Work group
From now on you can create a work group in every open online course hosted on Stepik and get access to your student's progress and solutions

How can you benefit from a work group?
1
Try out blended learning or flip your classroom with minimal effort
You can use assignments from online courses as a part of in-class activity. Or let your students watch lectures home to make more time for meaningful discussion of the material face to face. The content is already there! You can just try it out without investing hours into making your own.
2
Use online course as a precondition for your class
Do you have students from different backgrounds? Do you need to make sure they poses certain skills and amount of knowledge to move on with the material? Use online courses as a way for your students to fill in the gaps and assess their progress by observing their performance on assignments.
3
Use online course as additional material for your class
Do you have more material that you'd like to share with your students than time on your hands? Use online courses as a way to teach your students more while still getting access to the grades they are getting.
We're currently testing the "Work groups" and it is incredibly important for us to get your opinion on the functionality and the way it can be useful to you.


To create a "Work group":

  • Go to https://stepik.org/new-class

  • Type in the ID of the course that you'd like to use. Also state the name of the Work group and the description that the will be shown to your students in the invitation. You can access the list of the classes you've created on https://stepik.org/classes

  • Invite your students to the Work Group by sending them the link, for example, by email.
    Note that your students will have to enroll in the course on the course information page as well apart from joining your class.
    We do not give access to students' grades and answers without the student's consent. The fact that a student accepted the invitation to a working group is considered to be his or her consent for transferring the grades and answers to the educator.

  • You can track the progress of your students on https://stepik.org/classes.
We're currently testing this feature, therefore you can get a free trial until the 1st of February 2018.

Note that you will not get access to the course content and the settings of the quzzes. You will get access to the right answers to the quezzes.
