Modern educators should be more skillful than before. The world changes faster year by year. Such quick alterations force people to think in a different way. The most important is that people who work in other fields should keep up with times. Teachers are those who cherish a new generation and give them all skills and knowledge required for modern life. Therefore, teachers should obtain those skills and knowledge, otherwise their teaching methods are not effective.
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.
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.
Educator’s work is quite hard and nervous. On top of this, all educators should keep up with the times by being tech-savvy and monitor new efficient tools that can make classes more engaging and useful. This also allows them to stay progressive and effective in their work.
Today, every teacher or professor can create a group project or seminar in a few minutes without even leaving home. With a great number of online tools available, learning becomes better, faster and more student-centered. If needed, it’s possible to show students how to check their papers with an academic plagiarism checker or create a class website to share acquired knowledge and practical experience.
