The Riff communication platform helps students make meaningful connections to each other within virtual learning experiences. Riff fosters the development of social belonging that leads to better outcomes. In NSF-funded research, we found that learners using Riff for intra- and inter-team communications in online courses had up to 30% better performance and persistence (than those who did not).
At Riff, we embrace social and learner-centered as key pillars of our platform, which includes communication tools (video and text chat), real-time metrics (collective visual feedback), and over-time insights (interaction analytics).
Allows for easy communication by text between all members of the course at different levels of scope (public, private, direct)
Instructors and TAs (or coaches) typically substitute Riff for all other modes of communication in an online course — it replaces messaging, discussions, email, video, voice, and document sharing.
Easily accessed by users in any text channel by clicking the video camera icon in the upper right corner of the channel view.
The signature Riff purple ball shows who is dominating the meeting. It moves in real time as conversation dynamics change.
Key insights about your connections across the course and detailed interaction metrics about your small group meetings.
