EHLA’s research and development work is centered around four dimensions which are crucial to the success of intelligent education - the pedagogical, publishing, teaching, and social dimensions.
EHLA provides learners with an intelligent learning environment where their weaknesses are closely tracked, thoroughly diagnosed, and prescribed with personalised teaching solutions, including target-oriented exercise drills and teaching videos recorded by professional teachers.
The diagnosis and mapping of students’ strengths and weaknesses occurs at individual, class, grade, school, and even regional levels.
Our system is equipped with powerful features to help students learn effectively while avoiding blind or repetitive drills, whilst our target-oriented exercises help students rigorously eliminate weaknesses. Each exercise question comes with a tutorial video that provides students with immediate solutions to any and all queries.
EHLA’s user terminal system is comprised of student app, a teacher portal and a parent/tutor app.
Our Teacher Portal is tailored to teachers setting homework assignments and online student performance monitoring through our analytical reports. Our school portal is tailored to teachers setting homework assignments and online student performance monitoring through our analytical reports. Our school portal offers teachers great insight into the specifics of student strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to develop appropriate teaching strategies in response.
Meanwhile, our parent/tutor portal is developed for parents to easily observe the status of students’ learning progress, and receive professional learning recommendations from EHLA.
