Effective Practices

The Connect Learning Management System significantly expands the toolsets of teachers and learners. This function directly:

  • Contributes to ease of centralized online assessment which can create much needed time for student planning and reflection
  • Immerses students in effective and innovative use of the LMS encouraging participation and exploration of learning technologies

This function supports a number of Chickering and Gamson's Seven Principles, including:[1]

  • Good practice encourages interaction between students and faculty
  • Good practice gives prompt feedback
  • Good practice emphasizes time on task

We encourage both students and instructors to read more about the Seven Principles to see how they can inform your teaching and learning.

Date Adjustment option

Date Adjustment Options allow you to adjust the date of the course and tools.

There are three ways to adjust the content and tool dates:

Use Course Start Date

This option will automatically adjust the date of the content and tools based on the Course Start Date.

For example: Your Current Start Date is on March 10, and the assignment is due on March 11, which is due 1 day after the course start date. If you set the New Course Start Date to March 15, then the assignment will now be due on March 16, which is due 1 day after the new course start date.

After you enter your current and new start date, press Start.

Adjust by Number of dates

This option will automatically adjust the date of the content and tools based on number of dates.

For example: If you adjust the number of dates by 10 days, the assignments that was due on March 10 will be due on March 20.
