At Ment.io, we listen to our users, be they educators, administrators or students. After many conversations and surveys, the main objective that we walked away with is that our users prioritize ease of use across the board.
If it’s important to you, then it’s important to us. That’s why we’ve made some neat changes to our user interface, which will make the Ment.io experience more intuitive for users of all kinds.
Now the Agreement Level, that score that appears next to each answer, will be labeled and designed in a clearer more purposeful manner.
Until now, the score has been on its own, without a description and it has been color-coded either red or green. With the new updates, every Agreement Level score will be the same color. This is important because Agreement Level does not measure the grade of the answer, rather the level of consensus throughout the ensuing conversation.
Adding and viewing attachments is easier than it’s ever been before. The ability of professors to add attachments to their discussion questions and for students to view them, has been improved by moving the location of these attachments to accompany the question itself.
Now students will be able to find these important references for the discussion topic more easily and thereby be better equipped to participate in the discussion.
More Discussion Improvements
You will discover other changes and improvements to your Ment.io experience going forward. Here are a few of them to keep an eye out for:
- Improved text box functionality
- Ability for professors to tag students answers and comments as insightful
- The header menu has been rearranged according to user behavior
- Cleaner and clearer comment boxes
- Highlighted comments are more visible
- Students can now cancel their votes
In addition to all of these changes, we gave Ment.io a fresh look with new buttons, new colors, and clearer interactions.
