Introduction

Due to the arrival of the Corona crisis, students have had to become acquainted with new programs in a short time to be able to follow distance learning. While these programs are intended to help and support, they also created a lot of confusion because each program works in a different way.
 
The student has six channels from the University that serve for communication and for requesting information, including: (webmail), checking study progress (Osiris & Hint), viewing their schedule (Hint), signing up for courses (Osiris & Webmail), Submitting of reports and downloading class materials (N@tschool). With the advent of distance learning, a number of collaboration programs have been added (Miro, Microsoft Teams, Trello, etc.) that enable remote collaboration.
 
With the advent of distance learning, the interaction between students has decreased significantly. There is no organic situation in which you get to know each other or have a chat. This creates an awkward situation for students to ask for feedback or help from fellow students.

SPLASH

A welcome screen with the Atlas logo to welcome the user and allow the application to load in the background.

Login

Via this page, students can log in with their student number and associated password as they are used to with the systems of the University of Applied Sciences.

LIVE Schedule

The live-schedule allows the student to track the progress of the current lesson, contact the teacher, navigate to the location and browse between lessons. The student receives updates from the digital classroom via the “Courses” block. The “Updates” block displays all university-wide notifications.

Cursussen & Deadlines

All courses that the students follow are accessible via this page. Each course has a digital classroom. Deadlines are listed by time and chronologically under the courses.

Uploading

By clicking on a deadline, the student (if it concerns a deliverable) is given the opportunity to submit a deliverable.

Digital classroom

In the digital classroom, the student can consult the quarterly guide, view the status of the next lesson (online or physical), contact the teacher and ask for or give feedback to fellow students.

Feedback

When students need feedback, they can upload their work and ask questions via this “feed”. Via the + button, a new post can be created. You can respond via the bar below the post. Each course has its own feedback channel.

Navigation

The blue button shows whether the lesson takes place on location or online. When the lesson takes place online, the student can go to the correct channel via the Teams button. If the lesson takes place physically, the student will receive navigation to the location by means of Google Maps.
