Classroom Management

Our classroom management system is supported by Aimmi and is currently being used for primary communications and management (e.g., lectures, homework, online quizzes, forums,.). Educational functionality currently supported includes:

  1. "Cloud" file sharing area. Faculty controlled, but will be automatically filled by the email system if desired (see below). This includes four separate areas for each class:
    1. "faculty" – upload/download area visible to and for faculty only. E.g., used to keep lecture material for class.
    2. "lectures" – contains the latest lecture material and is download only for the students
    3. "homework" – contains the latest homework assignments and is download only for the students.
    4. other – contains material such as the Syllabus, special notes, etc. and is download only for the students.
    5. "student_share" – can be uploaded and downloaded to by students.

    3. View Grades allowing the student to see their current grade plus missing assignments.
    4. Online Quizzes giving immediate feedback. Can be used during a lecture to ascertain understanding.
    5. Online/Hybrid Classes supporting online flow (e.g., YouTube) with interspersed quizzes, PowerPoint's, etc.
  3. Email system which can be used for sending out:
    1. Lectures, the Syllabus, etc.: Everything sent can be made to automatically post to Aimmi Share.
    2. Homework: Aimmi sends out the homework assignment and accepts a reply with the homework answers attached. Alternatively, the students can post homework online. When Aimmi receives homework, or, alternatively, when the homework is due, she can send out the answers. Aimmi can also automatically give a zero grade on late assignments if desired.

    5. Assignment setup: Automatically sets up an assignment in the assignment area mentioned below.
  4. Class Management Areas include:
    1. Assignments Area: Used for grading. Any assignment submitted can be brought up anywhere for review and grading. Each assignment has a point value. Assignments are part of a category (e.g., quiz, final, project, homework, .), each of which has a weight. These are used in combination for automatic grading if desired.
