Securely Capture Student Content 

Student Generated Content is being captured and used by many educational institutes to promote educational outcomes and credentials. However it is critical that this is done with security and privacy in mind. ContestPad allows educators to capture and harness video, photo, sound and textual content from students while providing critical features to protect the content from unwanted access. 

Activate and engage students 

Once student content is created, activate engagement by promoting students to vote for entries and/or leverage expert panels to assess entries and provide feedback to entrants. ContestPad allows educators to credibly capture authenticated votes from audiences, providing protection from fraud. Expert Panels can leverage ContestPad to assess digital entries and even live events using detailed assessment criteria. 

Assess, reward and reuse 

At the completion of your contest reward your participants with prizes, badges and bragging rights. Analyse the success of your contest by measuring contest engagement through views, shares, votes and entry analytics.

Student Content, data and votes can then be downloaded and reused to solidify learning for other students and also leveraged as promotional brand material. All rights to content and data are owned by you, free to do whatever you like.  

Don't just take our word for it!


“Using Launchpad6 not only brought our competition all together but it is efficient, allowed us to get information quickly and ensured everything ran so smoothly.”
