Welcome Back!

We are now at week seven and I am sure several of you are ready to learn how to use eClass for assessments. This week's Tech Tip of the week presents an edited version of our first Y'all Come help session that we had on September 15th covering how to create quizzes in eClass. Since the hands on training session wound up being 45 minutes long this weeks video is longer than usual. Additionally, creating quizzes takes several steps, so after watching this video please find any one of our content developers and schedule a time for them to walk you through creating your first quiz.

What is a Flipped Classroom?

As technology begins to develop a place in education several new buzz words have come up. One of those buzz words that has come up a lot lately is flipped classroom. The picture to the left is a twitter post from Dacula High School highlighting one of their teachers filming her flipped classroom lesson.
