Faculty who want to encourage asynchronous interaction (participants do not need to be connected at the same time), faculty will find forums are the easiest to add and are the most familiar to students:
- See How Forums Work (this link takes you to GCC’s installation of Moodle where you can see a quick video demonstration of forums… this is intended for those new to forums)
Hypothes.is is an interesting tool that allows faculty to add links to web pages or PDF files that can then be annotated by students. Students and faculty can see and reply to others’ annotations as well.
- The Hypothes.is annotation tool (this link takes you to GCC’s installation of Moodle– the video has updated closed captions)
- Add a link to annotate with Hypothes.is (this link takes you to GCC’s installation of Moodle)
- With access to G Suite (Google Drive), faculty can upload PDF files and add links to those files so Hypothes.is can be used to annotate them. Directions (including a closed captioned video) are on Linking to a PDF file in Google Drive (which is in Moodle)
