Blended/Hybrid Learning - A course that is a mix between online and in-person instruction.
Discussion Boards - Discussion boards or forums, are places within iLearn that host conversations within groups in the class.
Virtual Library - Provides students with access to online materials such as e-books, databases, research materials, and other publications.
Proctored Exam - For an online exam that needs supervision, a proctored exam monitors students' webcams, audio, and desktop usage by the student during the exam.
Webinar - A seminar or workshop where the facilitator and participants are all viewing the same screen at the same time.
Active Learning - Active learning prompts users to read, discuss, and problem-solve as a way to synthesize course materials.
Assessment - Anything completed in a course that allows the course instructor to evaluate student understanding of course materials. Also allows the student to receive feedback on their understanding and comprehension of course materials. Can take the form of exams, quizzes, surveys, discussion, essays, final exams, and more and doesn't always have to count towards a student's grade in the course.
