Through adopting Revel, they have been able to easily assign reading in line with learning outcomes, monitor student engagement and identify students who need support, on what is an intensively taught course. This has resulted in observed improvements in student preparedness and contribution in
Revel replaces traditional textbooks with an interactive learning experience giving lecturers the ability to track engagement from their students - inside and outside the classroom.
Senior Lecturer, Melanie Weaver, acknowledged that digital content is ubiquitous and necessary for providing more a more personalised and engaging learning experience:
“My experience and feedback in sessions indicated that students weren't engagingw ith the textbooks that we had given them as a core reading for the module. So, they were only just using lecture material, and nothing else. And so I thought it would be a way to get them into the habit of reading, following or prior to their lectures.”
She wanted to use a solution that was intuitive and accessible for all that they could easily use on their own devices.
“The students were really engaged with the deadlines, they were really trying hard to meet them, doing the reading before their lectures, or certainly around that time”
