  • Edit Course Schedule with smaller Exams option
  • Put Assignment points and percentages – with Quizzes or with smaller Exams
  • Feedback policy
  • Interaction policy
  • Course Map with CLO, MLO, assessments, materials, and activities
  1. Decide if everything in the For Instructors Module is still needed!
  2. Add page for getting MyOpenMath course and editing

I will take care of the syllabus

We will look at number 2 and 3 in the meeting next week

We took a look at the For Instructors Module in our Tuesday meeting, and decided to take the stance of “it’s better to have more that they can delete than too little.” I don’t think anything needs to be taken out.

I also added a page for the MyOpenMath in Moodle, but there is nothing in there.

@jeusea You said one to-do item was to Edit Course Schedule with smaller Exams option. I added some smaller exam options to the course schedule on the syllabus. I added one exam to cover chapters 1 and 2, and another to cover chapters 5 and 6. I left chapters 3 and 4 to be covered on the midterm exam and chapters 7 and 8 to be covered on the final exam. Is this what you wanted? I also changed the assessment percentages to reflect the smaller exams. I made tests/exams worth 20% and put discussions with homework. I saved the updates, but I did not upload it to Moodle without you verifying that’s what you were talking about before I do anything else to the syllabus.

@jeusea I said all of that and then I saw that you said you would take care of the syllabus. I still don’t udnerstand how this platform works.
