Choosing a Course Type

If you plan on assigning activities and monitoring students performance, you will need to create a course and have students join the course using the Course ID.

Make Time to Assist Your Students

Use some class time to help your students get comfortable registering, joining your course and navigating the platform. Show them the various activity types. Outline if you will be assigning activities or tests and what they will be expected to do. Show them where they can go for help. By devoting class time to this initial training process, you are also showing your students how important you feel the platform is to their class work and success. We also encourage you to take advantage of the student Getting Started materials.
