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!
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.
At least Summer Session 2018. As the semester starts winding down why not make sure students are understanding since 11 weeks get intensive. Using Audience Response software such as Responseware (Turning Point) or Socrative can engage students and let you see what they might be missing.
As an instructor, you can create instant polling questions from Web content, PDF’s, Microsoft Office products, whiteboards and more. Quick questions can be polled by letting students use their phones, tablets or computers by using Responseware.
We are 3 1/2 weeks into the semester and here is a Best Practice that is included for Distance Education content but is a great idea for all classes to check in on “How is the course going?” and “Do you have any suggestions?“
Early feedback surveys or just informal discussions ask students to provide feedback on what is working well in a course and what might help them have a better course experience. This early feedback is done early in the course so corrections and modifications can be made. It is an easy opening for students who might have comments or suggestions or questions.”
You could use discussion board, or a doodle poll, or a round table discussion!
