This webinar is geared toward faculty, staff and TAs who are brand new to Quercus and those who are looking to review the basics. In this session participants will learn about essential information to get started with building their Quercus course. We will provide participants with tips for effectively organizing and structuring course content using Modules and Pages in Quercus, as well as an overview of the layout and features included in a Quercus course, customizing course settings, communicating with students, uploading course files, and adding assignments.
We will discuss the following strategies and best practices:
• designing Home Pages that are engaging for students
• using Quercus Modules to chunk content into manageable segments or learning units
• structuring content that flows in a logical progression
