Wondering what Engageli is? To It was created specifically to give teachers the tools they need to deliver synchronous and asynchronous, engaging virtual learning experiences. They are continually improving their product and incorporating partner feedback to make sure it offers a flexible and inclusive learning environment.

After its successful implementation in the Digital Currency Department at UNic, it is now also being adopted by the MBA (Distance Learning)!

Improved usability:

With more possibilities for adjusting your viewing experience, the brand-new appearance and feel offers a simpler, more intuitive way to manage and participate in an Engageli classroom. This new version's simplicity enables teachers and students to concentrate on having active learning experiences rather than learning how to use a digital tool.

New tab structure - In contrast to other video conferencing platforms, Engageli makes it simple to find the stuff you are seeking for whenever you need it.

Customize your view to open and close Chat, Notes, Q&A as needed instead of having a default view that doesn’t support your teaching or learning.

Switch between Dark and Light modes to choose a look and feel that is comfortable for you.

Activate classroom and table activities with a central ‘Actions’ button making it easier to find the tools you need as an instructor.

Search for chat messages, edit or delete sent messages, take and annotate screenshots in the chat to make the most of communicating via chat.

New modes of engagement:

Active learning is at the core of the Engageli classroom, so they have continued to add new ways for learners to have an active role in their learning and for instructors to see who is and is not engaging during a class session.

More Distributed Docs - Share Google Slides and Microsoft 365 Documents (in addition to Docs and Sheets) so learners can work collaboratively without leaving Engageli.

Polls for ‘smart’ small groups - Split the class into table groups based on similar or differing poll responses to have more control over the composition of table discussions.

New non-verbal reactions (including sounds!) - provide learners with multiple modes of staying engaged.

Enhanced collaboration and engagement in asynchronous playback rooms:

The asynchronous experience in Engageli has the ability to stay engaged with peers and interact with multimedia content, Engageli 3.0 takes active learning in an asynchronous environment to a new level. Plus built-in enhancements to reduce the need for external tools and platforms.

Upload external videos in the Admin Portal that can be viewed within an Engageli Playback Room so learners can collaborate with peers in their asynchronous experience.

Upload PDFs for learners to access at their own pace while in a Playback Room. Keep all classroom resources in one place!

Live session whiteboards are now included in the recordings for asynchronous viewing so learners who are viewing an earlier session can watch the real-time collaboration they missed, and can launch their own whiteboard to collaborate with others in the playback room.

Use Engageli to edit and trim class recordings to share the best version of the class with learners. No external video editing tool required!
