Take the Leap!

Into Lecture Capture!  The CAHS has two lecture capture options, Mediasite is located in rooms 1305, 1335, 1340, 1345, 1410, 2305, 2345, 2365 and 3405.  Tegrity,  currently being tested, is now located in 2330, 2350, 2425 and 3350.  The only requirement for the instructor is to put on the mic, make sure it is turned on and for Tegrity users press “Record a Class” on their Tegrity link.

Contact OET for demonstrations in either Mediasite or Tegrity.


Dropbox not Blackboard

You know it is no longer a part of Blackboard but a handy software program that let’s you share files.   Here are just a few of the things that can be done with the Dropbox program:

File Sync – Dropbox allows you to sync your files online and across your computers automatically.

  • 2GB of online storage for free, with up to 100GB available to paying customers.

File Sharing – Sharing files is simple and can be done with only a few clicks.

  • Shared folders allow several people to collaborate on a set of files.

Online Backup – Dropbox backs up your files online without you having to think about it. Read more


Taking a break . . .

From my usual tips etc. and wanted to share a great program available through ECU that I participated in last summer the “ECU Strawberries on 903 CSA” program.  Great way to go outside your food “box”. 


Subscribers will receive a box of produce each week of a 12 week season, running from May through July. The assortment of produce will vary throughout the season and contain a wide variety of seasonal items. 

Due to the unpredictability of farming, we cannot guarantee any specific item. We do not customize individual boxes although fresh eggs and cut flowers will be optional for the subscribers.

Subscribers can purchase a Community Supported Agriculture Agreement – Grower Agreement for $240 (12 weeks @ $20/week). The prices of the produce will reflect retail values of seasonal items.   Read more


Where is ? ? ?

The Blackboard icon, the mail icon or something else you usually clicked at the top of the ECU homepage.  With the new roll out of ECU’s website some items are located in a different area.  You may or may not like the new site but there is a neat feature included called “My Links“. 

Just look down and to the right and you will see a white box called My Links, click on My Links, Login and you can then add personal links to the this folder.  This folder is available from the ECU homepage wherever you access it and login to My Links folder!
