One Minute DC Connect Tip

Did you know that the order to which you link rubrics to assignments and then to grade items in DC Connect matters? Linking a rubric with a grade item prevents you from being able to link an assignment with that grade item. The rubric should be added to the assignment, followed by linking the assignment with the appropriate grade item. 

The Pomodoro Technique: The Science Behind It

Have you heard about the Pomodoro Technique?  It is a strategy to remain focused and increase efficiency. Give it a try during marking season! With the pomodoro technique, you set a timer for 25 minutes and focus on one task at hand without distraction, followed by a five-minute break. You repeat that cycle four times and then take an extended break.  There are many online pomodoro timers to try.
