Your first visit — the Tour
On your first visit a tour will automatically describe the different elements of the Table of Contents page, and how they are used. You can move forward through the tour by clicking the Next button, end it immediately with the End button, and replay it later by clicking the "play" icon in the upper-right corner of the Table of Contents page.
Course content — units, modules, assessments, and their schedules
The Table of Contents page includes a list of the course's units. Click the green arrow to expose the nested modules, as well as the scored assessments they contain.
Practice activities — Learn By Doing and Did I Get This?
On most Acrobatiq course pages, students will find practice activities with different purposes.
- Learn By Doing. The LBD exercise is intended to extend the instruction on the concept the student just encountered, and enable a deeper learning through interactivity and immediate, expert feedback. When a student submits an incorrect answer, feedback that's pertinent to the answer is displayed. Likewise, when an answer is correct the feedback offers a little more information to help reinforce the learning. LBD exercises typically offer hints to help students who are stuck.
- Did I Get This?. The DIGT exercise usually follows all instruction and practice on a concept, and serves as a self-check for the student. These exercises usually do not include hints, and help the student determine if he or she is ready to proceed or if more practice and review are needed.
Scored assessments — access and schedules
To access the assessment click its name or the orange icon with the right-pointing arrow. If your instructor applies a schedule, you will see it in the same line as the assessment title.
Before You Continue — an exercise in metacognition
Each module Wrap-Up page includes a Before You Continue exercise. This is a metacognitive tool to help students gauge their own understanding of core concepts in the unit. Taking stock of what you do and don't know allows you to focus your review efforts on just the concepts that give you the most trouble, saving you time.
BYC exercises also give students the opportunity to communicate with the instructor directly, by listing the areas where they feel they need more help in open-ended, text-based responses.
Students are advised to take a few moments to thoughtfully complete all Before You Continue exercises. The more actively students assess their own state of understanding, and communicate it with the instructor, the better prepared both students and instructors will be to address student needs.
The Course Menu
The menu is accessed by clicking the silhouette icon in the upper right, between the tour and the nav bar icons. If you upload a profile picture it will replace the generic bust.
