Upcoming Workshops

Did you know that instructors are able to post course materials online for their students? myCourses allows instructors to post files, accept electronic assignment submissions, share content from the internet, maintain an online grade book, and more! Sign-up for tomorrow’s Getting Started in myCourses workshop to learn how myCourses can become the digital headquarters of your courses.

Want to learn how you can create professional presentations? Join us tomorrow at our Introduction to PowerPoint workshop! We will explore the different views, including the use of outlining, and the slide sorter. Also covered are the addition of images, sounds, animation and video to your presentation.

Are you tired of filling out and collecting paper forms? Wednesday’s Creating Forms with Adobe Acrobat can help! Come learn how you can use Acrobat to set up PDF files as interactive forms for distribution and data collection. Participants learn to work with Acrobat’s toolbars, navigate, edit and annotate PDF documents, manage bookmarks, and set document security via passwords. Also covered are Acrobat’s form features, from form creation through distribution and compiling responses.

Have you ever thought about recording a lecture from your office/home and making it available to your students online? Kaltura can make it happen! Kaltura allows you to record audio narration over PowerPoint presentations, documents, or any other content on your computer. Come learn how this can be done at our Recording Lectures with Kaltura workshop on Thursday.

The mail merge feature in Microsoft Word can save you quite a bit of time if you need to send multiple letters or documents that address recipients individually. Mail merge also makes tasks like generating labels and printing envelopes much easier. Join us next Tuesday at our Word Mail Merge workshop if you would like to learn more! Conditional if-then statements are also covered, as well as using data from external sources such as Peoplesoft. Familiarity with the basic text-editing features of Word is required.

All UMass Dartmouth faculty and staff have access to a powerful surveying tool called Qualtrics. Qualtrics surveys are a great way to gather research data and survey your students. Register for next Wednesday’s Introduction to Qualtrics workshop to learn how you can get started creating surveys with Qualtrics.
