NeuroK does not intervene in the teacher selection processes of a course.
We can help you with the practical issues of the platform and solve technical doubts or failures.
The content and motivation of the course is completely up to the teacher.
The Administrator of an account (teacher or not) is the one who invites the teacher to participate in a course.
The selection, hiring and payment of the teacher is by the Account Administrator. NeuroK does not intervene in any of these processes.
To invite a participant to a course, you just need your email. But the invitation and user management is done by the administrator.
As a teacher in the tab Manage Course > Follow-up of students, you have the student list of your course, with statistical data that can help you manage your course and know which students participate more actively and in which areas.
You can also download the student activity information in an excel sheet.
As a teacher, it is you (and all other teachers) who is in charge of the creation and publication of Learning Units and to Create the Activities that are linked to the learning, as well as to upload content to the Library and track students.
The teacher is the dynamizer of the debate, you do not have to contribute all of the content, you only have to contribute your criteria. The teacher must let the students ask themselves questions and guide them in their learning.
Searching the internet and finding documentation on a subject is within everyone’s reach, but not all of us will find the right content. That is where the course teacher can contribute his or her knowledge and experience to help with the learning process.
From the menu on the left, the “Course Management” tab is where you can create the Learning Unit.
If the Unit is linked to a video you must upload it first to the Library.
The Unit must be given a title and description. You must then relate it to the content uploaded in the Library and also relate it to a Learning Unit.
You can publish it there and then, or leave it for a later scheduled date of publication.
Yes. As a teacher, you can participate in any of the Learning Activities you have created.
You can actively contribute to the course and be evaluated by the rest of the participants.
The Library compiles all the contents that are important for the course.
Whether it’s created by the teacher and uploaded to a Learning Unit or recommended content uploaded by a student.
Once the Learning Unit has been created, you can edit and modify it at any time, even when it is already published.
To post a Learning Unit, you just need to activate the “speaker” icon.
Once the Learning Activity is created, you can edit and modify it at any time, even when it is already published.
To post a Learning Activity, you just need to activate the “speaker” icon.
Enter the Learning Activity and select “Gradients to Evaluate”.
You will see an anonymous list of Activities delivered, choose one or all and you can correct it.
Then go to the “Evaluated” tab.
Peer evaluation is an evaluation among course members.
In “Pending Evaluation” will see a list of Activities given by other partners and will have to evaluate one or several as marked by the teacher in the description of the Activity.
As a teacher, first create the Learning Activity, its description, delivery dates and evaluation dates, evaluation criteria, and check the Type of delivery: group option.
The platform automatically generates groups and their members.
Then edit the Activity, you can change all the options you need, such as renaming groups or moving their members.
The teacher can edit the name of a group and who makes it.
Course Management>> Learning Activities >> click on the Group icon.
Now you can edit the characteristics of the groups.
Yes, you can move members from group to group.
The first time you create the Group Activity, NeuroK creates groups randomly. Then you can change them and rename them if you need them.
Just click and drag the group name to group.
In Group Activities, any member who submits an Activity will give up the activity on behalf of the whole group.
That delivery will be evaluated and the scores will be for all members equally.
The points are not dealt.
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.
The statistics and follow-up of students is a tool to help the teacher, both to know the evolution of the course, and to help the students more off-hook to resume the pace of the course.
The statistics that NeuroK shows will help you not only to know in which more each participant participates: how much participates in points, what contents publishes, the delivery of activities and what evaluation has received. Who follows in the course and who follows him.
With all this data you can know the student’s use in a course. He does not participate, but his activities are very well evaluated.
You will also be able to see if a student has become an “influencer” of a course, by the companions that follow.
As a teacher you can export the data of the course, in case you want to complete it with data of attendance or other deliveries.
At NeuroK, every participation counts. And to motivate and play within a course students have different points for each action they do within a Learning Unit or for the delivery of a Learning Activity.
For example, it is not the same to comment, that it can be a message of encouragement or a question, to evaluate, that entails an argumentation of your answer. You can participate by uploading content, either video, reference, document or create your own article.
The comments of your classmates can receive “like” or be recommended by the teacher, and everything is reflected in your statistics. Check your progress in the course and your participation, and check how the other classmates are going.
In addition, for teachers, it serves as a tracking tool for students, to motivate them, help them and guide them in the course.
Thus the participation score in NeuroK is distributed:
- Deliver a Learning Activity: 20 points.
- Post new content: 20 points.
- Evaluate the delivery of another partner: 15 points.
- Evaluate and argue a content: 15 points.
- The teacher recommends the content of a user: 10 points.
- One partner marks the content of another as a favorite: 1 points.
- Comment a content: 2 point.
- A user values and argues my content: between -2 and 2 points according to the evaluation.
A tag cloud (word cloud, or weighted list in visual design) is a visual representation of text data, typically used to depict keyword metadata (tags)on websites, or to visualize free form text. (Wikipedia).
At NeuroK we have created Tag Cloud as a tool for analyzing and measuring the participation and debates that are generated in a course.
It is a tool that helps the management of the course by a teacher. Only visible and editable by course teachers. Know if the topic is being diverted, or if the users are speaking properly about the proposed topics, which are taking advantage of the course and sharing knowledge of quality.
In NeuroK the teacher will be able to manage the word cloud of your courses. Use analytical data to help you streamline your course in the ideal direction.
From managing a course, the teacher can see the word cloud that is automatically generated.
You can edit the word cloud and see by:
- Complete course or by Learning Units.
- All users or only teacher or only students or per student.
- For all relevant words, or the top 10 or 25.
With these data, the teacher of a course can quickly see the debate that is in its course, whether the users are focused on the subject, or not.
If they are sharing collaborative knowledge and are well focused, it will mean that they are making optimal use of the course, and that therefore the teacher is providing the necessary criteria. Or if the different debates are being diverted from the subject of the course, the teacher can make the necessary decision to re-focus the subject. Or you may find that the users themselves are actually generating new questions and debates that should be considered.
In addition to analyzing the most used words, you can create your own Tag Cloud, with the words that you think should be mentioned more in your course.
When creating the generic cloud comparison and your own, you can see the deviation or the approximation that there are to the themes that you propose.
NeuroK gives you the list of the most used words in the course, so you can select the one you want, or you can add new words to create your own analytic.
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.
