Title
(EN) STUDY PLANNER SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE PLANIFICATION D'ETUDES
Abstract
(EN)
A method and system for setting up and using a personal learning schedule and path through an instructional product. Using a wizard-style interface, a study plan is established for a user based on a session frequency, along with the date the user wishes to finish the instructional product or the amount of time that the user has available each session. Once the user has set up a study plan, each time that user logs in, the user is taken to that day's list of assigned activities on a personalized home page. From there, the user is able to check activity status for past and future lessons, and quickly navigate to a lesson. Users can set up their own personalized learning schedule based on their own study objectives. The method and system further allow the user to determine a skill level required to complete the activities, and further monitors the user's progress in sucessfully completing those activities.

Procédé et système servant à établir et à utiliser un programme d'apprentissage personnel et un trajet à travers un produit éducatif. On dresse, au moyen d'une interface intelligente, un plan d'études pour un utilisateur en fonction d'une fréquence de sessions, et on détermine la date à laquelle l'utilisateur souhaite terminer son programme d'apprentissage ou sa durée disponible pour chaque session. Une fois que l'utilisateur a établi un plan d'études, chaque fois qu'il rentre dans son programme informatique, il est amené à une liste journalière d'activités attribuées sur une page personnalisée. Il est alors capable de vérifier l'état de son activité pour des leçons passées et futures et de naviguer rapidement vers une leçon. Les utilisateurs peuvent dresser leur propre programme d'apprentissage personnalisé en fonction de leurs propres objectifs d'études. Ce procédé et ce système permettent, de plus, à l'utilisateur de déterminer un niveau d'aptitude nécessaire pour remplir certaines activités et de contrôler également ses progrès dans l'accomplissement réussi de ces activités.
