New software to test the teaching

Among all the arguments and excuses over attrition smart money is on things universities can do to make it easier for students to stick with study. Yesterday CMM reported pilots of On Task, designed for teachers to text everybody in a course with advice and information specific to their circumstances. And now a learned reader points to Flux, an interactive programme for students that can show where they need help with course content and demonstrate to lecturers what they are getting right and wrong in teaching. Monash U tested Flux this year and an public “early access” version is due this month.
