What do our users think?

We have had a large number of students and instructors try out Achieve so far. Here's what a few of those users had to say about it.

'I found Achieve was readily accessible and was not complicated to pick up or to use anywhere, any time'
- a student user

'As I continue to progress in my position, there are more responsibilities outside of the classroom that require more of my time. Having Achieve relieves some stress for this course as I know it takes less time for me to prepare things on my own'

– Ryan Elsenpeter

'For some reason, these students worked together far more than is common. Like a lot more. They have long meetings in the library several times a week, and a significant portion of the class goes. It is, in one word, amazing.'

– William Griffiths

'The pre-lecture activities helped the students to participate more in the class.'

– Harpreet Malhotra
