One person contributes, the whole school benefits

Syllabus Catalog: Easy Access to Online Resources

Lesson preparation is one of the main parts of every teacher's daily work. If lesson planning resources can be cloud-based, teachers can unify teaching materials and test/exam papers in a structured and systematic way, which will make them more convenient to access and use.

The full name of the TEAM Model Cloud IES Syllabus is the Structured Syllabus Catalog, which provides a platform for users to jointly arrange course materials and test papers in a structured and sequential manner, including "Personal Syllabus" for individual teachers and "School Syllabus" for school teachers to co-use. It helps school teachers to prepare lessons in the cloud and arrange teaching materials (PowerPoint, HTEX, PDF, images, videos, web hyperlinks, etc.) and test papers (questions) into the syllabus.

Personal Syllabus is a feature that IES provides to all teachers for free, while the School Syllabus is a feature that is managed and provided by the school after the school purchases the IES Smarter School Management Service (i.e., the TEAM Model Smarter Learning and Assessment Management Platform). 

When using HiTeach for smarter teaching in the classroom, HiTeach's Teaching Resource Area displays the syllabus resources from the IES 5 platform, with a tree-like display of Personal and School Syllabus. The teaching materials can be saved, imported, opened, or tested according to the teaching scenario, making it more convenient to access prepared materials.

HiTeach 5 supports IES Syllabus's materials and question banks

Can be imported or start testing directly

Details of the use of the Personal Syllabus and the School Syllabus are as follows:
