam and Kevin Wong
The ‘Flipped Classroom Approach in Hong Kong Higher Education’ Project has initiated the development of a new Learning Management System that is tailor-made to maximize the flipped classroom teaching and learning experience. The platform has the name ‘Fabulearn’, which stands for ‘Flipped And Blended University Learning’. We think that traditional LMSs do not fully support of needs of the flipped classroom method mainly because these systems do not focus enough on students’ learning processes.
Thus, the monitoring and time-keeping functions are strong design elements in the platform to help teachers understand students’ preparations and performance in activities at various stages of the flipped learning process.
