As a teacher, you have a duty to your students to keep your content current. You want to teach your students the things that are relevant in the world today and make sure that they understand the things that are going on. Whether it be political, educational, athletically, it does not matter. One way to do this is by staying up with the content yourself. Use relevant platforms like YouTube or Facebook to help show students current events in a modern way.
- Use the Embed Responsively website to help you embed content from YouTube, Google Maps, and Getty Images into your content.
- For help with viewing all of your calendars, use Canvas or Blackboard.
- Cloud services such as Dropbox are an excellent way to manage your course syllabus and other documents.
“Even a little bit of effort toward streamlining content that could be moved to multiple learning management systems (LMSs) can have a big payoff.”
