How does NeuroK work?
There are three roles a user can carry out with an only email address .
You can be Account Administrator. It is the manager of the account, produces the courses and invites teachers and students to participate.
A Teacher, who gets to the course through an invitation. It is the contents supplier, producer of Units and Activities , it does the tracking and counselling of the student.
And at last, but no least, the Student, who is invited by the Administrator. It participates in the course, providing contents discussing about the Units and Activities in their timelines.
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.
To unsubscribe from a course as a teacher or as a student, you have to contact the administrator of the account and request the withdrawal.
If you are an Administrator and want to request the cancellation of your account, you can request from your administrator page, in “Status” clicking Cancel. In brief the support team will contact you for account cancellation.
As a student of a course, when you decide who to follow, you are creating your own learning network, a community of people, who for your content or comments seem interesting. With this option you can make a comment filter, because you will see the conversations and debates of the social filter that you have chosen.
The home page shows the contents of the people you follow, so you are already doing a content cure. Also at any time you can choose to see all the comments of all.
You are deciding which people are the ones who bring you the most in the course, and what contents are the ones you prefer to read.
If you want to know what is happening, you can always click on “All” and it will show you everything that has been said by all users of the course.
Tip: Decide who you follow and who you do not in the course, and create your own learning network.
When you went to class, you knew who to ask for notes and who to ask for help or advice. NeuroK is the same, filter your contacts and decide who you want to follow.
From the menu on the left, the PARTICIPANTS tab or by clicking next to the name “Do not follow” you can change the option.
Become an influencer of your course. It contributes quality content, makes assessments with arguments, helps your colleagues, promotes participation, asks, plays, learns.
NeuroK notifies users of all important actions that occur in each course.
These notifications are received via email, or are notified on the platform itself on the icon “bell”, or via Telegram.
You can configure these notifications from the top-right menu.
These are the actions you can decide to remove from your notifications.
Now we also integrate Telegram in NeuroK so that you receive on your smartphone everything that is happening in the courses that you are.
To receive these notifications from Telegram you must follow a few simple steps:
- Install the Telegram application on your smartphone
- Search NeuroK Bot and type: /start
- Then paste the code that is generated automatically (appears in NeuroK): /token (Code numbers and letters)
- You are already inside NeuroK bot.
Remember that if you do not want to receive notifications of NeuroK in your smartphone you can leave the Bot or modify it in Manage Notifications in your profile.
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.
If you have not been able to enter the course for a while and you want to see what happened the day you last entered, you can use the “Travel back in time” button.
Enter the date you want to return to, and navigate through the course as it was that day. Then you can go forward in days until the current date and you will be able to see the progress of the Units, the debates, new contents, …
NOTE: During this trip, you can not participate in the debates. You should exit the trip to the past and return to the current date to be able to make a comment.
