Click here to sign up for a quick Virtual Instructor Plato Course Training!

This is an introductory virtual training that can be done at your own pace, on your own time, from anywhere.

In this 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
    • Create a discussion forum to enhance the understanding of course topics
    • 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 online quizzes to test student knowledge
    • Use ScreenPal or Zoom for screen capture, and to create short tutorials
    • Use Audacity to create podcasts (sound files) in your course
    • Use Zoom for virtual office hours, and virtual meetings
