Why is Interactive Audio useful for learning?
Audio files are an interesting way for students to understand concepts. However, too often students are only passively consuming the content. By adding interactivity and social elements, you can increase deeper learning, as well as enable students to make use of the knowledge of their peers.

How does Interactive Audio work?
Interactive Audio is a tool used to encourage interactivity while listening to audio files. This tool allows both student and teacher to add discussion topics and practice questions on the audio file. These will be visible to everyone, which encourages exchange between students.

By encouraging interactivity, the instructor ensures that students are actually using the full potential of the audio file. This is supported by transparent analytics, information on possible intervention moments and straight forward moderation.
This tool was designed with the firm belief that its ease of use will determine its success. Therefore, depending on the teacher’s didactic method, the plugin allows them to create extra activities such as:
