Instructors: Welcome to Hayden-McNeil Lab Simulations! Helpful information to get you started in your course is provided below.
Provide one of the following resources to students so they can register.
- Student registration instructions will walk students through creating an account, as well as registering for a course.
- To post directly in your LMS, download either the syllabus insert or slides for our First Day of Class instructions and make edits so they are specific to your course.
Each lab includes an e-manual and two assignments as options. The Introduction to Lab Simulations provide an overview to navigate within the simulation.
- The “SA”, or short answer assignment, must be manually graded while the “MC”, or multiple choice, assignment is auto-graded - assign one, both, or neither.
- Lab simulations are linked from the procedure page of the e-manual and open in a new window. Please note that the Evolution and Ecology labs do not include a simulation but cover the topics through images, videos, and/or data analysis.
Viewing, Hiding, and Showing:
Each lab has a section block - all of the labs are initially hidden from student view except Introduction to Lab Simulations. You can identify the hidden items because they appear lighter.
- Instructors can Hide or Show lab section blocks and individual items.
- If students indicate they cannot access a lab even after unhiding the section block, you may need to unhide individual items.
- As an instructor you can View the Course or an Assignment as a Student to confirm everything appears as it should.
Editing and Assigning:
Assign Open / Close Dates and Times or easily make changes to the content in your course.
If you manage multiple sections of students, you may want to create sections.
- Create Sections to provide different open/close dates for assignments.
- Once sections are set up, assign unique open / close dates (and times) for each assignment and section either using Group Overrides or the Bulk Assignment Updater.
Adding TAs or Adjuncts:
Add Teaching Assistants (TAs), Graders, or Adjunct Faculty so they can grade assignments and access the gradebook, but not make edits to the e-manual or assignments.
- They must first follow the account creation process. They do not need to register for a course, but they must create and verify their account.
