Prollster for Education
Prollster is a “social learning” platform designed for lifelong learners. By fostering active engagement and “soft skills” such as teamwork and collaboration, we make learning better for students and instructors, enabling our customers to deliver higher quality learning at a lower cost.
Automate Participation Marks
Questions linked to specific course content can quickly be created by instructors, with the ability to assign deadlines and awards points for student contributions. These points are automatically converted into marks within your gradebook, automating the calculation of student participation marks.
Create Collaborative, Customizable Groups
Automatically assign students to small, personalized groups based upon your customized criteria (including level of familiarity with course material, location or language preference).
Reward Student Engagement
Prollster uses gamification to incentivize student engagement and collaboration. Users can rate each other, and earn Prollster Points for their participation. Awards are given for being the first to respond to a question, or posting the response that was voted most insightful by their peers. At the end of the course, students earn a Prollster certificate, which shows their Prollster Score and any awards received.
Access Actionable Analytics
Quickly and easily access tailored insights for students, instructors, and administrators via an intuitive analytics dashboard. Quantitative and qualitative data are aggregated in an easy-to-read visual interface that allows instructors to efficiently assess individual and group progress.
Engage TAs and Peer Helpers
TAs and student peer helpers can be nominated and assist students within groups and across the course. Research shows that the use of student peer helpers has a positive impact on student engagement and interaction, enhancing learning retention–particularly in blended and problem-based learning environments.
Seamlessly Integrate into any LMS
Prollster connects to the most popular Learning Management Systems (“LMS”) and Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) platforms via the industry standard Learning Tools Interoperability (“LTI”) interface, providing seamless, single-sign-in access for all Prollster account holders.
