School: University of Alabama

Product: Sapling Learning – Mass & Energy Balances (Chemical Engineering) Course

How do you use Sapling Learning?  As a replacement for traditional homework; as a means of automating tests & quizzes; as a way to gauge retained knowledge from prior courses

Advice on using technology with students: Know more than they do… or at least as much as they do!  It’s not always easy for professors to stay on top of emerging technologies and trends but students are really impressed (and seem to pay more attention) when professors use modern technologies in the classroom and to communicate with students.  All of my course announcements are made via Twitter, and it works exceptionally well with no complaints.
