Over the past year, Interactive Media has been working on a web-based student response system to foster interaction in large classes. The result is Ripple — a free, open-source web-based tool which allows faculty to gather student feedback using a variety of question types from multiple choice to open response to a sliding scale. Ripple is currently being beta tested in courses around campus in order to prepare it for the campus-wide release fall term, 2013.
If you’re interested in learning more about Ripple or would like to test it out in your classroom, please contact us. We’d love to give you a demo, let you try it out in our course and listen to your feedback on how we it can be improved.
