Keeping Track of Students
Keeping Track of Communication
- You can use the spreadsheet below to keep track of communication with your students.
- If you keep this file in dropbox or somewhere in the cloud, you can simply post the link to this document in TheSIS when documenting communication, rather than retyping it all.
- You can create a copy of this spreadsheet to use in future semesters.
- I like to create a notebook in OneNote or Evernote for each module in my course.
- Then, I create a page for each assignment. In the assignment page, I keep track of my feedback (and the HTML code for the feedback once I've used it in my course at least once), and some common comments I leave for them. HERE is an example of one of these pages for a discussion.
- This way, if you teach the course again, your feedback and comments are saved.
If I need to create feedback for an assignment about "cells" for example, I will google cells and look and see what I can find about that topic. I try to link to sites that explain the information in that assignment, include a picture that explains the topic, or embed a video that explains the topic.
