Department: Physics and Astronomy

School: Trent University(Canada)

Product: LaunchPad for Comins and Kaufmann Discovering the Universe

How do you use LaunchPad? I use LaunchPad to assign weekly quizzes and weekly assignments. My quizzes use randomized pooled selection from the testbank. My assignments include LearningCurve, tutorials, ImageMap and interactive exercises.

Advice on Using Technology with Students:  With careful selection and use of quiz questions and other content, I have found that I am able to use LaunchPad to assign regular homework to students which provides regular and useful feedback to students on their performance, while also providing me with a reliable assessment of their understanding of the material.
