This article is an introduction to Uzity’s features, which will help your team to increase the effectiveness of Uzity implementation in your institution.
1. Organization features & privacy
Uzity allows you to create the organization and showcase the courses under your own name and brand. You can decide who will join your organization by adjusting the privacy settings. If the organization is configured as hidden, it will be visible only to members and if configured as closed, it will be visible to everyone and they can join only with an invitation.
2. Increase productivity through efficient user management and user groups
The user management features in Uzity helps to increase productivity through well-defined user roles. The available user roles are Administrator, Instructor, Co-instructor and learner. While administrators can manage the organization, its people and courses, instructors can build, teach and manage courses. While learners can join and participate in courses, co-instructors can help instructors to manage courses. You can create learner groups and instructor groups for quick course enrollment and easy communication.
3. Create engaging courses with the easy-to-use course editor
You can create course content using the easy-to-use course editor available in Uzity. You can insert various forms of content like videos, audios, images, text, presentations and documents. This will keep the learners engaged with the course material. Uzity supports high definition(HD) videos and audios. The auto-save feature of Uzity saves the course creation in progress and so you do not have to worry about losing the content. Also, you can reuse the content uploaded once to one course to all courses across the organization. Uzity also has a powerful equation editor to help with scientific content creation.
4. Efficient management of created courses
Similar to the privacy settings of organizations, a course can be configured as open, closed and hidden. The course privacy along with the hierarchy of sections and topics with the drag and drop tools let you organize the course quickly and effectively. In Uzity, you can make changes to a course in real-time. The changes will be published instantly without interrupting the learners. There is a version history feature of course that helps you track changes made to the course and restore past versions at any time. Instructors can also view the course progress by learners and the learners preview feature helps the course creators get a preview of how the course will appear to learners.
5. Learner Experience in Uzity
You can control how learners navigate your course by configuring either as progressive or collateral. In progress, learners complete and navigate courses topic by topic. In collateral, learners can quickly jump to any topic listed in the sidebar. Learners can also keep track of their course progress any time and resume learning from where they left-off. Uzity provides a distraction-free course reader enabling learners to immerse themselves in the content. With the discussions feature learners can collaborate, pose questions, and exchange ideas about course material, assignments, and projects with other learners and instructors.
6. Manage communication
Stay updated about what is going on in your organization and courses using the email and in-app notifications within Uzity. In Uzity, you can keep the discussions going even after classes are over. You can also use the announcement feature for communicating to multiple users at the same time. There is an option to communicate to all learners of a course through course announcements and all the learners within the organization through organization announcements. The in-app messaging feature of Uzity helps in effective communication between the learners of a course. There is no need for an external email or another communication platform. All the discussions can be done within Uzity itself.
7. Manage assessments & quizzes
The assessments and quizzes feature within Uzity helps the instructors to measure the course progress by setting up different types of assessments for courses. The assessments can be graded or non-graded assessments.
