Communication

Discussions

Use the Discussions tool in your course to encourage users to share thoughts on course material with their peers. You can set up forums and topics for users to ask questions, discuss course content and assignments, and work together in assigned groups and sections.

Calendar

The Pilot Calendar tool provides students with a visual display of course events. Events can be displayed in an outside calendar (i.e. Outlook or Google Calendar, as well as iPhone, Android, and Blackberry) by subscribing to the calendar feed.

Groups

Create group work areas for users with the Groups tool. You can use groups to organize users’ work on projects and assignments, or you can create special work areas for users with different learning needs.

Pilot Live

Narrate a PowerPoint presentation online live with this Web conferencing system, formerly known as Elluminate. Students may participate in the session with two-way audio, text messaging, a shared whiteboard, surveys, quizzes and more.

Email

The Email tool allows you to send email from within your Pilot course. Any messages that you send to your students will go to their WSU RaiderMail accounts. Any responses will come to your RaiderMail account.
