Unit Web Page
The web page for this unit is at Macquarie University's iLearn site accessed here.
The iLearn site for CBMS337/837 will be used to deliver lecture and laboratory notes and will feature a discussion forum, digital lecture recordings and other learning resources. To view the lecture notes and other PDF files on the website, you will require a PDF viewer. Free PDF viewers can be found online (e.g. Adobe Reader).
Active Learning Platform
Some lectures will feature interactive lecture presentations using a technology called the Echo360 Active Learning Platform. This is a new system, different from Lecture Tools which you may be more familiar with. Additionally, this technology is different from the Echo360 Lecture Recordings you may be more familiar with.
To participate in the Active Learning Platform the student will need to bring their laptop, tablet, or smart phone to class, or participate while live-streaming the class (if this service is available).
Guides and videos on how to use the Active Learning Platform can be found here.
