VirtualBook® Functionality

VirtualBook® has been developed as an interface specifically for the education and training environment, and has numerous useful features that enhance its effectiveness as a medium for the delivery of course material, such as:

VirtualBook® :

  • Is user-friendly, familiar and intuitive (the Book paradigm): no need to be a technocrat
  • Offers the reader/learner familiar aids, such as margin notes, highlighters, bookmarks
  • Provides a time management chart that indicates to the student time spent on each chapter of the material and tracks the time taken on submittable tests
  • Provides user-friendly help at the click of a button
  • Provides a seamless query connection facilitating questions to the tutor at the click of a button. Information about student progress is automatically included, together with the paragraph onto which the student dragged the query icon
  • Interacts seamlessly with the Internet, where support can be provided from a customised website with all facilities such as Updates, Searchable FAQs, Blogs, Online Testing, etc.
  • Provides seamless hot-linking to websites whose URLs are included in the text
  • Facilitates interactive learning and self-testing (e.g. drag n' drop; MCQs; fill in words; free form writing and drawing)
  • Includes immediate feedback on self-marking test facilities
  • Includes a robust search engine that indicates all sources of the requested word/phrase with a hotlink to each page with an occurrence of the word
  • Provides a multimedia-rich environment - sound, video, animated drawings, simulations; but also makes the studying of text-rich material as comfortable and sustainable as possible
