Providing feedback in web-based learning
In distance learning supported by LMS, it is extremely important to provide automated or partially automated feedback about learning outcomes to students as well as feedback about the efficiency and quality of teaching and learning to teachers and to management of the institution that provides web-based learning courses. In this article, we present the solutions implemented in the LMS eCampus that are theoretically grounded and have been proved in praxis.

Teaching for good behaviour
The quality of our teaching inevitably has an impact on the behaviour of our students. This unit considers some of the factors that can contribute to misbehaviour in the classroom and some of the steps that we can take as teachers to re-engage students with the learning process. This unit considers the format of lessons, how lessons are delivered, how to present lesson content in an interesting and creative way, and the development of "engaging lessons".

Absolute Value Graphing
Graphing inequalities with two variables can be tricky and is made even more tricky when we graph inequalities with two variables and absolute value. This video explains, With absolute value graphing, if the inequality is similar to the equation of a line, then we get a V shape, and we shade above or below the V. This is very similar to graphing inequalities with two variables. The difference is that we are graphing inequalities with absolute values which makes the V-shape. (3:21)

Constructing a Perpendicular Bisector
When looking at a line segment, there is only one line that will pass through the midpoint that will be a constant distance between the two endpoints. This line is called the perpendicular bisector. This video explains how to construct the perpendicular bisector by first finding the midpoint of the line segment and then using a compass and straight edge to draw the perpendicular line. (1:29)

Constructing the Incenter
The point of concurrency of the three angle bisectors of a triangle is the incenter. It is the center of the circle that can be inscribed in the triangle, making the incenter equidistant from the three sides of the triangle. This video explains how to construct the incenter by first constructing the three angle bisectors. The point where they all intersect is the incenter. The incenter is always located within the triangle. (1:08)

Discussion Strategies
Barry Hoonan and his fifth- and sixth-grade cluster explore ways in which individual readers can help themselves enter the story world of a text. The group explores two different methods—using sticky notes in several different ways and mapping—which lead its members directly into the text. The text they have chosen for their attention, Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman, features a 14-year-old protagonist who suffers from cerebral palsy
