Assignment Grader
presented by Susan Sutton, Darren York and Nichole White

Have you ever been sitting somewhere wishing you had access to wi-fi so you could grade a few of your student’s assignments? With D2L version 10.3 and the new “Assignment Grader” app you can download your student’s assignments on your iPad (with wi-fi connection), travel to a “no wi-fi” zone, grade those assignments (with your iPad and new Jot Pro stylus), then sync with D2L when you return to an area that has wi-fi.

Interested in learning how to accomplish this then come to our spring in-service and learn all about Assignment Grader. Bring your iPad and new Jot Pro stylus to this hands on session.
