Ment.io is the leading AI-discussion platform for engaging and assessing students in hybrid / virtual classrooms, in a more streamlined and efficient manner. You can manage the entire discussion on Ment.io, from posing the question, to holding the discussion and finally assessing the quality of students’ participation. With Ment.io you are able to see where the class stands as a whole, and each student individually so you can focus less on education logistics, and more on deeper learning.

Ment.io has two main elements:

  1. The home page consists of a list of questions asked by any of the participants.
  2. By clicking on each of the questions the user will be transferred to the “Discussion Page”, where they can view either the whole thread of the discussion or a concise analytics screen that focuses and highlight areas of cohesion and the leading answers.
 
  • Ask your class a question to get started with a new discussion.
  • Give all your students a voice. Let them share their knowledge, data, and experience by answering, debating and placing votes.
  • Review each discussion results as analyzed by the proprietary Al and scoring mechanism.
  • Use Ment.io’s assessment components to help grade your students

Ment.io’s scoring engine is powered by a smart algorithm that helps organise the discussion. The Ment.io score is based both on smart peer review and data analytics. It is not a simple average of votes, but based on the discussion structure and similar past discussions.

Each discussion is stored in a graph database, then Bayesian and Machine Learning algorithms decide the score.
Ment.io also follows the activity of each of the participants to decide their domain expertise and include this information in the scoring mechanism. Analysis on typical behavior of different departments is also incorporated into the algorithm.

Ment.io is the first smart discussion tool that implements Bayesian and Machine Learning tools to higher education classroom discussions. The structured discussions allows the algorithms to assign a level of confidence to each of the contributions, thereby pointing to the best answers, comments and replies.

Furthermore,
Ment.io analyses each participant’s behavior to decide on different bias levels and compensate for human psychological biases such as “group think.” All discussions are kept in a knowledge base, hence allowing for a modern “knowledge analytics” and much better use of past knowledge in future decisions.

At any point, you can press the “Invite” button, and invite new participants by inserting their email address. Email notification is then sent to the new user for a quick sign up process. You can invite both internal and external users, inside and outside of your classroom.

Yes – you can respond directly to email notifications which will automatically add your answer/comment into the conversation on Ment.io.
