Learning Goals

The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

Cahoot platform has plenty of good tools for creating interactive courses. The required interactivity can happen either with the system, or for example through posting comments and discussion with other participants. The course environment has good tools for also responding and adapting to user's activities; Even though the courses offer quite linear content delivery, for example the dynamic group forming tools make sure that the learner gets an optimal experience that caters to them.
Cahoot platform is very well build to support creative and constructive learning content. Building on prior knowledge happens as the product emphasizes joint knowledge sharing and discussion with peers and also learning from each others, and there are great tools available for that (group discussions, submissions and peer reviews). The accumulated learning data that can be well monitored and helps the learner to keep track on their progress.
The courses follow a linear, predetermined user progression. Yet, there are some very good features that help make the courses flexible; having session recordings of live events, dynamic, progress based grouping, and chances to divide learners to smaller cohorts even if some content is common to all cohorts. For the facilitator, the analytics tools make it easy to see and compare how the focus on courses varies between learners and how the effort is spread between the lowest and highest.
The whole Cahoot environment emphasizes the opportunities for teamwork and common goal setting in support of learning, not just the goals of individual work. The platform allows social interaction through digital channels as part of the learning experience. Community sharing is both required and encouraged, both in formal assignments and in more informal, warm up and team building tasks. Cahoot also facilitates more real-time interaction. For example, video meetings can be arranged.

The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.

Cahoot platform provides great collaboration tools, and the courses encourage the interaction among learners.
The analytics keep the learners in track of their learning pace and the extent of their engagement in each course.
The course structure is very easy to follow, yet the platform allows differentiation and individual feedback on one's learning.
