Engage and interact in Minerva

Guides that focus on the built-in Minerva tools and integrated tools you can use to engage and interact with your students.

Minerva Journals are personal spaces for students to communicate privately with you. Students can also use journals as a self-reflective tool. There are two types of journal in Minerva.
If you enable class conversations for individual content items, such as Documents, Tests, and Assignments, students can discuss the content with you and their peers.
Discussion Boards and Conversations - what's the difference?

Minerva Discussions are a good way to encourage students to think critically about their coursework and interact with each others’ ideas asynchronously.

Interacting through Virtual Classrooms

Virtual classrooms offer live (synchronous) video and audio engagement and interaction between students and teachers as part of online learning. There are currently three virtual classroom systems in use at the University, you can link to them from your Minerva modules.
