Not Using PLATO?

Schedule a Plato Overview Training Session with Lisa.

In this “hands-on” session, you will learn the Plato basics:

  • Customize the Plato template to meet your needs while providing a familiar virtual environment for your students
  • Upload your syllabus and class handouts for students to view online
  • Create an assignment “drop box” for students to turn in papers and documents
  • Use the Plato virtual grade center
  • Add web links to course related or special topic web sites, YouTube videos, and more

See what other great tools there are to enhance your course site such as:

  • Create a discussion forum to enhance the understanding of course topics
  • Create online quizzes to test student knowledge
  • Use Screencast-O-Matic for screen capture, and to create short tutorials
  • Use Audacity to create podcasts in your course
  • Use a Blackboard Collaborate for virtual office hours, and virtual meetings
