Features of Engage

- Clear Passcode (iOS)
Save valuable class time by enabling teachers to quickly and easily clear passcodes on student devices.
- Single App Mode (iOS)
Minimize distractions by guiding devices into a specific application and ensuring all other apps are inaccessible.
- Eyes Up Front
With a single action, teachers can temporarily “black out” / lock the screens and provide a custom message to an entire classroom of devices, directing students’ attention to the teacher.
Teachers can quickly and easily create polls to check for student understanding. These “pop” quizzes can be shared within seconds to students in order to gain immediate feedback and adjust instruction as needed. Student responses are made available to teachers in a way that makes it very easy to identify which student(s) may require additional help on a particular concept.
Engage provides teachers with the ability to centralize course content and easily present it to students in a week-by-week planner-view. Teachers are free to use whatever system they are familiar with (iTunes U, Google Drive, Dropbox, personal websites - anything with a URL) to share content. If a content URL changes, teachers do not need to inform students, thus greatly simplifying the task of ensuring everyone is accessing the correct content.
- Mirror Device (iOS)
Mirror device allows teachers to share their screen, or select a student’s screen, to be shared with the rest of the class via AirPlay for group collaboration – without having to share an AirPlay password.
Teachers can send messages to selected students in their class. This method of communication enables teachers to interact with specific students, without disrupting the concentration of other students.
