Teaching With Google+ Communities
Traditional Learning Management Systems do a good job of coordinating assignments and providing a grading framework, but they are not so successful at fostering an atmosphere of community and collaboration. The facilities of Google Apps do a much better job of this, especially when a Google+ Community sits in the center as the primary communication within the class.

Authoring Moodle quizzes more easily + Grading with Moodle Rubrics
Among the features of Moodle learning management systems (such as SNoodle at SNC) are automatically graded online systems. Once written and implemented, these quizzes provide assessment and feedback for students without demanding further time from the instructor. Actually writing these quizzes in the online web editor can be quite tedious, frustrating, and error-prone, however. I will discuss a new software package that makes creating, editing, and managing these quizzes much easier.


In this presentation, I will describe my use of Moodle rubrics in grading laboratory and research project assignments in an undergraduate health psychology course. In addition to demonstrating various features and potential applications of Moodle rubrics, I will discuss some "lessons learned" and "likes and dislikes" regarding my use this tool.

Putting Slave Narratives on the Map & Student Campus Mapping Projects Using ARCGIS Online
Digital mapping pushes students to analyze historical and literary sources for concrete information regarding time and place. Slave narratives can be read as both historical documents and as literature, and students who use these narratives to create digital maps use this technology to tell a story about the realities of chattel slavery in antebellum America.


A showcase of several SNC focused online mapping projects.
