Discord: An Efficient Communication Tool for Pedagogical Purposes

Published May 8, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Simon Côté-Massicotte Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

When the lockdown began, what now seems like years ago, I, like so many other teachers, had to figure out a way to continue giving my course as seamlessly as possible. Since my literature courses were heavily reliant on student interactions and regular exchanges, my first focus was to find a flexible, efficient, and reliable communication tool. After seeing the success of the Discord server created by my colleagues in the Video Game Design program at Limoilou, I decided to experiment with the program and it proved to be exactly what I was looking for.

Keyboard shortcuts to speed up formative feedback

Published November 28, 2017  |  English (Second Language)

Netta Gorman Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Have you ever had a sore hand after writing almost identical comments on the copies of all your students, again and again? Did you know that when correcting digital documents, you can avoid this by setting up automatic substitution codes? In addition, by creating keyboard shortcuts, you can give students detailed feedback. I do it in Google Docs, but it's possible with other word processing tools!

Give Your Students the Ultimate IT Experience

Published August 23, 2009  |  English (Second Language)

Jean-François Roy Teacher, Cégep Garneau

Two infallible ways to fire up students' motivation are to have them create something and then to provide them with an audience to share their creation with. For me, the website software Joomla has turned out to be the best tool to reach that goal.

When today becomes tomorrow!

Published January 22, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

This week, at our editorial meeting, we had a shining example of the value of the APOP U R on-Line Conference. The meeting was held using the Via Interface. Having gone to the conference with the Via Interface, we all agreed that the technology was perfect for our meetings, particularly when it is so inexpensive. I heard that a one hour session may cost as low as five dollars per participant. What a pleasure to see the expressions and body language of the other people on the Animaweb team!

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
