Classroom Technology

The Classroom Technology database provides information on seating capacity, equipment and instructional documents for using room features. Prior to a semester, it is a good practice to review what is available in classrooms in which you are scheduled to teach.

New Feature: Room Photos

Photos have been added to the Details for each classroom so you also can take a peek at the room layout and instructor station.

Accessibility

One method to address the needs of learners with disabilities is providing course content in alternate formats or modalities.

Learners differ in the ways that they perceive and comprehend information that is presented to them. For example, those with sensory disabilities (e.g., blindness or deafness); learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia); language or cultural differences, and so forth may all require different ways of approaching content.1

In UDL (Universal Design for Learning), a first step to begin providing alternate formats is often termed plus one, which means providing content in one alternate format. For example, in addition to providing an electronic version of your syllabus, creating a short video explaining the syllabus.

Applying UDL in your courses not only serves learners with disabilities but also helps students who have no disabilities.

OneDrive

What is the best way to share a file via OneDrive?

To share a file with specific people that may not be forwarded, we recommend sharing via the Invite People option. The email invitation option allows you to assign View or Edit access to a specific recipient via their email address. You can stop sharing at any time. You cannot prevent someone from downloading your files or distributing links to your files.

Can I share with someone external to ECU?

Yes, you can share via the Invite People email invitation. The recipient must have a Microsoft account to access the content. Anyone can create a Microsoft Account. The person you have shared with will need to create a Microsoft account and use the username you shared the file with such as xxx@gmail.com. You can stop sharing at any time.

A Word about Sharing

As with any technology or method to share files, consider what information you are sharing and with whom it should be shared. If you share content using a link via OneDrive with View Access, users you have shared with can still download and save your content. Documents can also be copied and saved by taking a screenshot of the content. So, think before you share. Learn more at OneDrive Cloud Storage.
