Creating an Assignment in WebAssign

This feels like “WebAssign Week” here at the the technology blog, but I’m getting all my courses set up and it seems like a good way to pass along the information about the technology to anyone who might need it. Also, I’m here in San Diego doing WebAssign demos this weekend, so it’s on my mind. Here’s another video for instructors – how to create a new assignment. I can create an assignment in about 3 minutes, but the video runs a little longer so that I can explain the various features.

Propogating Assignments in WebAssign

The second video in the series. If you’ve already been using WebAssign, and now you’re building courses for a new semester, you may want to propogate all those assignments into the new course for this semester. Alternatively, you may have created a Master Course with all the assignments and have your TA’s or instructors propogate assignments from the Master Course into their individual courses. This is a 7-minute video.

Creating a New Course in WebAssign

This week I’m prepping all of my online courses for the start of the semester next week. I’m recording many of the procedures as I go to help you if you’re new to using WebAssign as your online homework platform, or it’s something you’re considering. Here’s the first in the series, a short 4-minute video on creating a new course in WebAssign.

WebAssign Graphing Tool (beta)

WebAssign is working on a new graphing tool where students could draw their graph and it would be automatically graded. This is available on their website on the “Coming Soon” page. There is also a version of the Pencil Pad (a drawing tool) on this page. Although neither of these is available to use inside WebAssign right now, your students could use them right now for drawing graphs and diagrams if they just use the PrtScn button to create an image and save the image in some document. OR…they could use Jing to capture the image and then just send you the URL or use the URL on a message board.

Merry Christmas (a little early)… check out Jing!

Wow! I’m speechless! My hands are quiet on the keyboard… where to begin here? The Jing Project is a piece of software developed by TechSmith (makers of SnagIt and Camtasia). Right now it’s free… that’s right, FREE. It works on PCs AND Macs. It allows the user to capture an image or video of the screen (your choice of how big, where on the screen, or which windows). Jing loads the material to the Internet and then assigns it a URL (pasting it in your clipboard). You can then use the URL in an email, IM, or blog to send the reader right to the image or video file on the web. Here’s an example of a math image and a math video that were recorded with Jing. It’s not as sophisticated as Camtasia or SnagIt, BUT… it’s free, it’s simple, and it doesn’t require you to have any server space of your own… so … drumroll please… students could use it! Merry Christmas! Of course, you can use it too… but do keep in mind that there’s no sound. Addendum: There is sound!!! Plug in your microphone and it will record that too! I can use it in message boards that are text based (like on WebAssign) to insert images and video files… or at least the links to images and video files that might help answer the...
