Join us over lunch from 12:30-1:00 in November to level up your teaching game!
11/9 12:30-1pm – Level Up Student Progress Tracking: Moodle Roadmap
Do you wish students were more on top of deadlines in your course and better able to keep track of their progress? Roadmap is a tool you can build into Moodle that provides students with an interactive visualization of course activities and assessments. Students can use the Roadmap to monitor progress and completed activities. In this session, we will overview the Moodle Roadmap tool, discuss why instructors and students use it, and share resources to help set it up.
11/14 12:30-1pm – Level Up Analyzing Learner Data: Intelliboard
IntelliBoard is a learning analytics dashboard connected with Moodle that can provide you greater insight into how your students are interacting with your course. Utilizing reports in IntelliBoard you can easily identify at-risk learners and where they are struggling. There are also a variety of reports that can aid you in identifying what needs to be graded or improved in your course. In this session, we will focus on the basic IntelliBoard reports and how they can be utilized in your course.
11/15 12:30-1pm – Level Up Your Grading: Gradescope
Are you interested in seamlessly administering and grading all of your assessments, whether online or in-class? Would you like to save time grading and get a clear picture of how your students are doing in your class? Gradescope supports variable-length assignments (problem sets & projects) as well as fixed-template assignments (worksheets, quizzes, or exams).
11/16 12:30-1pm – Level Up Your Presentations and Discussions: VoiceThread
VoiceThread turns traditional presentations and discussions into engaging, interactive experiences that work in asynchronous online classes and in-person classes. Learn more about how you and students can create presentations and discussions using this new tool that integrates with Moodle.

This workshop will introduce participants to Yellowdig, an online discussion and engagement platform designed to empower students to participate meaningfully in discussions with their peers and build a learning community.

11/29 12:30-1pm – Level Up Student Engagement: Top Hat
Top Hat is a teaching tool that enables instructors to engage students with compelling content and activities, online, in person, or both. In this workshop, we will focus on using Top Hat to provide interactive opportunities during synchronous class meetings.
