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!
Fall classes are available on Blackboard, rooms have been assigned.
Have you been thinking of trying something new? Flipping the classroom, using clickers, webconferencing, or something really different. Perhaps just a remodeling of your past course is something you would like to explore.
