Whether you are new to Carleton or a seasoned instructor looking to change up your course, cuLearn is a great tool for extending your classroom. With cuLearn you can post lecture slides, create discussion groups, upload extra readings or videos, accept online assignment submissions, create self-marking quizzes, send announcements to students, and share student grades. And these are just some of the many possible functions of this powerful tool.

Come to our introductory session for a hands-on tour of Carleton’s learning management system. By the end of this session, you will know how to:

  • Navigate cuLearn
  • Post a welcome announcement for your students
  • Upload a personal profile and contact information
  • Add course resources, such as a course outline and external URLs
  • Setup and modify your course layout and design
  • Add learning activities, such as lessons, discussions and quizzes
  • Add a TA or co-teacher
  • Make your course visible to students
  • Set up your gradebook and grade columns (depending on available time)

This session is intended for participants with no or beginner-level knowledge of cuLearn. Please bring your own laptop to this workshop. We will have limited Mac and PC laptops available for use.
