What You're Missing: Tuesday Webinars
Each Tuesday throughout the semester (excepting spring break week) we present a webinar (you login from anywhere) on a variety of interesting educational technology topics. So far, we have presented on:
"What to Tell Your Students About Blackboard"
"How to Post Your Won Video to YouTube"
Using the Blackboard Visual Textbox Editor"
"Test Deployment Options in Blackboard"
"Curious Question Types" (a rundown on the possible Blackboard question types)
"Using Google Scholar"
Over the next few weeks we will be presenting on:
"The Blackboard Early Warning System" (set criteria to warn you when students are falling behind)
"Using Groups in Blackboard"
"Copying Blackboard Courses" (just in time to get ready for summer courses)
"No Fooling, Archive Your Course" (just in time to show you how to backup your Bb courses)
"Remember Everything with Evernote"
"Blogging and Journaling in Blackboard"
"Easy Websites with WordPress"
"Finalizing Grades in Blackboard"
Webinars take off at 2pm each Tuesday. We use Blackboard Collaborate (formerly called "Elluminate Live!") to present, but you do not have to login to Blackboard to participate. Just go to this web page and, when the time comes, click the Login link. (Actually, its best to get there about 5 minutes early to make sure you can connect successfully). If you want to be sure your computer can support a Blackboard Collaborate session, use this page to test.
A full description of the topics and schedule may be found on the ATRC website. Faculty seeking Professional Development credit should add the session to their PD contract. After the sessions are over (they are all less than 1 hour) you can review them on our Webinar Archives page.
It's not all online. We continue to offer instructor led, in-person workshops. We encourage faculty members who want to improve existing or develop new technology skills to attend. Over the next few weeks we will be offering:
Blackboard with Cream & Sugar
There are only two Bb with Cream & Sugar sessions left this semester. That's right, come on by room LL-111 any time between 7:30am and 10:30 AM on Wednesday March 7 or 14 to joing our Blackboard technicians (Dave, Shay and Chris) to ask anything you want to know about Blackboard (or any other educational technology topic, for that matter) and have a cup of coffee or tea with them. PD credit is available for these sessions.
