After inviting your participants, proceed to give notices and orientations, the most important part of conducting education.
To help out with settling CLASSUM to learning settings, we have prepared an ‘Orientation Guide (4 ways)’ for Admins
1. Use CLASSUM as the One and Only Channel for Communication
Let the participants know that you will receive questions only through CLASSUM!
Example) We receive questions only through CLASSUM. If you click on ‘Ask a Question’ to leave inquiries, the TA will check and respond afterward.
(Picture 1) Announcement Example
By bringing/concentrating all communication into a single space, you can increase participation and take a step closer toward ‘Collective Intelligence,’ CLASSUM’s core value.
2. Share Handy Tips
Set and share Handy Tips in order to facilitate active participation in CLASSUM.
3. Help Familiarize Through Self-Introductions

To inculcate a habit of asking questions through CLASSUM, ask participants to post self-introductions as a practice. Help participants familiarize themselves with using CLASSUM.
4. Announce Opportunity for Extra Credits and Rewards According to Participation
(Picture 4) Example notice about evaluating participation rates through CLASSUM 1
Notify the participants about plans to award them or participation-point policies based on data analytics on CLASSUM. For instance, you may recognize the most interactive members by checking the number of questions and responses.
By referring to CLASSUM’s ‘Analytics’ function, you can check individual participants’ number of questions asked, the number of answers posted, and the number of posts liked.
※ You can export such data to an excel file to easily calculate scores.
