Brand Ambassador Beverly Paz shares about her experience with Packback Questions.
When attending larger schools, such as the University of Alabama, it is nearly impossible to avoid larger classes. Within two years, I have been in several lecture-based classes with a couple hundred classmates. The issue is that when the class is too big, the professor can become overwhelmed and there is no class time for interacting in small groups. How can students maximize their courses when no class time is set aside for practicing concepts, asking questions, critical thinking or interacting with other students?
While not completely ridding the educational system of non-engaging lectures, Packback does offer multiple features that begin to remedy the situation.
