Product Description

Möbius is the industry-leading digital learning platform that promotes learning based on the cognitive science of successful learning, facilitates evidence-based optimization of learning, and supports an ecosystem of asset creation and sharing. Excelling at creating and deploying interactive teaching and assessment content for higher-educational institutions around the world, and specifically designed to meet the unique and complex needs of STEM, Möbius is optimizing the world of digital education.  The Möbius Chest Agreement is for licences only, it does not include the Starter Content Bundle, please see below for more information.

IMPROVE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Improve end-to-end student learning outcomes with continuous testing, Interactive Narratives, and automatic feedback that encourages learning through active processing.

  • Inline assessment with Immediate Feedback establishes initial understanding and interrupts the forgetting process
  • Combining audio, visualisations, interactivity and inline assessments, Interactive Narratives enable dual-channel learning that also leverages active processing to increase retention

REDUCE INSTRUCTOR WORKLOAD

Reduce instructor workload with automatic grading, intuitive algorithms, and a supportive ecosystem of asset creation that has a proven effect on the time required by an educator to create and assess their online courses.

  • Automatic grading reduces instructor hours
  • Providing engaging online course materials frees up time to work directly with struggling and advancing students
  • LTI integration reduces time spent navigating separate platforms and interfaces

LOWER COSTS

Less time spent grading, and the replacement of a physical textbook reduces costs for institutions as well as students.

  • Online courseware is a fraction of the cost and replaces a physical textbook
  • Reduce the number of teaching assistants and teacher hours with automatic grading

PROVIDE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

World-class analytical information focused around student and content performances ensures all aspects of the educational experience are optimised to their full potential.

  • Instructor dashboards provide insight into student understanding in a concise view
  • Review past results and determine points of failure in order to enhance course content

UNIQUE STEM CAPABILITIES

Differentiated strength in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with a world-class engine designed with STEM in mind.

  • Sophisticated question generation to ease the burden on STEM instructors
  • Mathematical equivalence ensures students are properly rewarded for their answer, and instructors are not required to verify every possible solution

CONTENT

Please note, the Starter Content Bundle is NOT included with Möbius bought through the Chest licence, other than for smaller institutions buying less than 750 licences.  The Bundle is available at a price of £3.25 per user directly from DigitalEd.  This decision was taken because it would allow Möbius to be offered at the lowest possible price.

Möbius licences do come with a number of free courses and questions.  The question banks and free course content can be downloaded directly from those pages and are completely free for anyone to download and use.  Institutions are also invited to add material to these pages, meaning the amount of freely-available content is growing all the time.
