Acumen is a software designed to enable interactive learning within the classroom, shifting the teaching process from a one-way communication to a collaborative approach that encourages student participation.
Acumen facilitates scheduled courses where learners attend real time video enabled lectures at specified timings.
The entire course follows a structured format, meaning lectures, discussions and submissions happen at a specified time.
Learners also have the option of taking up courses which allow them to learn at their own pace.
They are provided the content beforehand, and given a deadline before which they need to complete course readings and assignment submissions.
Organize lesson plans for the semester, build courses for students and save time on grading. Keep track of the classroom, monitor student performances and offer remedial courses.
Prepare a day-to-day schedule of lesson plans, topics to be covered, time required for a topic, for the entire academic year.
Create, upload and share video and audio content, PPTs, and documents, and import content from external sources.
Track student attendance, conduct in-class group activities and engage students with quizzes and tests
The autograder automatically grades objective tests such as quizzes and multiple choice questions. With smart grading tools, evaluate subjective assessments such as Q&A in a faster, more consistent way. Now focus on improving course delivery instead.
Performance Analytics identifies which topics a student finds difficult, individual performances, time spent in completing an assessment and average class performance, helping you provide timely guidance.
Provide customized feedback for each student. The built-in course authoring feature helps teachers to create personalized courses for students that include videos, PPTs, audio and more.

Monitor performances of each classroom from each branch of the institution; ensure timely completion of syllabus and consistency of content delivery at all levels of the institution.
Acumen’s multitenancy feature provides management with reports on the performances of teachers and students for each branch of the institution.
Teachers can collaborate on lesson preparation using content accessed from the central content repository, or a senior teacher can create one best course followed by all the other teachers. Monitor whether each teacher follows the course and delivers the content the exact same way, and ensure that the same standard of teaching is maintained across all classrooms.
Track each teacher’s progress with weekly reports and analytics on course completion.
Assess teacher performances through each student’s average grades over the semester and the classroom’s pass percentage with Acumen data.
