About This Space

Long-term students are provided with a Learning Space - a private virtual area where my students and I can collaborate on assignments and projects. Learning Spaces are perfect for individual or group learning. Each Learning Space comes with a blog, discussion forums, a media gallery, and a file centre, and students can upload their own cover photo and make their Space theirs! Click on a menu button to learn more about each function! Meet Lydia Learner (our Leader, who can moderate content and add/delete members), James Testman (our Moderator, who can edit/delete content but cannot manage members), and Ima Student (who is a Space member).

    Add as many pictures as you want to your album and provide detailed descriptions which will help you study.
  18. About the discussion forums The forums are where most of the real work is done between sessions! Here is where I interact with students between sessions, offering insights and comments which they can access 24/7. I can also post any useful information I come across which may be relevant to my students' interests or assignments. Each forum post consists of a topic; topics which receive several replies become discussion threads, which allow students to dive deep into issues and carry on important discussions which remain in their Space as long as they're a client. These threads can be used to prepare for written assignments as well as study for oral presentations and final exams. How can students use the forums? Motivated students can do lots with the forums! They can: Post questions about ideas arising from tutoring sessions or their English class Post assignments and essay prompts for us to work on between (and during) sessions Post research materials relating to their assignment(s) Carry on detailed discussions to build a sophisticated body of knowledge about an issue And much more! Check out the sample discussion threads for more information about how the forums can work for you or your student!
  19. And of course, your tutor will be here to offer feedback and insights!
  20. Other members of the Learning Space (if any) can comment on blog posts as well.
  21. About the Blog The key to great writing - like with so many other things in life - is practice, practice, practice! Your Learning Space's blog can be used for informal journal writing, reflections on current events, or for keeping a work diary of ideas on your essay or project. Use the fully-equipped editor to change text colour and background, size, and font and give your writing the look you want! Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

James Testman here! If you're part of a group using a Space, you can edit blog posts made by others to make collaboration really easy! Use different text colours to illustrate edits made by other Space members. Or, use text background colours to make your contribution stand out!
