Post 'Em


Note: this information has been taken from the Laulima Help Center, which should be consulted for more information.

Using the Post'Em tool, you can upload a comma delimited (CSV) spreadsheet to present feedback to site participants.

Post'Em provides the following functionality:

  • Display a participant's individual feedback to that participant
  • Display all participants' feedback to the site leader
  • Allow the site leader to view a single participant's feedback
  • Calculate and display simple statistics for any numerical data
  • Upload more than one feedback file

You can use Post'Em to create multiple gradebooks, upload an Excel spreadsheet of grades, or simply post comments.

You must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions.

Post'Em is hidden by default, and must be turned on to be used. Click here for information on how to turn on a Laulima tool.

Spreadsheet formatting: For a spreadsheet file to be compatible with Post'Em, it must be saved in .csv format. The first column must contain usernames, and the first row must contain headings. Other data cells may contain text or numerical values. Download a sample .csv file here.
