MURAL IN THE CLASSROOM

We have a great Template library to get you started using MURAL with your classes:

Collaborative Note Taking Template
Take notes collaboratively and creatively. This template was born out of frustration with the droning, one-sided nature of Zoom lectures.
It’s a space to take notes collaboratively with your classmates and friends, designed to run parallel to a lecture, but adaptable to a variety of settings — breakout rooms, reading a book with your friends, etc. Write what you hear, ask questions, explore related ideas. This template will help you bring interaction and conversation into lecture classes. There’s space to both take notes and synthesize them. It’s an interactive space with enough structure to guide you, and enough freedom for you to make it your own.

Study Guide Template
Prepare for exams by collaboratively building an engaging study guide.The Study Guide template provides a framework and suggested study techniques to prepare for school exams. You can collaborate on the guide with classmates or build it on your own and later invite your classmates  to quiz each other and make studying fun.
