M&W Online Learning Environment Introduction and Navigation

Our Online Learning Environment is designed for students to engage in the content being taught, complete activities and assignments, and use tools to practice and perform inside and outside of the classroom. Students can access resources and complete a variety of assignment types using any type of electronic device with an internet connection.


Online Learning Environment TOOLS AND RESOURCES


*resources vary by program 

eBook activities from the student edition, workbooks and other ancillaries, can be assigned to students for completion inside or outside of class. eBook activities have a start and due date and a number of maximum attempts set by the teacher. Some activities are automatically graded and students receive automatic feedback.
Performance activities are also video responses, but those are shared only with the teacher. Teachers set the prompt for the activity, the amount of time students have to prepare and record their response, as well as how many attempts they get for each. Teachers may give written and/or video feedback to the students.
Custom activities can be added to the online learning environment to include materials created by the teacher, allow students to upload projects, or incorporate writing activities into lessons. Student responses can be simply an acknowledgement that they received the resource, a short writing in a text box, or the uploading of a file. All work stays in the Online Learning Environment.
eReader libraries are available with Mirrors and Windows. Some eReaders have audio features and interactive activities to give students immediate feedback. Others include printable activities and vocabulary lists. Students have the ability to highlight, annotate and bookmark pages.
Bundles are a group of different activities and resources assigned as a single assignment with a single grade and due date. Bundles can include eBook activities, Performance activities, and Custom activities.
