Harmonize offers a suite of engagement tools that fully integrates with leading Learning Management Systems to provide an interactive space for students and instructors to engage in more dynamic and enriching exchanges. Unlike conventional online discussion platforms that rely on “threaded discussions,” Harmonize works like the social platforms students use outside of school. And with the addition of Harmonize Chat, students can connect directly with other members of their class without searching across multiple applications. Presence indicators let Harmonize users know the online status of their classmates. A student or instructor can quickly scan for other students who may be online to say hello or start a conversation. Now, instructors and students can work directly from the LMS to participate in more engaging online discussions--without having to download any additional software.
