PART 2: Focusing in on MyMathLab...
Where are we at regarding MML? Taught with it before... Never used it before... Just getting into it... Let's try using a free, text-message-based web-poll...
Course Compass & MyMathLab MyMathLab
Why use MyMathLab? Asynchronous learning Instant feedback Multimedia learning aides More guided practice, less grading Ready-made assessment questions & assignments Ability to post other digital materials Easy to monitor individual progress
MyMathLab troubles? Syntax entry is sometimes arcane Complicated, unintuitive menu system Requires more online time for everyone Authentication concerns Tendency to micro-manage Students with no internet access at home
MyMathLab tips, tricks, and strategies? In JetNet repository, there's a forum to which you can post ideas Use it as a central clearinghouse Set up with students & grade book Create small true/false quiz "assignments" as reminders Add external links to videos, documents, websites
So much more to learn... View the tutorial videos on Alana's YouTube channelAlana's YouTube channel Especially the "MML for Faculty" playlist "Enroll" in and check out the JetNet Math Dept. Repository What other materials would help you? Consider the handout for "best practices" ideas using MML What practices could you fold into your teaching? Brainstorm ideas for using MML (and other tech) Anyone interested in trying an SD card for screen capture?
