## Our assignments were designed to optimize learning.

### Mastery-based reviews to guide student study sessions...

## Beloved by educators

“As educators, comprehensive review is something we all want to provide, but it can be difficult to deliver. OpenClass makes it easy — far easier than any other tool I’ve used. Feedback from undergraduates and graduates was overwhelmingly positive. Unsolicited, students repeatedly reached out to let us know how useful they found the review and mastery activities.”
Gus Hahn-Powell
Assistant Professor - University of Arizona
“I was very impressed by OpenClass. I was impressed by the aesthetic of the interface—it was very beautiful to look at. I was impressed with the statistics that I got out of it afterwards—I could quickly look and see who'd finished, when they'd finished, and drill down and see details of what students had done—that was fantastic. I think it's a fantastic tool, and I think it fills in a niche that nothing else we have fills in.”
Dianne Patterson
Research Scientist - University of Arizona
“The interface is attractive, it's user-friendly, and the instruction is very, very clear. I basically just spent like half an hour or an hour trying to learn how to build a class and I was able to do it. One very interesting thing I noticed is that not too many students noticed that they leave D2L, so I think that speaks to how well OpenClass is integrated to the D2L system.”
