How to make every lesson interactive

first iconGet started with what you already have. Upload and make any of your favorite resources (PowerPoints, Google Slides, and now, any video) interactive. You can even upload videos directly from YouTube.

second iconGive every student a chance to show what they know. Add real-time checks for understanding that have built-in accessibility features, like audio responses and Microsoft Immersive Reader.

third iconCreate lessons students love. Add media like Virtual Reality, simulations, and websites to support meaningful connections and keep every student engaged.

fourth iconKnow where your students are every step of the way. Get real-time insights into students’ learning during your lesson. Later, use reports to inform the next day’s instruction.
