Qulto Education that belongs to our Qulto portfolio, is a software component supporting the creation and usage of interactive education materials. This software primarily provides assistance to teachers and lecturers working in the public education sector and public collection institutions, though it is effectively applicable in other fields, as well. The module gives the opportunity of learning in a fun way within the framework of school, library, and museum activities. Consequently, educators can use the recently popular electronic devices preferred by their students to raise interest in a given subject through combining online and offline education materials.
The software is easy to use: teachers and educators working with Qulto Education can create tasks within education packages. Education materials can be built up from public collection data, internal and external sources, texts and media contents. These tasks – quiz, timeline, word search, puzzle – by involving students in interactive activities enable covering a certain topic or subject – let it be the history of a castle, the ballads of János Arany or some questions related to natural sciences.
Educators can put together the education materials either themselves or in cooperation with their colleagues, and the completed materials can be made available in the institution’s open access catalogues. The presentations, exercise sheets can be integrated into the course schedule both in online and offline mode, contributing to cover a given topic with the help of public collection contents and other materials.
