Teacher Tip Thursday
Grab your lunch and connect to a quick 20-30 min. webinar all in the comfort of your office or home.
CTAT, Library Services and the Learning Center have come together to offer some short 20-30 minute webinars (via Adobe Connect). If you cannot sit in on one of these sessions live, they will be recorded and archived so you will be able to access them at your convenience. So please mark your calendar and be ready for our Spring webinar series.
Now that CTAT has completed iPad basic and intermediate workshops on both the Harriman and Oak Ridge campuses we can see our faculty are utilizing this great tool in many ways. If you would like some assistance with your iPad please feel free to email us at email@example.com or call us at 865-882-4556 to set up an appointment. We will be glad to come to your office and help you with integrating the iPads into your teaching.
Did you miss our Spring, 2014 In-Service sessions?
Have you ever been sitting somewhere wishing you had access to wi-fi so you could grade a few of your student’s assignments? With D2L version 10.3 and the new “Assignment Grader” app you can download your student’s assignments on your iPad (with wi-fi connection), travel to a “no wi-fi” zone, grade those assignments (with your iPad and new Jot Pro stylus), then sync with D2L when you return to an area that has wi-fi. Checkout Assignment Grader to see how you can make grading easier.
Course Development Assistance
CTAT instructional designers will consult with you regarding face-2-face, online and hybrid course design. Also, we will assist you with developing multimedia materials including text, images, audio, video, animation, and interactive elements for use in instruction. If you need help with structuring your Momentum/D2L course or with hosting media files please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (865) 882-4556.
