Faculty Spotlight: Jason Cohen

Grading and Interacting with Large Class Discussions

With 750 students, Jason Cohen found grading and responding to his students’ posts on Packback
saved a lot of time compared to a traditional discussion board.

The reason I was so excited to use Packback was, not only did it save myself and my TAs time, but it also produced an environment where students were able to communicate together in order to provide a deeper understanding of the course content.”
