Videos for missed points

Fri, 09/01/2017 - 12:32

Here’s an innovative idea to promote deep learning: allow students to make up missed exam points by creating their own short videos to explain the missed concepts. Once evaluated for accuracy, the videos can be posted for classmates to discuss and also use for study.

Polling Tools

Fri, 07/28/2017 - 12:28

I was recently asked by a faculty member to help find a way for students to sign up for topics to research in his class instead of him assigning them each topic. Using this particular process does two things. First, it gives the student the power to choose a topic that interests them. Second, it gives the faculty member some extra time to engage with students. A web search will reveal lots of options for creating a poll. Some options require that users sign up for an account and others do not. Some tools are easier to use while others are more flexible and have more options.
