Odigia Highlights

According to Odigia, Inc, Odigia allows students to not only engage with course materials in a variety of ways, it also helps them develop the soft skills necessary to succeed in today’s workplace. There are multiple ways to engage the students, and it’s easy to proactively address areas that they might be struggling with:

  • The student experience is designed to help students keep track of their progress and understanding of the content, while collaborating with peers.
  • Odigia uses game theory to encourage students to complete the course by comparing their progress against their peers.
  • Odigia uses visual elements to help students know which content areas they have completed, flagged, and still need to complete.
  • There are many different ways to engage with the content. Students can start by interacting with the discussions or choose a topic from the course outline.
  • Students can highlight content and take notes, turn the glossary on and off, search, and print content while using Odigia.
