Drop a word

This card is a delightful icebreaker that lets learners share any thoughts in response to a prompt you set. All other words submitted by learners will drop down in a pile so you can see different responses.

Match-pair questions

This card presents learners with a set of pairs that they need to match correctly. This promotes critical thinking, strengthens memory retention, and offers a visually engaging way to assess and reinforce learning outcomes.

The Reflection Card

Sana's Reflection Cards prompt learners to pause, reflect, and provide thoughtful responses, fostering critical thinking by encouraging users to articulate insights and feedback. These cards enhance the learning experience by promoting a deeper understanding and application of key concepts through reflection and consideration of experiences.

The Notepad Card

With Sana's Notepad feature, learners can efficiently jot down notes, thoughts, and ideas during live sessions. The Notepad serves as a convenient tool for users to summarize key points, capture important information, and effectively manage their thoughts within the learning environment.

The Sticky Notes Card

Sana's Sticky Notes provide an interactive platform for learners to brainstorm, annotate content, and leave quick reminders during sessions, fostering engagement, visual organization, and creativity in note-taking. Users can place virtual sticky notes on relevant content areas, add annotations or comments, and engage in collaborative note-taking activities, enhancing the interactive and engaging nature of the learning experience.


The Sliding Scale

The Sliding Scale presents learners with a visual spectrum to express preferences, opinions, or responses by adjusting a marker along the scale, facilitating active engagement and providing clear visual feedback. Users can indicate their position on the scale to reflect their level of agreement or preference on specific topics or scenarios, allowing for nuanced responses and promoting interactive learning experiences within Sana.

The Poll Card

This interactive card is designed to engage learners by soliciting their opinions, choices, or feedback through polls. This feature enables educators or trainers to gauge understanding, preferences, or sentiments of learners, fostering a dynamic and participatory learning environment. Or why not just add a check-in poll to ask how everyone is doing today? By analyzing the aggregated responses, instructors can tailor subsequent content, discussions, or activities to better meet the needs and interests of the learners.

The Q/A Card

The Q/A Card is an interactive tool designed to deepen understanding and encourage curiosity among learners. No question is considered stupid or too small! This feature allows learners to view suggested questions, but also gives them the freedom to ask their own unique questions about the material. The Q/A Card provides the answer and cites the specific card where the information was discussed. This reinforces learning by linking back to the original context, empowering learners to take control of their educational journey and gain a solid understanding and confidence in the material.

The Flip Card

The Flip Card is an interactive tool that engages learners by presenting questions or prompts on one side and corresponding answers or information on the other side. It not only allows for the variation in how information is conveyed but also adds elements of engagement and interaction as learners have to flip the card to reveal the information. By incorporating Flip Cards in a course, you can create a better visual experience for learners while simultaneously making the learning process more interactive, win-win!

The Exercise Card

The Exercise Card is a dynamic feature in Sana that enhances learning by allowing educators to assign tasks or challenges that learners must complete. You can specify what learners need to submit, choose reviewers for the exercises, and monitor submissions as they come in. By integrating Exercise Cards, you can effectively assess learner understanding and application of knowledge, making the learning experience both interactive and practical. This not only tests learners' skills but also encourages active participation and engagement in the learning process.
