The Online Academy pedagogical concept is based on the idea of the “flipped classroom”. Students learn on their own and individually at home or on the go.
Individual or group events in a classroom or online are then used to allow students to apply what they have learned and gain confidence in their speaking ability. The advantage of this system is that students can learn on their own when and where they want, allowing the time set aside for interacting with other students to be used optimally. Unlike traditional textbooks, using an online tutorial program enables students to learn independently and receive direct and immediate feedback.
The concept is supplemented with a social learning component that allows the student to interact with other students.
