Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Joshua Adams Increases Student Engagement with Packback
Dr. Joshua Adams shares how Packback helped to increase student engagement in an online forestry course that students had previously shown little excitement in taking.
“All it took [to get students engaged] was to seed some questions related to the class and allow the students to start developing their own questions.”

“The other neat thing that I saw [on Packback] is [students] competing with each other to see who could get the better [Curiosity] Score, who can ask the best question. And that’s really what I like to see, is that engagement, and looking beyond just taking a quiz, but trying to find those deeper questions for this material.“
