curriculearn.dk is a modern, digital learning tool for teachers at all levels, from elementary school to the university level. It is developed by active university teachers with more than 15 years of experience and is free to use for both teachers and students.
curriculearn.dk allows you to structure and organise your written course exercises and use them to train your students' written exam skills in an easy and straightforward manner. curriculearn.dk incorporates several types of assessment tools, including grading and student peer assessment.
Compared to pen and paper, a digital platform not only allows you to easily manage your course materials from anywhere on the planet and from many different devices, it also allows you to track the progress of your students in real time.
For example, you can continuously track if your students are following along, encourage them if they fall behind, and dynamically adapt your teaching to their performance. Moreover, you can rate student assignments, have them peer assess each other, and provide them with critical feedback that help them learn and improve towards the exam.
Yes! Using curriculearn.dk is free as in free beer, and there is absolutely no catch. Free for any teacher, for any class size, and for students to use. The system is developed as a research-based teaching project at Aarhus University, Denmark.
curriculearn.dk is developed as an academic and research-based teaching initiative by Asc. Professor Ditlev E. Brodersen at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark. Initially, in 2014, Ditlev Brodersen developed the system as a simple sandbox for experimenting with various teaching styles in his own biochemistry classes. Since then, curriculearn.dk has matured significantly and been adopted by other teachers and is today used across many discplines from arts to science.
Student peer review is a teaching style in which students are asked to assess each other's assignments and provide constructive feedback to their peers. This has a number of advantages, not only do the students get to see how other students tackle the same problem, they are also asked to think about what are the most important aspects of their hand-in. Peer review is used in many schools and universities across the world, from elementary school to the PhD level.
