What is Katateeb Virtual School?
It is a learning management system (LMS) that provides both synchronous and asynchronous remote e-learning solutions to Jordanian curriculum students.
A number of websites have appeared in Jordan that provide eLearning services to school students in the format of prerecorded videos of the topic.
Although this system used to serve a small group of students, it is not the best educational solution for distance learning as the owners of these sites claimed at the time.
I built a learning management system (LMS) using the global open source WordPress and one of its LMS plugins “LearnPress”. This system relied on both synchronous and asynchronous learning to meet the students’ different needs when learning remotely.
A schedule is created for the live sessions that take place through the Zoom app. Recordings of these sessions are then uploaded to the website for students to refer to when needed. Quizzes have also been adopted as a teaching method in this platform by preparing a customized feedback that has been carefully placed for each question that the students answer incorrectly to direct them to the correct answer.
Ketateeb Virtual School was the first eLearningl platform in Jordan to operate using online payment systems such as Paypal, Zain Cash wallet and of course credit cards instead of selling prepaid subscription cards that were used in all other sites.
