Below are some of the key features of Engageli
Built For Academia
Transforms traditional virtual classrooms into interactive and collaborative spaces.
Enriches the learning experience for students and educators alike.
Student and Table Based
Engageli facilitates dynamic discussions and breakout sessions by using a unique Table based approach
Tables engage with the course material and each other, fostering a sense of community even in remote learning environments.
Lessons become more informative and engaging due to dynamic polls, word clouds, easy-to-use Raise Hand features for quick question asking.
Engageli integrates multimedia elements into its interface making it easier to follow a lecture or communicate and work as a group at a table.
Using Engageli as a Group Collaborative Space
Engageli has a feature that allows groups to meet together, without an instructor present. This group collaborative option utilizes the Playback room of the Engageli classroom. The steps can potentially be confusing so we have compiled them here for digestion:
The Group Leader will enter the Engageli classroom and select the Playback room tab at the top of the screen. Once selected, click Enter Playback Room
Once in the Playback room, the group leader will click the Invite & Info button. A link will appear in the middle of the screen.
Click Copy to copy the link. Then as group leader, you will need to share that with members of your group. This can be done in the Groups tab of Blackboard, via the Yellowdig community, email, or text message. It is not important how you share the link, just that your group members get the link.
Once other members get the link, they will click the link to access the group space. This is a permanent link and will remain the same link that you use throughout the course while doing group work.
