TLEARN

TLEARN is Trinity's learning management solution (LMS). It is a version of Moodle and faculty can opt-in to use it for digitally managing their classrooms through online assignments, grading, assessment, file sharing, roster lists, and more.

  • Faculty can create assessment activities within TLEARN using the Assignment module, which allows faculty to collect work from students, review it, and provide feedback (including a grade).
  • The Quiz activity module allows the instructor to design and build quizzes consisting of a large variety of question types (e.g. multiple choice, true/false, and short answers).
  • The Gradebook module collects items that have been graded from the various parts of TLEARN that have been assessed and allows the instructor to view and change the grades, as well as sort them into categories and calculate totals in various ways.

 

Qualtrics

Qualtrics is an industry-leading web survey system that offers robust capabilities for building and distributing surveys. It includes powerful data analysis tools and can be used for classroom quizzes.

 

Google Forms

Google Forms can be used when quizzes for students are short and simple or when you need to quickly gather information or feedback from students in the form of a survey.

 

TriniTV

TriniTV can be used by faculty to upload videos that are part of a class assignment and let students watch them in class or from their own computers outside class time.

 

Trinity Sites

The Trinity University Strategic Communications & Marketing division now offers Trinity-branded websites that can be easily used by faculty for simple lab websites or classroom/personal blogs.

 

Presentations

Presentation tools can be used in class to share information and media like images, video, and audio clips to engage visual learners. Use software that is free or licensed by Trinity to create stunning visual presentations - Keynote (for Macs), PowerPoint, or Google Slides.
