Using Rubrics

The need for clear communication with our online students extends into our assessment practices. One of the best ways to clearly communicate grading processes and expectations is through the use of rubrics. Although Sakai currently doesn’t offer a rubric tool, there are still ways to effectively use rubrics in Sakai. In this session, we will offer an overview of rubric basics as well as strategies for using rubrics in Sakai.

Ensuring Loyola Quality in an Online Course

As the number of online courses and programs continues to grow at Loyola University Chicago, the question of quality becomes an important concern. How do we ensure that our online courses truly represent a quality, Loyola course? What makes our online courses different from the University of Phoenix courses? This workshop guides faculty through Loyola’s quality rubric for online courses and discusses how the rubric helps outline the course components valued by the university. 

Available online: https://connect.luc.edu/onlineteaching/.

Presentation Tool Workshops

In unit 4 of the Online Teaching Course, we introduced you to multiple presentation tools and explained how each tool varied from one another based on functionality, interactivity, editing capabilities, and other factors that were described.

Now that you’ve had the chance to identify some tools that might be useful to you, these in depth workshops will give you a better idea of how each of the tools functions and how you can use the various features of the software to include interactive components and promote instructor presence. We’ll finish by showing you how to publish and upload the content to a sharing platform (Sakai, etc.), as well as giving you resources on how you can obtain software if it’s something that isn’t already available to you.
