One App to Replace Them All

With Harmonize, students gain a more cohesive, unified online course experience. Instructors spend less time training and more time teaching, using tools that share a user interface paradigm – all while institutions consolidate the high costs of using disparate tools.

Let’s see how Harmonize compares to other well-known tools.

Vibrant, multimedia grid-like discussion boards in Harmonize.
Chat and polls

Provide every student with a way to participate.

Encourage more vibrant and frequent discussions by giving students multiple pathways to participate, including text, video, and audio posts. Use annotations to provide richer feedback and facilitate peer-to-peer learning. Instructors can also spark new conversations using chat, polls, and Q&A boards.


Streamline grading, communications, and analytics.

Eliminate tedious tasks and help instructors identify students who need support.

From plagiarism detection and LMS gradebook integration to autograding, Harmonize saves hours of valuable time for instructors. Use Engagement Insights to see which students are excelling — and which ones are struggling. Then, use 1:1 chat, polls, annotation and Q&A to actively engage students — all in one place.

“We decided to use Harmonize because we wanted to provide more collaborative and flexible learning tools for students. Plus, with Harmonize, we can see which students are progressing towards goals, which are actively participating, and which have dropped off in engagement. These kinds of insights help empower our instructors to trust and take action on their gut-feelings about which students are in trouble.”
