Lecturer Micheal Akuupa of the Anthropology Department, has created an interactive online environment within the iKamva (Sakai) platform. The online environment is set-up to:
– send announcements;
– provide a course outline; and
– upload course resources (such as core readings).
The lecturer has organised the course resources within the ‘document pool’. Hence, students are able to access:
– Exam scope;
– Reading material; and
Furthermore, Micheal has created interactive discussion forums (asynchronous communication and assessment eTool), which enables the students to engage in discussion topics at their own pace.
The CIECT team conducted a demonstration for the Anthropology students, regarding the interactive online environment; and the use of the anti-plagiarism system, Turnitin (Tii).
