Distance Learning and Instruction

Is your class transitioning to a distance learning environment? We know that new learning environments come with a lot of big questions, firsts, challenges and opportunities. In this webinar, we will offer guidance for getting your class, students and parents acclimated to a remote classroom, share tips and tools, and give you best practices for how to use ASSISTments to help your kids succeed with distance learning.

Drop In Help Session: Distance Learning and the ASSISTments Community
April 6, 2020 2:00 PM

Drop in to our Help Session with a question or problem of practice around using ASSISTments to support distance learning. ASSISTments staff will be on hand to respond to questions, and we'll create space to connect with and hear from other users as well. Recommended as follow-up for those who have attended one of our Distance Learning Webinars, but all are welcome!

ASSISTments allows teachers to write their own content to share with students. Our “builder” gives you the ability to author content and tailor practice problems to the needs of your classes. Transform worksheets, exit tickets, HW assignments, or warm-ups into digital assignments and give students feedback as they complete their work. You'll receive data reports so you can keep track of student outcomes.
