Research-based interactive learning techniques have dramatically improved student understanding. We have created the 'Interactive Learning Toolkit' (ILT), a web-based learning management system, to help implement two such pedagogies: Just in Time Teaching and Peer Instruction. Our main goal in developing this toolkit is to save the instructor time and effort and to use technology to facilitate the interaction between the students and the instructor (and between themselves). After a brief review of both pedagogies, I will demonstrate the many new exciting features of the ILT. I will show how technology can not only help implement, but also supplement and improve these pedagogies.
