Learning doesn’t have to be a chore. With Joule, you can conveniently collaborate and communicate with peers and teachers. Class participation does not have to mean raising your hand in class any longer. With advanced forums and blogs you can post comments and hold discussions with your classmates and teachers based on assigned topics or other topics that interest you. Responses can be anonymous or authored, depending on the nature of the discussion and style of conversation you and/or your teacher is trying to facilitate. In addition, Joule’s messaging capabilities encourage collaboration with your peers at any time, so group assignments aren’t confined to the classroom. You can contact each other over a secure and trusted Joule environment. You’ll also be able to view clear expectations on posts and assignments through the rubrics and advanced grading features within Joule. We also understand that not every student learns in the same way. That’s why your teachers can tailor your assignments and coursework based on your performance on certain assignments, to ensure you’re receiving the appropriate attention for your success.
