Created to streamline feedback in design courses, Parti is a live, in-class participation LTI app that allows students to use their smartphones to snap and post images of their work. The instructor can then immediately select, draw upon, and discuss submissions, allowing for quick and direct feedback.

Given I now realize that the 'brief' about my presentation above isn't the clearest, you can check out my "Parti in the Classroom!" poster presented at a recent symposium. It will give you a bit of context on what I'll be presenting though there will definitely be more in the presentation itself.

Of course, if you have any questions please feel free to shoot them my way. Thanks!

I plan on attending your session.

Do you have any documentation on setting up the App we could look at beforehand? I've visited the your site and only found relevant information for instructors within your Canvas instance.

We are in the process of developing a course and would like to experiment with this application.

Hello bdye,

Thank-you for your interest and (hopefully) attendance! Sadly I do not have any pre-session App materials at the moment as we are in process of open-sourcing it as I type this message. I should have more concrete items – documentation, link to code, etc – at my presentation next week, and if you're looking for some one-on-one discussion and guidance post-session, I am more than happy to do so!

Thank-you for asking – as I imagine others are wondering the same – and please do let me know if you have any other questions.

I must admit, I don't know how to do that! Do you think we could figure that out at some point?

Thanks Keroleen!

Thanks again to all those who attended and feel free to ping me at should you ever have questions or would like to follow up further.

Thank you for your sessions. When I get back I'm going to look into setting this up.
