If you’ve tried to build a journal or digital workbook for your online course, you’re probably familiar with the problems that arise with PDFs or docs like formatting issues, distribution nightmares, and lack of integration with your LMS system.

The team at Wobo set out to tackle all of these pains when they created their digital workbook tool.

Wobo is a workbook you can easily build yourself and embed into your online course to engage students and keep them focused on your content.

The Thinkific app means your students don’t need to create an account or leave the course player to start answering questions. You can add interactive elements like tables, drop-downs, and fill in the blanks, and have them appear within your course curriculum for minimal distractions.

You can view student progress and give your students feedback in real time – no more waiting for assignments to be submitted. Wobo is the easiest way to build and distribute a digital workbook. We’re excited to show you more!
