I have blogged about Microsoft Teams and asked if anyone wanted to join. The question is what do they do and how will they help myself and my students.
“Microsoft Teams brings conversations, content and apps together in one online interface for faculty, students, staff and even non-ECU collaborators.
Join us Wednesday, October 17, when Microsoft expert, Manny Sandhu*, will discuss how Teams can enhance campus experiences, empower faculty, create optimum student engagement and elevate your institutional performance.” Click here to find what session might work for you!
My assistant Lauren Crawford, email@example.com (252-744-1106) will be in the office most days and may be able to assist you. Following is a list of resources which may be able to help with any questions.
Hurricane Season is in full force this year. And last year’s letter M is not a distant memory for most of us. Nor was I(rene) a few years ago. So I will repeat myself this week and remind everyone that with technology you can keep up with lecture content and delivery. See this post from 2010 as it is still applicable this season”
Since classes are canceled on Wednesday there will be empty classrooms with recording equipment waiting to be used, contact OET if you would like to schedule some time to record your class, no experience needed and I will turn on your mic!
As you have read SABA will be coming to end of life here at ECU in Spring 2019. So what conferencing system should you use and should students use, WebEx is the answer. Login to webex.ecu.edu and set up meetings with colleagues, guest lecturers, students and students can set up their own meetings. Want to try it out, send me an invite or ask me to invite you to my room!
So easy now and just as easy to integrate into your Grade Center,
Students can connect via phone, tablet or computer. You don’t even need the usb device just get a session id once Turning Cloud is launched. To get there from a computer it is https://student.turningtechnologies.com/#/profile and they would click Sign In and enter their ECU credentials.
Licenses will be automatically distributed when students register their clicker or mobile device in Blackboard.
Is there still a cost for a physical clicker?
Yes. Students required to use a physical clicker must still purchase a clicker or use and existing one.
Is there a cost for the mobile app?
No. To use an Android or iOS mobile device, students download the free app from the Google Play or Apple App Store. Students not using an Android or iOS device can participate in polling through a Web browser on their mobile device or laptop.
