Technology can transform the learning experience, but why’s it so complicated?
Engaging groups of people through lectures, presentations and demonstrations is at the very core of what you do. Bringing your subject to life in the classroom beats any textbook. You need technology that enables you educate, but not something that’s going to take ages to set up or conflicts with the way you work that has served you well up till now.
Glisser makes lectures and seminars interactive, using technology for student engagement rather distraction.
The Student Engagement Toolkit
Pick and choose the features you want at the touch of a button. You can create interactive lectures in minutes.
Real-time Lecture Slide Sharing
When lectures are great, people want the presentation materials so they can remind themselves and revise at their own pace.
Glisser shares slides to student devices instantly, the moment they are presented, and they can write personal notes against each slide.
At the end of each class, they can download everything (that you allow them to!) so they have a searchable, digital copy of everything in one place.
Live quizzing has been used in education since the 1970s, because it’s a quick and easy way to get an understanding of the progress students are making. Plus, it’s fun, and means less marking!
Thankfully, technology has moved on from clunky clickers and expensive, complicated hardware. Glisser’s live quizzes are integrated into PowerPoint so they’re simple to run, and it’s easy to migrate existing quizzes from old software.
Traditional student participation has its downsides. Some people are shy, while others dominate and influence group-thinking. Questions aren’t captured to make it easy to evolve your lesson plan.
Glisser’s digital Q&A encourages anonymous questions from students via their phones and laptops, displayed on top of your PowerPoint slides at the touch of a button, and everything is captured in our analytics platform for you to learn from.
A simple way to track engagement, effectiveness and student progression
Use technology to deliver a better lecture experience, and to refine your teaching.
Simple Set Up
Technology is useful but isn’t a magical solution to poor quality lecture content, so you don’t want to be wasting your time fiddling with complicated software, or reliant on a tech support team to get you up and running.
Glisser works via your web browser or straight from PowerPoint, runs over the cloud (securely) and can be accessed by students via any device without an app download, on Wi-Fi or LTE/4G.
Glisser enables data to be collected down to the individual student, through polls, quizzes and digital Q&A. Understand their engagement and participation, but also their opinions, thoughts and learning challenges throughout the school year.
Take advantage of the opportunity to listen to them, and use this to evolve your lesson plan, cover points in more detail, or offer personalised follow up.
From One to 1,000
Glisser is a solution that can be used by a single, innovative lecturer, operating from just one laptop connected to the web. No hardware, no clickers, no local area network, no student app download.
Yet it is at its most powerful when entire departments or universities are connecting lecturer accounts, sharing insights and data with an administrator.
Hundreds of lectures happening daily, thousands of student questions and opinions, gathered into one platform.
