Tools & Technologies
YSJU provides a number of applications which enable academics to create multimedia content, quizzes and other online activities to help fulfill a range of teaching, learning and assessment objectives. First, it is important to understand how you would like to represent your content, then choose the most appropriate tool to help you create and present it. Then you can use one of many tools to create quizzes and self-assessments in order to check understanding. Finally, design interesting and engaging activities to ensure students can apply and demonstrate their learning. Remember that the use of technology to enhance learning, teaching and assessment should be considered and appropriate, and should never exclude any learner from engaging in the process.
