Sabaq Lite Server is an offline copy of Sabaq.pk website intended for schools. It not only gives schools an easy access to all of Sabaq.pk videos, but also, the ‘Practice Test’ feature for all grade levels is added. It also allows school principals and school corporate administration to monitor the usage statistics for each school so they can see how much their students and teachers are benefiting from it.
Sabaq Lite Server consists of a Raspberry Pi computer with 128GB SD Card, a Wi-Fi Router, and a UPS with 6-8 hours of battery backup. You can use it from any laptop, tablet, or mobile phone through a Wi-Fi connection. It also plugs into any existing computer lab so students and teachers can access all its content from school’s computer labs.
You can use Sabaq Lite in three ways in a school. They are:
You can use a regular LED TV, a Smart TV or a Projector with a laptop to connect to Sabaq Lite Server through the local Wi-Fi in the school. This allows you to access all of the Sabaq.pk content to play it as lectures in the classroom.
Playing Sabaq videos as lectures in the classroom gives you the following benefits:
Most of the students need to revisit the same concepts after the teacher has taught them. Or at times, students are forced to learn concept totally on their own due to lack of qualified teachers. This is where a self-study computer lab becomes very useful. You can plug in Sabaq Lite Server to your computer lab’s LAN and all the lab computers will have access to Sabaq Lite content.
Students can use Sabaq Lite content in the following ways:
You may have great teachers who are highly motivated to improve student learning. But their own concepts on the subject may not be very strong or might have become rusty over time.
You can ask your teachers to watch Sabaq videos before delivering a lecture themselves to make sure their concepts are correct and fresh. And, they can also learn from Sabaq’s teaching style to improve their own teaching style.
Better trained teachers are the best way of improving student learning and you can use Sabaq Lite for it.
Sabaq Lite allows you to monitor the video usage and practice test statistics. You can find out which exact videos were watched how many times and when. This gives you great insight into areas where students might be having difficulties so you can provide further help to them.
You can also see which practice tests were taken by students and teachers and what were the results. All this data will remain completely anonymous and does not identify the person who watched the video or took the practice test. Thus, the overview of the statistics will help the administration in improving the results without discriminating the students and teachers.
Here are the types of people who might be benefitted from this monitoring:
Sabaq Lite Server uses the famous Raspberry Pi computer, along with 128GB SD Card, a Wi-Fi router, and a UPS with a dry battery having 6-8 hours of backup. Sabaq Lite Server acts as a local copy of Sabaq.pk website for your school.
Sabaq Lite Server is installed inside the school premises, providing the Wi-Fi access to everybody in the school who has a laptop, tablet, or smartphone with a WiFi capability. Additionally, you can plug Sabaq Lite Server to your school’s computer lab and suddenly all the lab computers can access Sabaq Lite content locally.
With Sabaq Lite Server, everybody in the school has high-speed access to all of Sabaq Lite videos and practice tests. Watching videos through this local connection is very fast as compare to watching them over the Internet (even if your school has an Internet connection which most schools do not).
For a school to fully benefit from Sabaq Lite Sever, here are the things it needs:
Each Sabaq Lite Server has the option of connecting to the “Cloud” for storing its video usage and practice test statistics. This allows remote monitoring of Sabaq Lite data as described above.
In order to connect to the cloud, Sabaq Lite Server requires the following additional things:
As you can see, Sabaq Lite Server in each school is uploading its usage data to the Cloud. The school principal, corporate administration, and donors have remote access to this data through their mobile phone or computer.
This remote access is a very powerful tool that helps improve compliance from schools and ensures that schools are actually using Sabaq Lite properly.
