Computational ClassNotes

Bringing Advanced Computational Technology to Education





Intro

CCN takes the use of technology in teaching to a new level. From the professor's material, we produce integrated class notes, practice materials, homework, quizzes and tests. Our computational framework provides unlimited and interactive variations in material, auto grading, live analytic's and auto uploading to LMS. The result is reduced cost, decreased dropout rate, increased student success & grades; and more effective use of the professor's time.

Program Features

Lecture Notes

We transform your notes to a modern online and accessible format that includes interactive elements to help the student understand the content at a fundamental level.

Home Work

Students complete auto graded homework that is unique to each student. Each student accesses individually distinct and exclusive questions with unique URLs.

Quizzes

In-class quizzes offer students unlimited variated questions – no two students answer the same question. In-class quizzes generate live analytics that provide the professor with immediate insight to tailor and customized lectures.



Analytics

Professors can obtain, in real time, student results. The analytic s are granular and show live results of student responses. This permits professors to focus on those specific areas where students require more attention. Classes can be refined and customized to meet current student learning outcomes.



Tests and Final Exams

The fully customized course curriculum generates tests and final exams. Results are saved, auto-graded and automatically uploaded into the LMS

TESTIMONIALS

As a former Math 141 student in Professor Kelso’s class, the pilot program was not something I had expected walking in the first weeks. But CCN really did help me further my math education, as well as Mrs. Kelso did. The program helped me figure out how to factor and become more efficient at it. Which has helped me throughout Math 142 and Calculus I, this quarter.

Grading homework takes a lot of time. Having the students do their homework through CCN frees up time that would otherwise be spent grading homework, while still giving students the opportunity to practice what they have seen in class and to receive immediate feedback on their performance. I like working with CCN, as opposed to another online homework provider, because I value the ability to thoroughly customize the homework problems, and because CCN is not tied to a specific textbook

Having been a part of an initial deployment by Computational Class Notes, my colleagues and I see the power of the technology specifically when deployed on the cloud. We have seen the response from our students through more effective learning – moving through the material more quickly.

Professor Mary Ann Kelso

Olympic College

I can now provide to my graduate students the most advanced content that is dynamic and variable. Using live code, I can present relevant and varied examples to demonstrate specific content.
…..I can now provide weekly homework, that is graded and integrated to the LMS .... The homework provides unlimited practice variations, thus ensuring that students have a firm grasp of the subject matter.
CCN's technology delivered far more to BU than we thought possible, and already it is tangibly saving (me) time, effort, resources, budgets while providing highly advanced technology to enhance learning

Professor Madani,

Boston University

For a student that is motivated to perform well in Precalculus, the Online Notes are a great supplement for Professor Kelso's fast paced Precalculus course. I have learned some useful things for the Online Notes, that are not readily present in the required Precalculus textbook.

Over the past few years I have had the great privilege to work with a group of people whose values and ethics are aligned to mine. The CCN team is a mix of young men and women across the globe whose careers are beginning working alongside mature business executives. Together we combine our passion, energy, enthusiasm and commitment along with competence and high value skills to establish an amazing global organization that is challenging norms. Whats most important to me is the values and ethics that we each share and bring to our work.

In founding CCN, I have been able to live my long term vision of marrying my various passions. Of paramount importance, commitment to education, fairness in opportunity and receptiveness to possibilities with challenging existing education norms that are not meeting the needs of many of our modern students. I want to challenge head-on existing educational structures and publishing empires that are building their success on the backs of students while, not always providing the education that meets the future needs of humanity.

My decision to found CCN and its non-profit sister organization, Loss of Generality, is based on my concern about the failure of education.
Why do we continue to structure education in the 21st century with a 19th century model? We must challenge the status quo and demand more for this generation and those to come...

Wayne has been a technologist all his life. From early days of disassembling his first digital clock to current multi-device distributed system he has been peering under the covers and trying to make things work better.

Wayne and Dara worked together on a number of different projects before the CCN concept came into being.

I met Lucia when she worked with me at The Anne Sullivan Centre in Dublin. Our strong values and business ethics are very much aligned. We both share a belief in building successful organizations with others and using a collaborative approach to management. We are very committed to growing and developing teams while building success together.

As well as managing the finances and auditing processes, my work with CCN involves being a sounding board to Lucia and the team with regard to new opportunities for growth. Creating a totally new approach to publishing professors’ material - digitizing their work into discrete modules that can be purchased individually, pricing the material and working with Wayne to set up the revenue stream is exciting work. Specifically as we all work virtually, in several time zones and are dealing with a totally digital product and sales process.

My involvement with CCN began even before the company was established. As a student at University of Toronto, Canada, I worked with the embryonic technology and learning methodology that helped me obtain my undergraduate degree in Actuarial Science and Statistics. It was my first time to be exposed to programing and how using computer based visualization of concepts can enhance learning. I have since completed my actuarial designation and completed both FA and P certifications.

As part of the CCN team, I work with professors in the US and Canada on production, quality assurance and compiling English language for the artificial intelligence (AI) engines for the math-based curriculums

Trainee/Intern

Imran is completing his undergraduate degree in Psychology at University of Iowa and plans to attend Graduate School to study Computational Neuroscience.

Imran began his training with CCN in Spring 2018, working with the CCN team testing mathematics modules. Using CCN’s modules and methodology Imran experienced what many of the students who use our modules experience – his understanding and learning of complex concepts exponentially increased.

While continuing on his training path with our team in Ireland Imran’s role involves working collaboratively with the CCN team members in North America, Palestine and Nigeria. As he gains more experience his focus will be in the area of life sciences as CCN’s research in that field expands and it is aligned to his graduate studies.

Imran is also involved with athletics at university, which requires a tremendous amount of discipline and dedication. The modules really helped imran study and learn new concepts without impeding on his obligations to the university.

Imran’s comments when he initially began working with CCN, “Using the modules, I’ve learned more math than ever before in a short time. The modules teach me by taking core math concepts and applying them to an infinite number of challenging practice problems. There is no cheating and each question provides a solution whether you choose the correct or incorrect answer.
