T4LT - Socrative




Socrative (Pronounced soh-CRA-tive - stay tuned to the end to see why this is important), is a web-based question response system for any class and your polling pleasure. The applications for education range from a quick comprehension check to friendly in-class competitions where correct responses can win the race. We found it to be an elegantly designed system that will take no time to learn and has the features instructors are looking for.

T4LT - Group Tools



Digital tools for group collaboration are plentiful. Which tool is best will vary on the needs of the group work and preferences of those involved. Share resources and files, collaboratively create documents and presentations, or manage entire projects from start to finish.

T4LT - Rubrics



Students want meaningful feedback and need it to learn. Rubrics are one way to provide expectations and/or feedback to students and can help you make your scoring consistent as you look at the 20th essay on the role Gettysburg played in the Civil War. The eLearning system powered by Angel has its own Rubric Manager. For those who need more inspiration or off-site access, you might try Rubistar or iRubric at the links to follow.
