Kritik Inc. (Kritik) today announces the release of its latest update to its education platform for professors & higher-ed students. A new discussion feature which will allow for more increased engagement for students who are learning online.
As many students were forced to transition their learning online as a result of COVID lockdowns, their quality of learning has decreased. “What we’ve found is that 60% of students feel less engaged with online learning, 63% have indicated that online learning has impacted the quality of education they receive, and 32% of students may not enroll in courses in the fall due to the sub-standard learning experience online education has provided them,” iterated Carine Marette, co-founder and co-CEO of Kritik.
Kritik’s discussion feature was created to address the gaps students face in online learning, “We know students want more personalized feedback on their assignments to help direct their remote learning, but professors are often limited by time. Kritik fixes this,” concluded Marette. Kritik’s discussion feature allows students and professors to post questions, poll the class, engage in group discussions on course topics all while students are learning remotely. Kritik’s AI-driven technology can automatically score student responses to discussion topics and pinpoint students who are not engaging with the material and guide them towards solutions.
Kritik’s discussion feature joins its peer assessment tool as mechanisms specifically designed to enhance student learning. With Kritik’s peer assessment, students can assess each other’s work anonymously and then provide feedback on the evaluations they received. This exposes students to new ways of thinking, strengthening their ability to provide critical feedback & motivates them to create higher-quality submissions.
