eLEARN Resources by Instructional Design

The following series of videos were created by WSCC'S Instructional Design Department and will provide you with instruction on CONTENT, DISCUSSIONS, DROPBOX, QUIZZES, and GRADES within eLEARN.



This video is a short introduction to using eLEARN Content, which is where instructors keep course materials. 



This short video introduces Discussions, a place where faculty can create discussion prompts and students respond to the prompts and each other. This is one GREAT way to create a sense of community in an online classroom because students interact with the material, the instructors, and other students. 



This video is a short introduction to using Dropbox, which is where students submit files (Word, Power Point, Excel, PDF, etc) to faculty members for grading. This is a great way for faculty to access students.



This video is an overview of Gradebook which includes setting up, managing, and entering grades.  



This video provides an overview of Quizzes including creating, editing, and managing quizzes in eLEARN.
