Learn how to create detailed, personalized lecture notes that enhance the student learning experience in both the traditional and non-traditional classroom setting utilizing the many great features of SoftChalk.
When Raritan Valley Community College switched to WebStudy Learning LMS for hosting and delivery of all of their courses, Derek Weber used the opportunity to blend content created in SoftChalk into his online course. WebStudy uses a unique approach called a Timeline (interactive syllabus) to deliver the material in a way that makes sense for the students to complete their work. Derek created the idea of customized e-Notes; whereby he used SoftChalk to create e-Notes that include a detailed chapter summary with embedded images, hyperlinks and related videos/animations hosted by sites like YouTube. These eNotes are delivered seamlessly to the students using this approach. The benefits for faculty include easy to create media-rich content – that combines the picture viewing capabilities of PowerPoint Presenter, the text constructing capabilities of Microsoft Word, and the ease of storing quality media-rich content in a Learning Management System that allows easy retrieval and re-use semester after semester.
