Verso Learning has introduced the free Verso app, which works on any device, to the U.S. market.

Verso app gives teachers the ability to create a challenge (inquiry-based learning activity) from audio, video, images and embed content from other sources (YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, URL). Students participate anonymously, and each response invites further discussion by classmates. Students are required to submit their own ideas before gaining access to other responses.

Teachers can measure students' understanding and engagement, and can view participation data that shows quantity and quality of student engagement.
