In addition to multiple-choice questions, you can use Learning Catalytics to ask questions in many open-ended formats, including graphical, numerical, algebraic, or textual questions -- for example, you can ask students to sketch a graph, select a point on an image, highlight a passage, or enter text and instantly generate a word cloud for the class. Learning Catalytics can also use students' responses to automatically and intelligently place students into groups for peer instruction discussions to maximize discussion productivity. You can use Learning Catalytics synchronously -- like you would use clickers in class -- or you can use Learning Catalytics to deliver self-paced or team-based assessments. And since Learning Catalytics is cloud-based, all student response data is automatically aggregated and made available to you (and any support staff you designate) in graphical dashboards so that you can easily monitor the progress of students individually and the class as a whole.
The Center for Teaching and Learning will demo the use of Learning Catalytics at the following dates/times in Mahan 220. Please see the CTL Educational Technology Demos Sign-up Form - Spring, 2018 to sign up for the demo.
