Digital Course Packs

For classes of 10 or more students, Poynter’s Digital Course Packs gather self-directed training modules and their assessments into a convenient package you can adopt for your course or as a supplement to your syllabus. They combine Poynter NewsU’s online training courses with two critical features for educators: tracking and testing. You can gauge your students’ learning via multiple-choice assessments and track each student’s participation and performance with our Instructor Dashboard. Digital Course Packs can be woven into core teaching and learning (as required course material) or form an e-learning companion to your syllabus.
