QUT | eLearning Services | Open Web Lecture (OWL)

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is currently piloting the new web-based application Open Web Lecture (OWL), a student response system that enables academic staff to encourage student engagement on a needs basis.
Features of the OWL application include:

  • virtual learning in physical spaces
  • collaborative technology which enables participants to connect via a wireless network using a laptop or mobile device
  • encourage student conversation and input in teaching spaces
  • enable student group work and interactive activities
  • collect and poll student responses
  • promote a sense of community.

Testing of OWL has indicated the potential for use in other QUT environments such as seminars, workshops and conferences.”
