Understanding LMS Functions.
In this LMS functions article, we will learn about syllabus, library, Grading, Plugins, Enrollment, student view.
Syllabus LMS Functions.
As you start to explore various LMSs system for your class or institutions. One thing I recommend that is lying your current method of instruction with the features of LMS in this lesson how to map the paper syllabus with the LMS and discover the long the way. Few reasons the LMSs can help on your course.
There are objectives that students have to need.
There is a module built-in and inside the module, you can see resources highlighted for students such as links to videos, quizzes, and assignments.
Some LMSs systems such as desire2learn and canvas allow you to quickly to create modules and assignments.
I recommended you keep your paper syllabus with you. As going to feature LMS it can allow you to figure out. What’s can map over here and what’s not.
One thing you must notice. if you do not have a particular page. Any place you put the grading scale.
For students access the grading scale. Either they go to the grade book and take a look to current grades still want to show point possible the course Or student download the course.
Some Learning management system such as Canvas allows to you show the grading scale to front. Whether or not important for you and course it is up to you and may help to determine appropriate for you and for your students.
Library in LMS Functions.
In addition to understanding how the paper syllabus map over the LMS how display course contents to the students it is also important to keep in mind that we can create resources for the students.
One of the powerful features build in a lot of LMSs is the ability to create a library of documents one of the benefits of this often you have only created the library once and for each additional course to teach inside the LMS you can make various documents available to those students.
Grading LMS Functions.
Grading work can be a tedious process and many LMSs have developed ways to make the smoother to process for instructors building grading report also like to view the report how learners do for a particular course.
As I mentioned earlier a lot of LMSs either SCORM or TinCAN API gives us the ability to integrate with a lot of web-based services. It offers you plugin or apps.
Once you have selected LMS, and created courses and edit the content of those courses the final step is going to head and roll over the learner’s course itself.
Now there are three main ways learner role over in LMS.
- FIRST, administer will rollover of students.
- Have the instructor will rollover over the student.
- Third: though process which is called self-enrolment.
When designing a course inside the LMS. It is important to keep in mind how students are going to watch the course.
Now some LMSs such as Edmodo the layout of the LMS is very similar to what students can see.
The only difference will change the sidebar in navigation.
For example, students have the ability you lock and unlock the group they have access such as the class planner as well as the library.
