Interactive Audio

Get your students engaged with audio materials online with inline questions and discussions

How does it work?

Listening to content related podcasts are important to study activities that take place in almost every course. However, students are often only passively consuming the audio content.

This low-barrier tool adds interactivity to the study material and transforms learning into a more collaborative learning experience. It allows teachers to flip the classroom by letting students answer simple questions before class while going into depth during class discussions. Additionally, teachers can let students comment and start discussions embedded on the audio timeline to increase student autonomy even further.

Tool Features

The tool enables teachers to add multiple choice questions, open-ended questions, or a combination of both throughout the document. Additionally, teachers can let students comment and start discussions embedded on the timeline to increase student autonomy even further.

Teachers have the possibility to add attachments to questions or answers.

Teachers can get insights into the learning process by sorting the input of each student on the longest threads, the newest input or the most upvoted comments.

The tool allows teachers to grade the performances of students answering practice questions and synchronize the results with the LMS.

Teachers have the ability to download all the data in the assignment as a .csv file.

The copyright feature of the tool prevents students from downloading or modifying the study material.

Pedagogical value

Teaching value

Flip the classroom and activate your students during asynchronized learning. Teaching students how to annotate provides them with invaluable skills for engaging with study material. It helps students to think more critically, it increases retention and boosts confidence in their ability to analyze more complex material.

Learning value

Collaborative annotations are a learning strategy that engages students in critical reading, critical thinking, writing, and collaboration all in one activity. Annotating helps to build a better understanding of the study material. When students annotate, they are forced to evaluate what the content is saying, creating a clear conceptualization.

The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form.
