Designed for Active Learning

Engageli is a comprehensive learning environment purpose-built for higher education.
Delivering engaging virtual, hybrid, and in-person learning experiences,
Engageli is specifically designed for active and collaborative learning.





Engageli supports both on-site and online learners in blended classrooms.
Specialized technology features were developed for on-site learners (i.e., picking up the on-site learners’ microphones for off-site learners to hear them, but not playing the audio in the physical classroom speakers, which could cause an audio-feedback loop or echo).

Bandwidth-optimized browser-based technology requires no installation
  • Stream high-quality video clips controlled by the instructor
  • Engageli provides an anonymous mode for asking questions and providing answers, which encourages broader participation and supports an inclusive learning climate
  • Cloud-based access for all, including those without the newest computers, mobile devices, or the fastest internet connections
  • Browser-based technology requires no installation
  • Integration with popular LMS
  • Designed for accessibility and to protect student privacy
  • State of the art encryption


Engageli recreates the engaging small group learning of an in-person setting with
the tools and analytics of online technology.

Collaborate with peers and instructors through persistent Q&A
with support for anonymous mode, as well as communicate through chat messages (private, instructor, tablemates, everyone). View learner / co-instructor feedback from several channels, including chat and emoji-based thermometers.

Based on active learning principles, Engageli’s most unique feature is its virtual tables of up to 10 learners each. Learners can be assigned to a table by the instructor or self-select one to join. When not at tables, learners can be addressed and seen as one large group similar to a lecture hall. While seated at a table, learners can converse amongst themselves to discuss class lecture concepts or group project assignments. Engageli also supports collaboration tools, such as Google Docs or whiteboards, both native and Miro.

Learner engagement and participation are captured across class sessions. 
Detailed analytics are available in a dashboard for instructors to view and download.

Example of Interactive polls in Engageli
Integrated features ranging from interactive quizzes, polls, and content sharing help make active participation a seamless part of learning

Interactive polls and quizzes (i.e., single choice, multiple-choice, text-based) can be integrated into standard lecture presentation materials to gauge learner understanding and participation.


An Engageli virtual classroom is created for each class section.
Each class session is recorded with closed captioning for interactive and collaborative, asynchronous access via an Engageli Playback Room. The same secure URL is used for the class sessions and Playback Room.

Engageli Playback Rooms provide:

  • Learner access to any authorized recorded class session; learners can engage in a session individually or with a cohort (two - 10 learners)
  • Shared player controls to manage the synced recording
  • The ability to post Q&A, anonymously or named
  • Note-taking time-synced to the recording
  • Screenshots with annotation capabilities and hyperlinked time stamps
  • Session download for offline learning

Interactive, self-paced session recordings include polls and quizzes

Engageli offers several great functions. The most important feature for me is the way it uses tables. Unlike other web-conferencing software, where breakout groups are slow and awkward and break the contact with the rest of the class, Engageli’s tables act more like real tables in a face-to-face classroom. For synchronous online work it is the best I have used by far.

Engageli did everything I hoped for in terms of ability for students to easily and authentically engage with each other online but did not add any barriers or complexity that technology can often introduce.

"The first time I used Engageli all I had to do was look at the animated faces of my students as they were sitting at their tables to know it was working. It allowed them to connect and interact with each other as naturally as they may have done if we were in person.

We need online tools that support classes, not just meetings. Engageli represents the next level in platforms for teaching and learning.
As we craft our strategic directions for the future, we need to be intentional with our EdTech ecosystem. Engageli supports our vision to reimagine the learning experience for all our students.
I decided to do a session almost without slides and just base the class on communication, really taking advantage of the features that the Engageli classroom offers. I slowed the pace down a bit too. It was a nice experience and it all seemed to work really well!
Engageli is so profoundly different conceptually from other standard video conferencing systems: it’s purposely built to facilitate the infinite possibilities of active learning. Right at the heart of Engageli is the pedagogical process of ‘discovering’ the affordances of 'decentralising' the e-classroom. In short, more instructor ‘table-level thinking’ is the way to go, and that’s why Engageli is really exciting for me!
