Knowmia Introduces Personalized URLs for Sharing Flipped Lessons With Your Students

Knowmia is a great website and an iPad app for creating, sharing, and viewing video lessons. Today, they introduced the option to choose your own Knowmia URL to share with your students. This will allow you to simply send your students to your URL to view the lessons that you have created for them.

To claim your Knowmia address, login to myKnowmia and click "edit/view teacher profile."

One of the better features of Knowmia is the assignment wizard. The Knowmia Assignment Wizard allows teachers to design assignments that their students have to complete after watching a video. Students can check their own Knowmia accounts to see the assignments that their teachers have distributed to them.

To aid teachers in assessing their students, Knowmia offers an automatic scoring option. Knowmia's automatic scoring function works for multiple choice questions and numeric questions. The automatic scoring is based on your answer key. Assignments are scored when students make a submission. Along with automatic scoring teachers have the option to see when a student initially opened an assignment and how many questions they've tried before submitting the assignment.
