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.
