E-Learning Introduced to Classrooms by SCDSB

August 29, 2005 - Jody Cameron, Project Manager of, recently introduced Sudbury Catholic District School Board teachers to an electronic learning mangement tool. E-Learning using Microsoft Class S provides teachers with learning-management features to help manage curriculum on-line, assess students' achievements againstt curriculum standards, and generate reports on the results.

"What is unique about Class S is its ability to create assignments that are aligned with the school's curriculum standards," stated Cameron. "Teachers can use this new electronic technology to grade assignments and evaluate a student's work, even if the work is submitted on paper or as an oral presentation. Many types of questions, such as multiple choice or fill in the blank, can be automatically graded (autograded) in Class S," concluded Cameron.

After the assignment has been graded, teachers can use the reporting feature to get a high-level view of the whole class or specific students within the class. These reports can also help identify individual student needs. Microsoft Class S will be introduced to Marymount Academy and Pius XII Catholic School this fall.
