Are you looking for a collaboration tool which will allow your classroom teams to work remotely by brainstorming, designing, and planning project ideas using visual tools and flowcharts? If so, then MURAL may be the tool for your classroom environment.
Teachers and students can use MURAL as a dynamic way to present material, encourage class participation and increase student engagement. MURAL can be used for solo or group project organization and presentations. MURAL is an interactive planning and mind mapping software, which encourages collaboration and creativity. Think of MURAL as a blank canvas or whiteboard where users can draw or type ideas and add visual images or videos. MURAL works across many desktop, iOS, and mobile platforms in both synchronous and asynchronous learning environments. During project collaboration, many ideas can be shared with the group and then the individual group members have the opportunity to choose their favorite idea.
MURAL provides the opportunity for faculty/student interaction and student/student interaction. Faculty have the ability to visibly monitor the progress made on and the individual contributions to group projects. MURAL has greatly increased the comfort level of our students working within team environments. This virtual team experience skillset transfers easily into other courses and into the workplace.
In addition, MURAL provides a safe space to be creative. Your data is safeguarded with state-of-the-art security practices. This environment provides users the ability to share data and ideas in a safe online space.
