Multimodal Tutorial: Math IXL

My first attempt at creating a Multimodal Tutorial!

I chose to focus on Math IXL because it is a resource that we use in my district almost every day. Each year we spend valuable class time teaching students how to use the site, and then always spend additional time to reteach when kids forget. I hope to use this multimodal tutorial with my class to “reteach” the basics of how we use IXL. Since the youtube video is accessible from anywhere, I envision posting this to my class website so students can reference it at home when they need help! I also think this tutorial will be helpful to my colleagues at my school who are new to IXL.

I used Screen-Cast-O-Matic to record my video. There was a bit of a learning curve for me as I have never recorded a screen cast, but I thought this resource was relatively user friendly and I eventually figured it out!

Here is my youtube video that is intended for students:

Here is the full multimodal tutorial intended for educators to learn about IXL:

This project was a brand new challenge, but I am pleased with the final product. I look forward to becoming more proficient in screen-casting to create additional resources for students, parents, and colleagues.
