The best learning outcomes happen when the learning is interactive and the student is involved. Interactivity in eLearning aids students to deepen their understanding of the subject matter through experimentation and ActiveTextbook makes that goal easier to achieve. Educators can adapt existing textbooks to the specific demands of their classroom, receive feedback, and update on the fly. Commenting, quizzes and self-assessment tools bring the student actively into the learning process.
Additionally, ActiveTextbook is designed for integration with learning management systems such as Blackboard and Moodle, and allows for simple organization of assignments, quizzes and assessment reports delivered hand in hand with the learning material. The online quizzes allow instructors to see if these learning gaps are class-wide and to use this data to improve the assessment process. Furthermore, ActiveTextbook’s commenting system can allow for easy interaction between educator and student.
ActiveTextbook takes learners from reading to interacting by allowing Instructors to enrich course materials with videos, images, audio clips, texts, attachments, and interactive widgets in order to liven up the text and further encourage students to learn. In addition, ActiveTextbook allows learners to make notes, highlight the text, bookmark pages, use the built-in dictionary, and add their own interactive benefits to the books. With this platform, learners can share their books, which gives them a window into how other students read.
