The instructor's version of the course is not the same as a student. This segment explains what students see.
Instructors and students have different views of this online program. Those who are taking this tutorial are seeing the "Student View"
This segment explains those differences.
The two windows below show the difference between the students MY CLASSES window and the instructors MY COURSES window.
After students "Log In" they will see the "My Classes" screen below.
Within the red circle Student Course Options Buttons are:
Instructors see the following screen after logging in
Instructor Course Option Buttons Are:
Once a student logs into their class, they will also have a different tab.
The image below is the student view of this tutorial.
When an instructor logs into a course they see the following tab view
Students have a CLASS HOME page. That is their landing platform for a class. (see the image below of a sample course)
Students can see who is in the class with them, they have access to their discussion forum, and they can see if there are any announcements from the instructor on the class home page.
When the instructor sends out a course announcement, that announcement will go to every student enrolled in the course. Student will also see announcements in their CLASS HOME tab . (see images below and about).
When you click each module of your Instructor Course, at the bottom you will see a MANAGE TEST (See image below) .
Students don't see a MANAGE TEST tab unless the instructor has initiated the TESTS in the course. (Testing is covered in later segments)
You don't see the MANAGE TEST tab in this tutorial because you're seeing the tutorial as a student. The image below is what I see as an instructor.
Below is an image of what students see in a course on managing puppies. The instructor has not required any tests but she did include a WEEKLY DISCUSSION FORUM for students to ask questions.
It is the instructors option to have a DISCUSSION FORUM for each module in the course. This makes review easier than having a forum for the entire course. Adding forums to courses is covered in later Module 2.
