The Assignments application allows students to complete and submit assignments online using I-Learn. The Assignments application promotes easy grading and reduces the trouble that often occurs with paper management.
Blogs are often used in I-Learn as online journals, either personal, only the student and instructor can see the posts, or public, all the students can see the posts. Blogs are generally text based but some will include images, audio, video and other file types.
Content Areas can be best described as organizational tabs configured for better information management. Using Content Areas increases the organization of the class, allowing students to easily navigate within the I-Learn course.
Courses must be created each semester, course names often need to be edited, and the old courses need to be saved through the archiving process. A good course set up will enable a positive learning environment.
A Discussion Board is a tool that allows members of a class to communicate with each other. Instructors create forums with specific topics of discussion. They are kept in a central location and can be accessible to all members of a class or just a specific group.
A podcast is a video or audio file posted to a website that others can watch or listen to. They are different from regular audio/video files because you are able to “subscribe” to them. If subscribed, new posts are automatically downloaded.
