Wooclap is an interactive platform that maximises the possibility for smartphones and computers to become exceptional learning tools that make learning awesome and effective. It was developed in collaboration with neuroscientists, course technologists, and teachers to maximise information retention and enhance learning during lectures, whether in a classroom or remotely.
There is no app to download, nothing to install: students use a link to connect to the platform on their smartphone, tablet, or computer, and answer questions online or by SMS text.
Wooclap is compatible with all teaching models (traditional, synchronous, asynchronous, distance, hybrid, HyFlex…) and integrates with many tools that teachers use on a daily basis (PowerPoint, Google Slides, Genially, Canvas, Microsoft Teams…). This means they can use Wooclap’s many question-types and features within their existing Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

The Open Access movement has changed the world of publishing forever. As Open Access publishing evolves and gains momentum, traditional publishing houses have a hard time keeping up. The need for author-friendly, flexible and highly configurable systems, has left many publishers in the backwaters. More and more academic societies are now turning to open source technologies to manage digital publishing on their own. And that is where Open Academia comes in.
Open Academia is ALT’s publishing partner for Research in Learning Technology.
