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.

Matric live provides comprehensive, valid pre-curated material. The combination of notes and video lessons is a good and engaging idea. There are several ways for learning; practice, mock exam, practice exam and a casual multiplay. Therefore the student should have easy time to find a suitable mode for studying even if they don't always have much time to invest.
The learner should know what areas to train, and they are free to take any lesson any time. The learner's knowledge on the area is assessed and it affects the baseline - new questions and certain features open when the learner has reached a certain level in the exams. There is a lot of material and large scale of lectures and training questions. The material is very clearly divided to topics that follow CAPS.
In Matric, learning progress is very individual, as all students can study according to their needs. Yet, as the learning outcomes have a fixed effect on progress, learning progress is directly comparable between users. Each module has a clear start and finish, and the performance statistics give the learners clear goals to work towards.
The app allows the learner to act and progress autonomously, but there are some ways how the learning community is present in the app; The learners can challenge each other to quizzes and see how they are doing when compared with the average learners. Individual approach is very justified on a support app such as this.

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

Matric offers a massive information package with good examples, pdf's and videos to learn from.
The app is easy and effortless to use, and the tests can be done several times to test learning.
Gamification elements enrich learning and bring a feeling of a learning community.

The supported learning goals are identified by matching the product with several relevant curricula descriptions on this subject area. The soft skills are definitions of learning goals most relevant for the 21st century. They are formed by taking a reference from different definitions of 21st century skills and Finnish curriculum.
