Use Any Device

Bring your own device. Any device. Students and instructors can access the Aktiv Learning app from any iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Additionally, the platform is fully accessible on Web with any Mac, PC, or Chromebook.

Aktiv Mathematics has a mobile-first design that ensures students receive the same experience no matter where they are. Students take advantage of the Aktiv Learning mobile app to work and study on-the-go in places like riding the bus or train, or even on campus when they have downtime.

Question Randomization

Aktiv Mathematics – Aktivate Student Engagement in STEM (14)

Question Randomization

All problems in Aktiv Mathematics can be automatically randomized so students receive unique numbers, variables, or parameters. Unlike other learning systems, Aktiv Mathematics randomizes multiple variables per problem and delivers students full explanations with their specific set of parameters. Instructors choose how many variations of each problem students receive to help them build mastery of specific learning objectives.

LMS Integration

The Aktiv Mathematics gradebook can be synced with any popular campus LMS such as Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, or D2L. The gradebook and associated columns can be customized to separate the various assignment types, to present individual assignments, or display summary columns for each type.

Aktiv Mathematics – Aktivate Student Engagement in STEM (16)

Flexible Grading Policies

Every assignment in Aktiv Mathematics has a multitude of grading policies that can be customized depending on the assignment type. Settings include points per problem, participation credit, late submissions with penalties, variable attempts per problem, penalties for incorrect attempts, and more.

Integrated Proctoring

To ensure academic integrity during quizzes and exams, Aktiv Mathematics offers optional integrated remote proctoring via Proctorio. When turned on, Proctorio locks down student browsers and utilizes a sophisticated artificial intelligence system to detect unwanted behavior via student webcams and microphones. After the assignment is submitted, instructors receive a detailed report that outlines any suspected cheating.
