While we cannot force students to read items before completing their assignments, it is possible to set up “Actions” in ANGEL which require students to click on certain content items and/or complete certain assignments before additional units, content items, or assignments are available. This post contains directions for setting up an action which requires students to create a discussion post, submit a dropbox assignment, or complete an assessment before the next unit is available.
Looking for a way to add dynamic content to your course? Look no further than RSS feeds – which stands for Really Simple Syndication. The reason to add an RSS feed is it’s a great way to keep your students up-to-date on the latest happenings in a particular area of interest!
Using grading rubrics for discussion forums can have countless advantages. Students know what’s expected of them before they create their posts, and can tailor their posts to meet the instructor’s criteria. Instructors have an easy way to grade posts; with a couple mouse clicks, the post can be graded, complete with comments. Usually, instructors use the Submissions –> Grade forum links to grade discussion forums, but using this method of grading with a rubric will prevent students from viewing the completed rubric.
