Learn how the University of Michigan leverages Harmonize to design engaging in-person, hybrid & online activities.
Join us March 24 at 11:00am MT when Emily Ravenwood, Manager, Learning & Teaching, Academic Technology Services in the University of Michigan’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, will share how the College is using Harmonize to provide more ways for her instructors to communicate and engage with students in any modality. We’ll take a look at the Engagement Insights, a tool her instructors helped Harmonize prototype, and you’ll see how you can identify early signs of student disengagement. By the end of the presentation, you’ll have better insight into how digital tools and student engagement data can help you improve the quality of your online offerings

“Harmonize is flexible and very easy for instructors to use. You can use it for a wide variety of course activities, and it doesn’t require a lot of time investment. For our faculty, what’s most powerful is seeing which students are less engaged and being able to coax them back into the fold.”
