The survey tool allows for the easy set-up of questionnaires that can be filled out anonymously to gather honest feedback and give quality assurance.
With the publishing tool, multiple people can work together on constructing learning materials. This advocates for thorough proofreading. The completed and approved curriculum can then be published to a scene of your choosing, and any later modifications made in the publishing tool will automatically be applied to the published version of the curriculum.
This is a great tool for data collection and to share information in projects. Who can edit or share a spreadsheet can be controlled by an admin.
A great tool to store and share files, bibliographic details, test questions, and study materials. Members of the scene may be given access to

Impressive content can be created to enhance the learning experience. Our refined
interface supports all display sizes, and the platform monitors time spent on each page
and sends feedback to the creator of the material. Materials are easy to reuse and share.
To protect the curriculum, the learning material cannot be downloaded.
New curriculum chapters are easy to make. Sections can be added manually, or existing Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, or image files can be imported. Narration can also be recorded or uploaded to each page.
The curriculum gives a learning time estimate for each page, and monitors each student’s total time spent in the overall curriculum and on individual pages. Participants can rate different aspects of the curriculum and give textual feedback to each part.
Video + test question
Video + presentation
A tool to assess students’ knowledge and provide them with feedback. In addition to
traditional forms of testing, it can measure knowledge by topic or provide adaptive testing, which can be useful when there are large deviations between students’ abilities.
When creating tests, you can choose from 16 question types. Questions can be copied from previously created tests or question banks.
The order of questions can be randomized, and they can be organized into random blocks. You can specify the total test time as well as the completion time for each question. Switching back and forth between pages can be regulated,
and test-taking locations can be restricted to specific IP addresses and can be protected by passwords. Detailed statistics pertaining to each student and each question are given immediately
upon completion. It provides information regarding students’ time spent answering each question, and their results. The structural coherence of the test can be monitored with Cronbach’s alpha.
