The setting: You’re teaching an entry level math course, something along the lines of college algebra, trigonometry, calculus, or something in between. You’ve created your teaching materials, you’ve prepared all your assignments and exams, and finalized your syllabus. Now it’s time to create and deploy your online course materials.
Luckily, your school has a Learning Management System (LMS) that has been adopted school-wide. You now spend hours, or if you’re lucky, someone on your staff spends those hours, digitizing your materials specifically for your LMS. It’s the week before classes start and everything is ready to go.
After a few weeks of teaching, you’ve arrived at a few conclusions: students aren’t engaged in the material that was digitized for the LMS, students are passing around answer keys to the online multiple choice homework, DFW rates are steadily climbing as the weeks go on, and overall engagement for the course is dismal.
As it turns out, one of the biggest challenges for STEM instructors and department heads is trying to push out online course materials using their LMS. Why is this? An LMS wasn’t designed with STEM in mind. It lacks sophisticated technology to support STEM-specific challenges, it can’t produce the visualizations and engaging interactive tools that are expected, and it certainly doesn’t provide a friendly user experience for students to learn and understand STEM online.
