And it may be a new LMS on the horizon. Please take time to attend one of the LMS Spring Demonstrations. They will be held both on East and West Campus, and if you haven’t check out the new student center here is a great excuse.
“ECU is undertaking a review of our current and future learning management system (LMS) needs to determine next steps as our LMS hardware requires replacing in the next two years. The timing of this hardware replacement combined with significant changes in the LMS market make this an opportune time to evaluate LMS options to determine which system will best meet our needs.
And finals begin. As we all say where did the semester go? Take note of what went well this semester and what did not. Put a calendar reminder if you are not sure you will remember. Ready to try something new for Spring Semester. Various training’s are offered by OET and on Cornerstone. Think about lecture capture and desktop publishing for those winter weather days! Want to get students more involved try clickers, flipped classrooms or ?????
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.
