Lumio, the digital learning tool from SMART Technologies, was first evaluated by Veracity in 2022 with high rankings in Accessibility and Student Engagement. Veracity has revisited the product to re-evaluate and publish an updated report in the Veracity Marketplace for 2023. Educators can access the marketplace and view the evaluation results (after registering for a free account).
Veracity’s evaluation noted in-app guides in additional areas of the user interface, helping new users to become familiar with how to create and display presentations. Guardians also noted “green dots” now displayed on new templates and pre-made resources indicating a new resource to improve teachers’ searching experience. These were among the top enhancements moving Lumio’s score in the Ease of Use category from 4 to 5.
Lumio also earned a new category of evaluation for Reporting & Analytics with the addition of the Activity Dashboard. This “major improvement” – as quoted by Guardians – gives teachers a record of student performance on formative assessments, moving the platform beyond primarily student engagement to a comprehensive instructional delivery system (at a fraction of the cost of similar tools).
