Free Virtual Graduation Ceremony with Microsoft Teams

Free Virtual Graduation Ceremony with Microsoft Teams

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many students will, unfortunately, miss out on the chance to celebrate their accomplishments with a traditional graduation ceremony this year. However, a virtual graduation ceremony can still go ahead with Microsoft Teams.

From early May through July 1st, holders of a Microsoft Office 365 A1, which is free for educational institutions, will have the ability to host online live graduation with up to 20,000 attendees. A pre-recorded graduation and a celebration with “photos & videos” are also available.

zSpace: Wonderful AR/VR Laptop

zSpace: Wonderful AR/VR Laptop

zSpace is an AR/VR laptop that provides students with a new way of learning by bringing together the augmented and virtual reality technologies. Its learning methodology consists of a combination of hardware, software and educational content where students are completely immersed in a learning experience that facilitates the building of a curriculum around it.

zSpace applications offer a realistic study environment by providing virtual-holographic images that can be “lifted” from the screen and manipulated with the stylus. Some applications also provide multi-sensory feedback; for example, students working with a virtual heart can see it pumping, hear it, and feel it beating.

  • Edmodo – manages classrooms and engages students remotely, through offering tools and resources backed with a variety of languages.
  • Edraak – offers online education with material and resources for school learners and teachers in Arabic.
  • EkStep – provides an open learning platform with a collection of learning resources to support literacy and numeracy.
  • Google Classroom – helps classes connect remotely, communicate and stay-organized.
  • Moodle – serves a community-driven and globally supported open learning platform.
  • Nafham – hosts an Arabic language online learning platform with educational video lessons that correspond with Egyptian and Syrian curricula.
  • Paper Airplanes – matches individuals with personal tutors for 12-16-week sessions conducted via video conferencing platforms.
  • Schoology – equips teachers with tools for instruction, learning, grading, collaboration and assessment.
  • Seesaw – enables the creation of collaborative and sharable digital learning portfolios and learning resources.
  • Skooler – turns Microsoft Office suite into an education platform.
