The Packback team released a new feature on the Packback Questions platform called Sparks. Sparks work a bit like upvotes or likes on other social platforms but with a much more specific purpose.
The Packback Blog
Electronic discussion can stimulate and develop critical thinking skills in students, and we’re not the only ones who believe it.
“Explore” is Packback’s search feature that allows every Packback member to explore the best discussions from every community across the country.

The Packback team loves our feature, Real-Time Coaching, to shorten the feedback loop and deliver coaching when it matters most; while a student is still writing their post.
The start of 2016 has been an exciting time at the Packback office! Not only did we move into our own space and bring on several amazing new team members, but we also launched a brand new platform for our Curiosity Communities, Packback Questions!
The first few weeks in a Packback Questions community set the tone of the rest of the semester. In those first few weeks, the goal is to get everyone on Packback to understand the importance of asking great questions, learn the community guidelines and start posting. The Packback Questions tutorial ensures that every community will get off to the best possible start!
In Packback Questions communities across the nation, thousands of questions are posted per week. That is a lot of questions flowing through the platform, which could make it easy to miss some of the best posts. The Featured Tab places the best discussions from every community in their own easy-to-navigate tab.
