Audio features

Build a connection with online students with built-in, easy-to-use audio feedback. Faster than typing, and students love it!

Formatif's feedback cycle:

Step 1

Students utilise your learning content such as lectures, videos, and activities, and complete weekly learning tasks which they submit to Formatif.

Step 2

The student's tutor reviews the submission, decides if it meets the task's requirements, and provides formative feedback on the task.

Step 3

If the task is complete, it is included in the student's portfolio which is assessed at the end of the teaching period. If not, the student implements the feedback and tries again!

The student now moves on to the next task!
