Moon Levinson, a student in dental school, connects to the system at the beginning of the school day. On the main screen he sees a general snapshot. What lesson is taking place now, what assignments and tests he needs to feel and also general messages that pertain to the whole class.
It moves to the current lesson and the zoom opens with a broadcast of the lesson. In the system itself he finds the order of the topics of the lesson together with theoretical material from the presentation. When the teacher wants to combine readings, a presentation or a joint work of the class, he opens the correct module that is integrated along the way.
In the middle of the lesson about World War II he wants to ask a question about the Ribbentop agreement with the adult. To that end, he votes virtually, waiting for the teacher to pass the broadcast to him. He asks the question and the teacher decides to return it to students who will have a discussion.
To this end, he opens a whiteboard where a discussion takes place between the whole class.
At the end of the lesson the teacher gives a research paper, do a roots paper for Rudolf Hess. On Friday Moon Levinson entered the system to work on the task. He enters the system and sees that he has another week to submit the assignment. He entered a class that was to re-read the instructions.
A week later he connects to the system again and sees that it is the last day for the task. He presses a button, uploads the file and sends it for review.
The next day he gets a message on WhatsApp and sees that the teacher has gone over it and given him a grade. He connects to the system and sees the score
Lacarda Levinson, Moon's sister, has no computer of her own. Because her brother was on the computer.
When he finishes his school day, she logs into her account. Sees the lessons she missed and that she needs to complete. She enters the first lesson and at the top of the page is the recording of the lesson.
The lesson is divided into topics according to the timeline of the lesson. While incorporating materials capable of different media. At the end of the lesson he is subtracted from the list of lessons to complete and then she sees the homework given and when the defense is. Home lessons are flooded on the main screen.

Not only that the learning experience has not developed much in the last 200 years, but also remote learning is not much beyond a video of frontal lectures to a group of student
Technological barrier as there are households with poor connectivity(or none), some families do not own enough computers.
Students feel as in a silo and they lack social relationships.
Students have individual needs. Some can be way ahead of the class while other struggle.
Students had some expectations from digital services products due to their technological Literacy.
prolonged remote back-to-back sessions have their cognitive toll and fatigue.
How might we create an inclusive e-learning experience that will have more value than watching recorded lessons and will take into account students' individual needs?
Each student will be able to attend the live class or watch recorded lessons on his own term. All the communication with the school will be via the system - between fellow students, teacher-to-class, or teacher-to-individual students. The school will offer "soft" content, so students can even attend ceremonies.

As a user, the dashboard gives me a snapshot so I can see If there is a live class to attend or a list of classes I have missed and need to watch. I can also see current tasks and when they are due, and notifications to me or to my whole class.
I can see when the next one is going to take place when there is no live lesson.
The class lobby shows me the full syllabus for the semester. Each lesson has quick access to related materials as well as access to the lessons themselves. I can also communicate with the teacher, send homework and read updates.
The lesson screen features a live video of the teacher. As the teacher speaks, the system auto-transcribed the text below. Later on, the teacher will be able to moderate the text and process the content on the screen.
Next to the player, I can see the lesson agenda, downloadable files, or the class chat, where students can talk between them.
After scroll, the live video is minimzed and fixed to the top-left corner of the screen to accompany the written text of the lesson.
The lesson includes also rich media that the teacher shared during the class.
