Elementary Classes navigating multiple courses.

Jump to solution

Hello!  Currently, I have 5 courses listed for my 1 elementary level class.  Our district set it up this way so that grades would mesh easily with Synergy but it's more detailed than the students understand.  My students need it to be as simple as possible so having them go back to the dashboard to decide for themselves which subject something is can be confusing.  Especially when they are differentiating between Reading & Writing.   I would like to be able to use buttons that take them directly from one course to another at the top of my page.   Is there a tool or way to put the link in so they can go from one course to another fluidly?  Thanks.

I copied the URL for each course's homepage the students are a student in and used the external links feature to link between courses.  Again, make it once and then copy and paste the completed table in the same very obvious location on each course's homepage.

First I created course card images for each content area using Google Drawing.  After setting the course card image for each subject area within each course‘s settings, I then created a simple table with those same course card images and hyperlinked the other courses to their respective courses.  Create the table at a single row with five columns.  Set the table for 100% width and each cell at 20%.  After making one, you can copy and paste the table into the other courses.  If they are enrolled in the course, then they will be able to hop between the subject areas seamlessly.

With elementary students, keep it simple but engaging visually.  PNG files are the best for the course cards.  The aspect ratio should be about the same as a standard business card.

I'm having the same question as above. 

I made the table but where do I get the link for the courses?  They are not listed in the external links when I go to add one.

 

Thanks,
