Posting your agenda and other class materials every day in the same easy to find place is an essential step in focusing students and minimizing distractions during transition times. Converge’s Agenda Page was designed with this in mind. Not only can you post your agenda, questions, and other items, you can link text or images directly to any resource or activity in Converge that students need to access on that day.
Creating a Post
To post to your agenda, navigate to your Agenda Page and then click the Create New Post button in the top right corner of the page.
A new window will open where you can add a title for your post.
By default, you will be directed a standard post window, which works best for posting your agenda every day. Please note that you can also choose to post a question, a link, a file, or a quick poll.
You can add your text, images, and links to the text box. If you like, you can copy and paste these from another document.
When you are finished creating the post, you can choose to post it to other courses by using the Select courses drop-down menu below.
You can also choose whether to Allow student comments and Allow likes by checking the appropriate boxes.
Finally, you can choose Post with a delay. This is a handy feature, because you can prepare several days in advance and have the agendas post first thing in the morning.
Click Post and, unless you set a delay, you should see your post immediately.
Linking to Course Resources and Activities
If you would like to link text directly to a resources or activity in your course, open a new tab and navigate to the course page, and then to the item you would like linked. You can copy the link by right clicking with the mouse and choosing Copy link address.
Alternatively, you can open the item and copy the address at the top of the page.
Return to your post, select the text you would like to link, and then click the link icon.
A new window will open. Paste the link in the space provided. Usually, you will want to click Open in new window so that students can easily navigate back to the course. Click Create Link to link the text.
The text is now linked directly to the item in your course materials, which makes it possible for all of your students to get to the right activity or resource quickly and easily.
