Student Engagement: Instructors can integrate polls, quizzes and other activities into their presentations to make the traditional lecture more interactive. Instructors using these methods have seen student participation increase to as high as 89% to 99% of their class1. Students can also take notes, respond in real time and mark important or confusing content, using their laptops and mobile devices. Questions can be asked anonymously to avoid potentially embarrassing criticism from peers. Student activity is automatically compiled into a personalized study guide, contextually linked to recorded class sessions. Content Management: Instructors can easily manage presentations, videos and documents through an instructional content management system called the Learning Library. The library integrates educational content and creates learner analytics collected throughout the teaching and learning lifecycle. Easy to use archive capabilities and share/publish functions give instructors complete control over their teaching materials. Learning Analytics: The Active Learning Platform captures rich, real-time behavioral data on class attendance and participation as well as results from quizzes and polls, lecture capture usage, time spent studying and more. The solution delivers intuitive dashboards and reports to instructors so they can identify at-risk students and intervene to help students before exam time.
