Acadly is a user friendly, intuitive program that allows for active students engagement before, during and after class.  Klaxoon was designed to make meetings more productive and interesting but it can also be used to make classroom sessions more effective and interactive. Together they provide an interesting, easy to use, combo with which you can create a complete, interactive learning experience that extends well beyond the actual class meeting time.  In this session, we will demonstrate the basics of both programs in an interactive session that will show participants how to combine the two programs to extend learning outside of the classroom. We will show the basic features of both programs and show how easy and intuitive it is for both instructors and students to use them. In addition, three graduate students, Kayla Kinkead, Malcolm Moody and Elizabeth Allen, will provide a student perspective on how this worked from their perspective.

After the session, participants will have a basic understanding of how the tools work and how they can be combined to create an interactive learning experience. They will have experienced the tools from a student perspective and will know how to set up any kind of learning activity using both tools.  We will show how to provide study materials before class, set up interactive activities during class and follow up with a summary of the experience and materials for further study.  We will show how to do brainstorms with electronic post it notes, do instant word clouds, quizzes and opinion polls.
If you plan to attend our session, we have set up the interactive platform that we will be using at https://app.klaxoon.com/join/XPSRJK.  If you plan to attend and want a first hand experience of the software, send us an e-mail (jvos@uidaho.edu) and we will enroll you in the Acadly Course that we are developing for this session.
