TA-help.me

INTRODUCTION

Do you want to organize better your student tutorials, where students don't need to raise their hands anymore, but just write their questions in a (digital) queue? Where students are helped in the order their question arised? Use TA-help.me to achieve this. Also during online class TA-help.me can help you better.

WHY TA-HELP.ME

TA-help.me optimizes the process of assisting students in (online) tutorials (werkcolleges):

  • Students register their questions inside the tool, to avoid keeping their hand up, and to be helped in the right order
  • Teaching assistants (TA’s) might be in different rooms, but by having questions registered, the right TA can help the right question.
  • Sign-off procedure of students is automated

HOW TO USE TA-HELP.ME

No software is required to use TA-help.me; TA-help.me is generally available as a Canvas plugin. TA-Help.me needs to be enabled in your Canvas course. First, navigate to your Canvas course and go to the page Settings. Under the Navigation tab you can see that TA-Help.me is currently disabled for you course. You can enable it by clicking ‘+ Enable’ under the options. After doing so a new button will be visible in your course navigation. By clicking on this button, you will get into the setup process.

(Detailed information about how to enable a Navigation Link can be found in the Canvas documentation.)
