Have you ever thought about making a lecture available to your students online? Come learn how it can be done at tomorrow’s Recording with TechSmith Relay workshop. Relay allows you to record audio narration over PowerPoint presentations, documents, or any other content on your computer. Please bring your own laptop to participate in this workshop.

On Wednesday, we are offering a workshop on Blackboard Collaborate Ultra the online meeting tool built into myCourses. Collaborate can be used to have live audio/video chat sessions with students. Collaborate also allows you to share your screen and present office documents/presentations. Many instructors use Collaborate to host online office hours, conduct optional review sessions, and meet one-on-one with students.

Next week on Monday morning, we are offering a Getting Started in myCourses workshop. myCourses allows instructors to post files, accept assignment submissions, share multimedia from the internet, and more! Sign-up now to learn how myCourses can become the digital headquarters for your courses.

The Online Teaching and Learning Strategies course that starts on Wednesday, November 1st provides an introduction to the current research and best practices for online teaching and learning. Participants will work independently and collaboratively with peers to design and build one unit of online learning in a myCourses site. This fully online four-week course is designed to support the UMass Dartmouth Quality Online Course Review Rubric.

VoiceThread is an interactive discussion and collaboration tool that can be used to facilitate asynchronous audio/video conversations around images, documents, presentations, and videos. Join us for our Humanizing Online Discussions with VoiceThread workshop next Thursday to learn how VoiceThread can be used to take your online discussions to the next level.
