Webinar: Using Activity Feed in D2L to Increase Student Engagement |
Facilitator: Julie Lockett
Activity Feed is a new widget that provides instructors with an opportunity to engage students. It borrows features from familiar social media platforms and instructors can share class announcements, files, and links to existing activities like quizzes. What makes this tool powerful is that unlike News, which is one-way communication, Activity Feed allows for two way communication. Instructors have the ability to turn on/off commenting for any posting. For example, if you post a link to a news article relevant to your course, you can turn on commenting and allow your students to discuss the article directly from the homepage. Important posts, like links to Submissions, Quizzes or announcements about classroom changes can be pinned to the top of the page so they don’t get lost. In this webinar, the Activity Feed widget will be demonstrated and you can find out how to add the widget to your course homepage.
