How have your classes changed recently?
In 2021 students are true digital citizens and as such are used to consuming information in a way that many traditional lectures and teaching styles do not deliver.
Not only due to COVID-19, but also because of the many digital learning sources available on the internet, education changes. Modern students do not want to sit passively and listen and learn. And to be honest, neither do teachers.

How have you used Stagecast in your classes so far?
Stagecast acts as a key element in my classes to create engagement and keep students (and teachers) stimulated though breaking up the monotony while building on the knowledge and key learnings of the class.
I use the Live Quiz, the Treasure Hunt, Polls, Q&A activities in my classes. The Treasure Hunt activity is brilliant in that it allows innovative ways to add value to lessons and student’s learning journeys. The Photo Collage activity can also be a great icebreaker for teachers struggling to get to know their students as well as they would in an offline setting. In general, what I love about Stagecast is that it offers so much more than just quizzes or polls. It truly is an interaction platform that offers the right kind of activity to create interaction in any part of my class.
How does Stagecast help create better online lessons?
Unlike other quiz platforms Stagecast is really useful to keep track of students through quizzes designed to reinforce their learning. Stagecast is hassle free through ease of use for you as an educator but also super simple for students to engage with. User experience tends to be a battle in higher education and Stagecast is one of the few platforms you don’t have to explain over and over.
