Students highly value consistency within and across the subjects they undertake. The structure of files and folders as well as the placement of menu elements and links all contribute to the overall usability of the online learning experience.
All learning resources should be developed with accessibility principles and inclusive design in mind. Creating more accessible documents in Word, PowerPoint, PDF and other common file formats will benefit not just students who identify with disabilities but the entire student population.
You can use folders to structure and organise your LearnJCU site to make it easy for students to find and navigate through your subject materials.
Editing and managing content
Content typically added to LearnJCU includes documents such as Word, PDF or PowerPoint slides; and links to websites you have produced or external sites.
The Adaptive Release function allows teaching staff to control availability of content using criteria to provide/deny access to subject resources such as lecture materials, quizzes and discussion board forums.
Reserve Online is JCU's central repository for digitised readings and past exam papers and includes publication and metadata information for these and for other digital media.
