Courseware and access to it aren’t the only innovations in online education. Many supplemental tools support classroom instruction at all levels of learning, helping students engage in the learning process and enjoy it. Student response systems: Teachers recognize the need for student involvement in lessons, but connecting with each student in every class can take time, especially if the class size exceeds 30 students. Although necessary for learning, engagement, response, and feedback are time-consuming. Apps like Socrative assist teachers in engaging students and diagnosing student performance. One of the reasons Socrative is so successful is that it bridges the gap between school and home, learning and leisure time. Students access their homework online, complete it, and the app grades it and provides immediate feedback.
