Traditionally, the process of creating university and high school courses has been extremely time consuming — often consuming dozens and dozens of hours. Moreover, the results often fail to truly motivate, stimulate, and engage students.
In this webinar, learn about Illume, the world’s largest database of learning materials, a free resource to help you build great courses. Illume streamlines the course creation process, dramatically shortening the preparation time for instructors and yielding stimulating and engaging learning materials for students.
Illume does this by offering the world’s largest database of syllabi; reading lists; course notes; text and trade books; newspaper, magazine and journal articles; videos; case studies; simulations; problem sets; lecture presentations; and other instructor and student materials. It has just been introduced and it is completely free for all to use. While it is designed for university instructors, high school teachers looking to assign learning materials beyond textbooks will also find it very useful.
This webinar showed how to quickly and easily navigate Illume’s enormous database and use its many tools to create the best possible courses to truly motivate, engage and stimulate your students. This webinar will be of of most interest to college and university instructors, and also to high school teachers creating high level courses.
Dr. Diane Quandt has been an Associate Professor of Education at the College of New Rochelle for more than 20 years. She holds a B.A from Vassar College, an M.S. from Syracuse University in Special Education, an M.Ed and Ed.D. from Teachers College of Columbia University in Reading and Learning Disabilities, and Special Education.
Illume makes it easy for instructors to (i) view the syllabi, reading lists, course notes, and presentations of their colleagues around the world for ideas, and (ii) find and evaluate learning materials to assign to their students from the most comprehensive list of materials available anywhere. Moreover, Illume allows instructors to save material for further review by “Marking It For Review.” Instructors can later go back to see a complete list of learning materials with links to the original source for scheduling.
