Studies have shown that active learning and interactivity can significantly improve student outcomes. Briteclass provides a number of active learning facilities. Students can take notes and create bookmarks during a live lecture. These are then automatically synchronized to the recorded lecture, so that a student can easily revisit the areas he noted during class.
Students can also engage in discussions with other students, and can ask questions of the faculty both real-time and after class. Student comments and discussions are also linked to a particular time in a lecture, or to a particular media object, thereby creating an important context for the discussion. Furthermore, students can readily see what portions of a lecture have been viewed by other students, allowing them to focus their studies on what other students have deemed important.
