It’s full steam ahead using coursekit as my class LMS for 2012 =). Right now there is one feature which stands out for me. COURSE DUPLICATE!
I opened up the platform and got the class rep to pass the required code to all the students thinking that they would respond quickly. It looks like the better way would be to get their email addresses and invite them to reduce the inertia.
By next week I should be posting up media and articles to elicit discussion and/or create posts that extend class discussions. This batch of students have proven to be more responsive in class than the previous batch and so hopefully this translates well onto the online platform as well.
