Release Conditions

Wednesday, October 6, 2021; 12:15 – 12:45pm; Zoom

Learn how to add release conditions to content or activities in onQ to create a custom learning path. When you attach a release condition to an item, users cannot see that item until they meet the associated condition. For example, you could attach a release condition to the second topic in your course’s content area that would hide that topic until users viewed the topic before it. Or you could create a condition that required users to view a content topic before gaining access to a quiz, or one that required them to post to a discussion topic before they could see a content module.

Intelligent Agents

Wednesday, November 3, 2021; 12:15 – 12:45pm; Zoom

Learn how to use the Intelligent Agents tool to contact your students based on course activity criteria that you define. For example, you can set up an Intelligent Agent that will email all students who scored less than a 60% on a practice quiz and invite them to an online office hour before the next test.

Course Awards

Wednesday,  December 8, 2021; 12:15 -12:45pm; Zoom

onQ Awards are a great way to give students instant feedback and to reward them for the work they do in your week/module/course. The tool lets you set up and issue badges and certificates. Any Award you create can either be released manually by yourself, or alternatively, you can attach release conditions to the Award to help issue it automatically once the student has fulfilled the release condition.
