Minerva developed the Active Learning Forum (ALF) to facilitate the types of active learning activities Minerva courses require, including polling, voting, collaborative editing, and easy management of breakout groups, all on one comprehensive learning management system.

The platform also collects student performance data that is in turn used to help personalize students’ intellectual pathways.
