Cadmus assignments will be new to many of your students, so it can be helpful to introduce them to Cadmus at the beginning of an assignment.
It’s important students understand that their work needs to be completed in the Student Environment to get the most out of Cadmus. Emphasising these expectations from the beginning can be helpful in setting your class up for a successful semester with Cadmus.
We’ve found the following ideas effective in introducing Cadmus to students:
- Show your class how to access their Cadmus assignment in a lecture or tutorial. Jump into the student environment to show them what they can expect
- Introduce Cadmus through an announcement on your unit page and explain the expectations in using the tool
- Let students know where they can get support while completing their assignment (Cadmus Manual and the Student Guides)
The rest of your teaching team may be using Cadmus for the first time, too. Even if they aren’t using the Teacher Environment to set up an assignment, it’s helpful if they’re familiar with the Student Environment. This will ensure they’re prepared for any student questions that come their way.
