Educators and Students are using Squigl to boost engagement and information retention. Teachers and students turn lessons, homework, summaries, and responses into video that is effective at transferring knowledge. Squigl forces both teachers and students to think beyond text. It requires the creator to not only think of words to express their ideas but to choose their words in association with images and voice and, with appropriate music sound tracks, to tell stories. Faculty and Instructional Designers introduce the lesson and the topics included. They create Squigls to explain key concepts and allow both commenting and quizzing. Professors can build exam preparation using Squigl to make sure that students can focus on the primary topics. At the same time, faculty, students, and researchers present their research findings by imbedding Squigls to highlight key findings, while students submit Squigls as assignments to demonstrate their level of comprehension of the subject or key concept. Further, students collaborate on projects by creating team Squigls using Squigl's collaboration tools. Students create Squigls in class and submit them to their professors to demonstrate their comprehension of the subject. Squigl's collaboration features allow faculty to work with students to create any animated video project, allow faculty-instructional design team collaboration, or allow student group collaboration on projects.
