Grandchild and because it is my blog I can brag!  Micah arrived Friday 10/26 at 11:27, weighing at 6 lbs, 12 oz, doing quite well at home with mom, dad and big brother who had his own introduction on this blog!


What I learned . . .

At the Mediasite Conference last week and in a meeting today!  Spring semester will have a feature where commenting and annotations can be enabled on recordings to allow more interactivity between yourself and your students.  It gives a “YouTube” type of view.  Want to see more?  Contact this office.


Team work

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!
