Using TRACS Lessons Tool

Dr. Ray Niekamp

April 10, 2015

See how Dr. Ray Niekamp, Associate Professor in the School of Journalism & Mass Communication converted his face-to-face course to an online course. Niekamp used the Lessons tool in TRACS to present course content and materials to students. Lessons is a fairly new tool that is gaining widespread use because it allows faculty to create content on web pages and to link directly to Assignments, Assessments, Forum discussions and to learning materials in Resources.
