Project study learning (or project-based learning, briefly referred to as PBL) is a new educational trend. This is a teaching method which is designed for students to help them get knowledge and skills by investigating and responding to complex questions or challenges in a certain period of time.
Choosing a profession is one of the most important decisions in everyone’s life. Parents and teachers used to say that making a firm decision on what to do in life should be done at school. But there are two reasons why this may be not very effective. Children never can know for sure what they would like to do even in a few years after graduating from universities. That’s why students are often disappointed at their choice.
In addition to self-taught learning, adaptive learning is also growing in popularity. It is a computer-based educational system. The key idea behind it is that it helps present materials according to student needs and achievements.
Since adaptive learning is a computer-based educational method, it requires some special software to be applied. Such software has many features, like tracking skills, instant feedback, personalized tips and an amazing interface, looking like a computer game!
What do you value the most in LMS apps when creating another assignment for students or grading their papers? One of the choice criteria is sure to be its “labor-saving” feature. This is what our team calls “striving for a positive user-experience at all costs.” And this is the main reason why a new Unicheck update has been released. It allows saving settings for all assignments in a course with just one click.
This way you avoid adjusting settings for each assignment individually. Isn’t it labor-saving?
As an educator, you have definitely come across recycled student papers not once. To bring self-plagiarism accusations against the cheaters may take much time, since you need to ensure that your proof is really irrefutable. Not all plagiarism checkers available for LMS use can tackle the issue. Though students can also become victims of an unjust plagiarism checker verdict when their final submissions are falsely considered as re-used ones just because students were allowed to pre-check their papers before sending them for grading.
Good news for all educators using Blackboard Learn™. The Unicheck plagiarism checker has recently become available for use within Blackboard Learn courses. So, if you are a fan of integrated tools within Blackboard Learn, it’s high time to register an account at unicheck.com and see it in action. It can be done either on one’s own or under the supervision of the Unicheck team.
Once the registration is completed, you’ll get access to the institution account at unicheck.com. To activate the LTI app in Blackboard Learn, your LMS administrator should obtain the API key and secret (which can be found in the API Settings section of your Unicheck account) and make initial setup. That’s all you need to get started.
The summer Olympic Games in Rio have just finished. Not everybody is their great fan, but we all definitely know what it is all about. It has really one of the greatest events held in the last four years with more than 200 countries participating in it.
Olympic games were created back in 1896. To pay tribute to the country they came from, the first modern Olympics were held in Greece. The initiators took the idea from the Ancient Greece times when Olympics were a national competition with only men participating in it.
Many people understand that getting higher education is very important for them. But not everybody can afford it or has a required qualification level and background. Regular colleges and universities don’t allow you to enter them, unless you finish school or have higher grades to be eligible for enrolment. What’s the way out?
