Thursday, July 23, 2020 — 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM EDT

Facilitators: Mary Power (Centre for Teaching Excellence) and Victoria Feth (Centre for Teaching Excellence)

Location: Online (LEARN Site)


Online quizzes have many uses ranging from providing an incentive to students to keep up with course content or prepare in advance for an activity, to testing students' understanding of course concepts throughout the term or on midterm and final exams. In the asynchronous part of this session, participants will explore LEARN’s Quiz tool and resources in a LEARN course shell. The synchronous scheduled session will provide an opportunity for follow-up Q&A regarding quiz setup and grading options. Participants will be enrolled in the LEARN course shell several days prior to the synchronous session, which will be scheduled in Bongo Virtual Classroom.
