Road Show – Part One

Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
~ William Blake

We are going on a road show next week, and you’re invited to come along!

We’ll be in Lake Mary from Wednesday to Friday. Ucompass is attending and presenting at the Florida District Virtual Instruction Program Network (FLDVIPN) Symposium. The event is happening at the Marriott Lake Mary.

The FLDVIPN was developed to help identify successful leaders, outstanding programs, innovative and inspiring teaching, and to provide a united voice to help shape the future of virtual education at the district levels. Their network symposium will gather over 300 professionals to attend Florida’s K-12 online and blended learning conference.
FLDVIPN600Check out their website and look at the schedule.  We will be presenting coming attractions in Educator on Friday at 9am. I will be presenting our Educator story with Mike Houghton, our User Experience guru. We will both be stationed in the Ucompass booth to answer your questions, explore some requests, and listen to your stories.

As an added bonus, our CEO and founder, Edward Mansouri, will be introducing our latest project called WeatherSTEM, the day before … Thursday at 2:15pm. This will be of special interest to anyone in the STEM disciplines, but it will also fascinate anyone who wants to explore the integration of devices and data into any course of study.

We’d love to see you there. We have lots to share and look forward to it.

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

  1. To whom it may concern,

    As a current user of QUIA.com, I just wonder why can’t Educator try to imitate some of the correction feedback.

    I’d like have a default check to email the student the grade. I ‘d appreciate not having to check that box for every assignment I correct. Is there anything like that?

    I would also like the system to be able to recognize the correct response for short response answer. In QUIA I can enter numerous combinations of words that the student can respond. Is there a way to do this ?

    Last but not least, How can I create a multiple choice test myself?

    Thanks for your responses, I look forward to hearing from you:)

    1. Ms. Theobald -
      Thank you for responding here and lending some of your thinking to ours.

      As for the student grading email, that does seem like a great feature. Our developers will give that some thought. I imagine it’s something that we will see … sooner or later.
      The autograder-reader will likely need to wait until our new system is released this summer. This is surely a possibility.
      As for creating tests yourself … sadly this is NOT currently granted permission by leadership at FLVS. As soon as that light is lit, Educator is ready!
      Thanks again.
