Digication is the course management system (CMS) utilized by the University of the Arts to manage courses, support collaboration, and organize programmatic assessment projects.
Digication has two parts. This Guide may prove useful in deciding how to use Digication in the classroom.
Course Management (Courses): Like Sakai (prior to Fall 2013), each course section's faculty and students are populated using records from the Office of the Registrar.
My Courses Tab
Shows current courses.
Past Courses Tab
Shows past courses. Courses will automatically move from Courses Tab to Past Courses Tab on the semester end date.
Course management can be used to track attendance, organize course assignments, give students feedback and facilitate assignment submission and grading. The course management software also allows faculty to contribute to program and university assessment projects.
E-Portfolios serve many purposes. As the name implies, faculty can ask students to document, organize, and even submit their work in an electronic portfolio.
E-Portfolio can also be used to build a simple website; which can be used as a course resource site, or to share materials and resources across multiple sections or support projects in multiple courses.
E-Portfolios are not 'one-to-one.' Faculty and students can maintain multiple e-portfolios for multiple purposes.
