Many teachers have made efforts to put
their courses on-line, and have had some success, but find some of the technical
details to be too overwhelming. Giving students ready access to class materials
and information in an organized fashion is of utmost importance in the
management of any class.
ActiveClassroom allows teachers to develop a web-based class
to suit their needs. Whether it is a distance-learning application or just a
traditional class wanting to harness the power of the Internet, ActiveClassroom
can help you to leave the chalkboard behind. If you would like to explore ActiveClassroom's features, you may use our SignUp Wizard to create a temporary 30-day trial account.
The truth is, ActiveClassroom allows teachers to do what
they do best: teach and develop class content. ActiveClassroom handles all of
your site's daily organization. ActiveClassroom's flexible management system
allows teachers to tailor each course's curriculum design - from assigned dates,
to due dates, to web-based classroom resources. Features include a daily class
agenda, a searchable outline, a course calendar, class resource links as well as
online lesson planning and a web document editor. Teachers even have the option
of stylizing the colors of their classroom web pages.
For returning users, we have recently implemented several
upgrades, which will enable ActiveClassroom to better serve you! To preview
these changes, visit our new tour. Many of your initial questions may be
answered on our Frequently Asked Questions fact sheet. If you still have any
unanswered questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the upgrades in the
Enterprise Edition of ActiveClassroom is the ability to easily write and administer web-based
quizzes. These quizzes can be comprised of true or false, multiple choice, short
answer or an acummulation of all three. The quizzes the teacher assigns are only
available the day that they are due and are a cne-time event for each individual
student. Teachers also have the choice of making any quiz timed. Finally, when
students finish a quiz, it is automatically graded and reported. The teacher can
later display a dynamically generated bar graph for each question that shows
what percentage of the quiz takers chose each selection. Knowing the results
gives the teacher the option of eliminating any question deemed necessary and
ActiveClassroom will instantly re-grade all of the quizzes accordingly.
Another feature is the ability to implement web-based
threaded discussion forums for students to converse on a studied topic. Every
time a student submits dialogue their name and the time is posted. At anytime,
the teacher alone has the capability to control what is displayed so that
the conversation stays on the topic.
