Understoodit in May 2012, with the goals of making classrooms more interactive and giving students an opportunity to voice their confusion anonymously. Understoodit is a device agnostic web app that runs on devices students already own – smartphones, tablets, netbooks and notebooks – and allows students to anonymously, and in real-time, indicate if they understand or are confused, thus virtually eliminating a student’s hesitation in saying “hey, I don’t get this” during a lecture in front of 250 other students. Teachers get instant feedback using their own devices on the content they are teaching, and can modify their lectures in the moment to increase understanding.
