Testers wanted for new K-State Online wiki and blog tool
A new wiki and blog tool is available in K-State Online and we are looking for instructors to try it out and provide feedback.
Wikis and blogs can be a very useful addition to your courses. They can be used for group collaboration, journaling, responsive assignments and more.
This new tool, called Campus Pack, is integrated into your K-State Online course and is semester based. Campus Pack wikis and blogs can be private, accessible by the whole class, or they can be publicly viewable.
A unique feature to Campus Pack allows you to quickly assess your student's participation with information such as pages edited, comments initiated, and the last date and time your students viewed the wiki or blog.
If you would like to participate in the Campus Pack pilot, please contact Amanda Tross at the office of mediated education. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-4370.
