    DEX Demo with IU13
     

    It was our pleasure to host Ken Zimmerman from IU13 for an hour-long webinar showing the updated DEX features available to students and staff through IU13 IMS resources.

    Ken showed how to search and filter for subject area and grade level specific content. He also showed how to save content for later use and then share out to students through DEX classes (see below for Schoology specific information).

    The Getting Started Guide to Virtual Learning will help with engagement in the continuity of learning while outside of the classroom.

    The Professional Learning Network is where to go for step-by-step guides and interactive courses to learn how to use DEX effectively.

    Discovery Education in Schoology

    Discovery Education has an app in Schoology, however, it cannot be enabled due to the configuration requirements needed in Active Directory.

    Good news though!

    You can still share DEX with your students in Schoology by inserting the link to the resource.

    Teachers: To insert a link in Schoology to a DEX resource:

    • Log in to DEX and find a resource that you'd like to share with your students.
    • Click the Share button and copy the Share link.
    • Back in Schoology, click Add Materials and select Insert File/Link/External Tool. Paste in the link and enter a title. Select the sections where you'd like it shared.
