About This Course

Published 7/2015 English

Course Description

This course is a how to reference of on-line tools that Educators can use in their courses to increase engagement, and deepen the learning experience for their students

Course Overview

We will first look at building an E-learning Game using Google Slides(or Powerpoint). These are a fantastic way of adding an element of fun while reinforcing learning.

Using Google forms we will then set up an auto correcting Quiz or assignment. This quiz will auto reply to the student, allowing for immediate feedback to the learner.

After this we will then look at setting up a Peer review system using Google Forms, Google Sheets and apps. These are fantastic for project type work and for courses that have a lot of students.

This course is an evolving course. That means that I will be adding to it and improving it over time. And if you have some suggestions of tools that are useful to on-line educators, let me know and I will try to include it.
