Then go to the “Evaluated” tab.
To be a student of a private course or payment, you have to contact the administrator or the teacher of the course.
To be a student in a public or free course request to participate from the web
Only the administrator can invite the students to enter a course.
NeuroK is a platform that focuses on the student.
The teacher and the contents are not the main thing.
As an online training platform, it provides students with easy-to-use tools that remind them of Social Networks, and makes it easier for them to create their own learning network.
Whoever invites a student to the course is the administrator of the account. And this is the one who will take charge of the student’s collections.
It is the teacher who publishes the Units and Activities, which helps the student not to lose the criterion in the debate, and the one that marks what contents are the relevant ones.
The student at NeuroK is in charge of asking the questions, collaborating with other colleagues, searching for answers, contributing content found on the internet and doing peer evaluations, contributing their assessment according to the criteria previously set by the teacher.
NeuroK is not responsible for the content or development of a course.
The Administrator of an account (who can be a teacher or not) is the one who invites the teacher to participate in a course.
The selection, hiring and payment to the teacher is by the Account Administrator, and NeuroK does not intervene in any of these processes.
Each Learning Unit has a timeline of discussion. In this timeline is where collaborative learning takes place, where videos, references, documents or opinions are uploaded. Remember that every content or comment you make can also be recommended by the teacher or recommended by your classmates.
NeuroK looks like a social network and works in some aspects like some of them: the latest published will see at the top of the home page or in each timeline. You can also decide who you follow or not in the course, this way you can create your own learning network, as you have the option to see the contributions of those who follow, that you are interested. But at any time you have the option to see “everything” published.
Start by participating with a new comment, new content or following the thread of a conversation.
In NeuroK you can upload different content: videos (from the platforms enabled: youtube or vimeo), documents (created by you or downloaded from the internet), references (you only have to paste the url) or create your own entry as if it were a post of a blog.
This content you have posted may be:
- Reviewed by some fellow. In that case the comment gets two points.
- Valued, the partner who values you will have to decide how many scrolls you are going to give. From 1 to 5 may be the valuation. This assessment gives that student points and you too. The points range from -2 to +2. Remember that you can also remove points.
- Recommended by a teacher, and therefore saved in the Library.
When a student or teacher uploads content, you can rate this content.
“Rate” means that you can give or subtract points to that contribution, but you will have to argue it.
You can score a star, two three, four or five. And the value of each star goes from less to more.
- One ball, you subtract 2 points from your partner.
- Two ball, subtract 1 point.
- Three balls, neither give nor take away points.
- Four balls, you give your partner 1 point.
- Five balls, give him 2 points.
You can comment on the timeline of any Learning Unit.
Commenting on content from another student or teacher adds 2 points.
But if you decide to argue a content, this gives you more points. In addition the person who receives your argument can receive or lose points according to your assessment. You have to score from 1 to 5 balls, and these balls from -2 to +2 points for the one who receives the comment.
Remember, every comment in the debates always adds.
Learning Activities are created by the course teacher. They have a deadline and another deadline for evaluation.
It is also the teacher who will decide if it is a peer evaluation, and if it is a group activity.
To participate in the activity you have to go to Learning Activities and select the activity that you have left to deliver. Within each Activity you have a Timeline of Doubts, shared by all, and “My Deliveries”, where you must make the delivery and follow the evaluation criteria.
If it is a peer evaluation, you will also see the Evaluated tabs (the activities you have evaluated) and Pending Evaluations (the activities you have not yet corrected).
And if the delivery is a group, with which a member of the group delivers, the activity is given by everyone.
This system of evaluation is made among equals, among those attending a course. You will have to evaluate other peers and other peers will evaluate you. This assessment is based on criteria that the teacher will give you and you must follow.
In Pending Evaluations comes a random and anonymous list of colleagues that you can evaluate. In addition, the teacher will decide how many peers, at least, you have to evaluate.
In the “Activity”, if it is a peer evaluation, you have the My deliveries tab.
You can see how your colleagues evaluated you.
And if the teacher decides, you can make more deliveries to improve.
You can have an anonymous list of “Pending Evaluation” deliveries from your peers.
You will have to correct the minimum that the teacher marks.
For example, you will have to correct a minimum of two jobs for your delivery to go to the list of “Pending Evaluation”.
The teacher can mark that an “Activity” has to work in a group, it will create the working groups.
Any delivery of an activity by any member supposes the delivery of the “Activity” on behalf of the whole group. The activity score will be the same for the whole group.
If you want to change the group name or change groups you have to contact the teacher.
The evaluation criteria of a “Learning Activity” are set by the teacher.
These criteria are those that students should follow when evaluating an activity.
The evaluation criteria have a value weighted by the teacher.
Start participating by making a new comment, adding new content or following the thread of a conversation.

Mention a participant individualñy or mention all in a conversation.
Use the @ and write the name: @name
With the mention you ensure that the person mentioned receives a notification. Or use @all to ensure everybody recieves a notification.
With each contribution you make on your course, either a content or a comment, you can use tags or hashtags to organize content by topic.
If you label a content, you can then search for other content tagged with the same hashtag which has been uploaded by other users. You only have to click on that hashtag and you will get related results.
The hashtags are listed in the description of each unit or each content. Just one click to find all the info you are looking for on a topic.
Remember to use the # symbol before each word, and without spaces in between. It’s really that easy to label content.
Students can find all the course material both in the Library and in the Recommended tab.
The contents uploaded by the teacher, or the contents that you have recommended from another user, are stored in the Library and they are grouped by type of content. The library is accessed from the menu on the left, within any course.
The contents recommended by the teacher or uploaded by another participant of the course are grouped in the recommended area. This area is specific to each Unit, serves as a summary of all the important content of the Unit. It is accessed from each Unit.
Order the timeline
Now you can sort the timeline view at the start of the timeline of each Learning Unit, by order of publication of an uploaded content or by the latest content to be commented or rated.
Any of these timelines can be displayed in two ways:
- Trend: Order the timeline with the recent activity. The latest published: Commented or rated.
- Most recent: Order the timeline with the last published content, whether or not it has had recently activity.
- I am a student and I share a content that is video A.
- The teacher has shared a reference B.
- A comments that Video.
How are the trend results displayed? The order is B and then A.
How are the + Recent results displayed? The order is A and then B.
