Wave Connects Student Response Devices to Blackboard, Moodle
eInstruction has unveiled a new piece of software designed to simplify formative and summative tests in higher education. The software, Wave, connects the institution's LMS with classroom clickers and other devices.
According to eInstruction, Wave works with both traditional student response systems (classroom clickers) and mobile devices like smart phones, tablets, and laptops to capture real-time responses from students in the institution's central learning management system. It works with eInstruction clickers or eInstruction's apps for Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS X, supporting up to 1,000 students. The software accepts multiple question types, including multiple choice, multiple select, short answer, and true/false.
At present, the system is designed to support Moodle and Blackboard systems. However, eInstruction indicated that additional systems will be supported this year.
eInstruction Wave is expected to be available this quarter in the United States and Canada. Additional details were not available at press time.
