Maximize Your Personalized Learning Experience

To help you get the most out of your Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning experience, there are some helpful features and tips you can take advantage of.

A full Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning tutorial is also available.

Revising and Practicing

After learning a lesson or completing a node for the first time, you will be able to revise, practice, and quick practice that lesson. To help you understand the options better, here is the definition of each:

  • Revise: This feature allows you to redo a lesson in its entirety (both content and questions), providing you an option to improve your Knowledge State (score).
  • Practice: This option displays only the questions from the end of a lesson without the content.
  • Quick Practice: This option is similar to Practice in that it will only display questions from the end of a lesson. However, only a select a number of questions will be displayed.

If you only see one of the above actions or options for a lesson, click on the lesson node.

Then, click on the dropdown arrow under Actions and select the desired action.

Revising to Improve Your Score

You can go back and revise any lesson in a Personalized Learning assignment to improve your score, as long as you redo it prior to any due date your instructor may have set. If your instructor has not set a due date for the assignment, you can go back and revise your answers in order to improve your score whenever you would like to do so. To try and improve your score, select Revise and then complete the lesson again (both content and questions).

Revising Without Changing Your Score

If you wish to revise (in order to review the content or both the content and the questions) but don’t want to change your grade, the recommended way to do so is to select Revise, review the content you desire, and then click the Stop button and select the Discard progress option. This will exist the lesson and discard any new progress, but keep any previous score you have earned. You can also review the content and exit before the questions.

Highlighting and Annotations

When reading content in Personalized Learning lessons, you can create highlights and annotations.

Highlight Text

To use the highlight feature, select the text you wish to highlight and click on the paintbrush icon. You can choose to make the selected portion’s text blue, red, or bold.

Annotate Content

To use the annotation feature, select the text you wish to create an annotation for and click on the speech bubble icon. In the Create annotation popup, you can type in your own notes or annotation, then click Create to save it.

Other Tips for Success

Personalized learning is a very different way of learning. Your interaction with the content is what helps the system develop your own learning path. It is important to read your required textbook. This content will likely be included in the assessment of your knowledge in Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning.

Plan your time accordingly! Don’t wait until the last minute to complete modules. The earlier you begin, the more time you will have to revise later on.
