Feb. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- Orlando, FL ( February 19, 2013) - Via Response, an emerging leader of cloud-based “Bring Your Own Device” student engagement platforms, announced today it has launched its new Question and Assessment Manager (QAM). Via Response’s new QAM provides a robust suite of capabilities that enable instructors to create, launch, and organize synchronous and asynchronous questions, polls, case studies and assessments across multiple terms and course sections with no need to export question data.
With Via’s QAM, instructors can easily create a variety of question types that can be synchronously pushed to student devices to engage them in any classroom configuration, including large hybrid/distance learning courses where students participate remotely through video capture. Via also enables instructors to create assessments on the fly from a global question bank that can be accessed from any location, for any course section/term, through any standard browser.
The new QAM also includes robust organizational functionality, including question tagging and global search capabilities that enable instructors to organize their questions and assessments, and to quickly locate questions for future use. Via’s QAM supports both synchronous and asynchronous scheduling of polls, quizzes, case studies and homework. From a single scheduling wizard, the QAM also allows instructors to simultaneously schedule the same assessment across multiple classes at different time intervals.
Derrick Meer President of Via Response states, “I'm excited about the advanced instructional design capabilities we are able to provide to instructors with our new Question and Assessment Manager. We understand how busy instructors are, which is why we created dynamic scheduling for any question or assessment. With Via, instructors are no longer forced to export question data for use in future course sections or to create multiple copies of the same assessment for different sections of the same course.”
Via Response’s mission is to help engage the digital generation in the classroom by utilizing the mobile devices students love to facilitate better learning in any classroom configuration.
