Lucidchart aims to improve the professor-student learning dynamic through interactive charts and diagrams

lucidchart-application-higherHigher-ed faculty and staff are always looking for new time-saving tools to deliver instruction more efficiently and effectively.

If you’re searching for new and innovative ways to present complex material to students, you might want to take a closer look at Lucidchart.

Launched in 2010 by Lucid Software, an web-based diagramming app with more than 2 million users, Lucidchart aims to boost collaboration between professors and students.

Similar to Google Docs sharing functionality, Lucidcharts provides the ease of collaborating in real-time with students—eliminating back-and-forth revisions—and allows professors to provide feedback throughout the entire lifespan of the design project.
