Jennifer Richards noticed class engagement improve when students had more autonomy in their learning
Jennifer Richards’ Introduction to Business course covers a lot of topics. In past courses, Richards’ students weren’t engaged in the material week-to-week. When she introduced Packback, Richards noticed students taking initiative in asking thought-provoking questions and relating stories from all over the world to class concepts that interested them.
“I really think [Packback] has been super engaging and really got my students to care more about the course compared to what we’ve used before where I was the one posing the questions,” shares Richards, “This allows them some autonomy and some say-so in how the course is operating.”

Introduction to Business
“The thing I have really liked about Packback is how engaged my students have been. They are able to ask questions that are really important to them, that interest them [and] that motivates them to actually participate in the course. I’ve had questions from so many different perspectives… They pay attention to the news, and they bring up stories from all over the world that have to do with what we’re reading.”
