Engage in Academics: University of Leeds

Written by Gabe Anderson — Posted in Customers

“I am already finding my job much easier with the (Articulate) products.”
– John Heritage BA DPhil CBiol FIBiol
Teaching Fellow and Senior Lecturer
University of Leeds, UK

Microbiology professor John Heritage uses an extensive library of Articulate Engage interactions to help teach his course on Microbiology (MICR1010 Mikcrobes and Man). You can view a sample interaction from his course:

View example: Preparing a slide for microscopic examination

You can also browse the entire library of Engage interactions used in Professor Heritage’s course.

Some comments from the professor:

“It takes quite a lot to get a jaded old academic like me to get excited but when I bought my Engage license, it was like giving myself an early Christmas present. I teach microbiology and students rarely have any practical experience before coming to University. It has taken me just a couple of days to produce step-by-step presentations to guide students through all of my Semester 1 Level 1 practical exercises – I think this is amazing productivity.”

We already know that using Articulate products helps students achieve better grades, and now we see that Engage can help students be better prepared for microbiology.

Do you use Articulate software in your classroom? Let me know how.

This example is simple and straight to the point with a clear presentation style. It goes to show that we don’t have to produce something that looks too clever for its boots to get the point across with online resources.
