Why use RiPPLE?


Develop students’ critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication

RiPPLE engages students in a variety of learning activities such as creating and evaluating learning resources which help them develop critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication.




Enhance your students’ learning by providing personalised study pathways

Not all students learn at the same pace or have the same learning needs. As such, RiPPLE uses AI algorithms and an adaptive engine to provide students with personalised learning pathways to suit each students' unique needs.


Actively engage students in live and recorded lectures

One of the most effective ways to engage and improve teaching is to provide students with active learning activities during instruction. RiPPLE helps you do this with a classroom response system that also allows absent students to participate during lecture recordings.


Built on peer-reviewed research and featured as an exemplar educational tool by EDUCAUSE.
