Coming Soon from Instructional Development (2/27 – 3/10)

Thursday morning we are offering a workshop on an online meeting tool built into myCourses called Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. You can use Collaborate to meet with students in a Skype-like online meeting space where you can use audio/video to talk and present documents, presentations, and show what you are doing on your computer screen. Many instructors use Collaborate to host online office hours, optional review sessions, and one-on-one meetings with students.

Next week on Tuesday morning we are offering a “Getting Started in myCourses” workshop. myCourses allows instructors to post files, accept assignment submissions, incorporate multimedia from popular websites like YouTube, and more!
