If you’re not using JupiterEd yet, why not? As an educator time management is crucial if you want to have any time for your friends and family!
Those who’ve been following my blog already know that I’m a HUGE fan of JupiterEd and extol its virtues and amazing features that I use on a regular basis. And no, they’re not paying me for the glowing reviews of their product. For the past few weeks I’ve provided tips and tricks that will help get you started on it today. Let’s take a quick look at these tutorials and come up with a plan of attack.
First, examine the different features offered through JupiterEd. It’s a very robust Learning Management System (LMS) that, after spending a little bit of time poking around, you will find is actually very powerful.
After reading about all of the wonderful communication and grading tools, you’ll want to explore having students submit assignments directly into JupiterEd. While I hope I was able to communicate my enthusiasm for Juno Docs, I think that you really need to see it in action to fully appreciate it.
If you have your students creating multimedia presentations and other dynamic content on a tablet or computer, you’ll need a way for them to submit that work. JupiterEd has that covered! I describe multiple ways to do this and provide a consistent workflow to make it easier for your students.
Where to start
If this all seems a bit much, I would suggest taking a look around The Basics of JupiterEd and setting up all of the categories, weights, assignments, etc. Keep it simple at first, and then gradually try out other features such as behavior logs and parent communication. In time, you’ll want to try having students submit assignments through Juno Docs to save your sanity when grading.
