BuildUp courses are designed for the best online learning experience. Students sign up for a Premium Membership for access to all courses across a wide range of categories. They do courses at their own pace, complete recaps to practice what they’ve learned, and interact with each other from all around the globe. As a teacher, you get to facilitate this unique learning experience, and that all starts with understanding the 3 pillars of BuildUp’s pedagogy model:
1. Self-Paced, Digestible Learning
In today's fast-paced digital world, bite-sized content is the proven to be easiest for students to digest, understand, and remember. BuildUp programmes, on average, include 6-8 minutes of content broken down in a series of short 15-30 minute courses. Rather than teaching a broad, sweeping skill set, your course should hone in on one specific project, concept or skill. This digestible format allows for focused and engaged learning - anytime, anywhere. Learn how to get started on your class planning with our step-by-step guide.
2. Learn by Doing
All courses on BuildUp include a fun, quick tasks that helps students practice what you’re teaching and share their process with the community to get feedback, which leads to a more effective and lasting learning experience. For many teachers, seeing their students' apply their skills to real projects is one of the most rewarding parts of teaching.
3. Community-Based Learning
Students on BuildUp interact with each other by answering questions, sharing tips and resources, and providing each other with feedback and encouragement. Often times, students learn just as much from one another as they learn from you. You'll facilitate this by providing as many opportunities for collaboration as possible.
