    Teaching Online

     

    Pivoting quickly from in-person to online can be challenging. We share guides to make the process manageable and encourage you to schedule a 1:1 consulting as you begin the process.

    The Learning Management System (Blackboard)

    Blackboard is the Learning Management System (LMS) that allows faculty and students to communicate asynchronously. The system supports instructor engagement with students, student engagement with each other, and digital access to content, assignments, and assessments. We have an entire collection of Blackboard videos online, but here are a few best practices that will ease the transition to teaching and learning online:

  •  

    Course Content and Materials

    When developing a course there are various multimedia files (text, video, and audio) that can be aggregated and delivered to students through the LMS. While many instructors have these files on their there computer there are best practices to ensure the content is manageable by faculty and accessible to students. It's also important to note that some of these files will need intermediary processing to reduce file size OR to be loaded in a third party site and linked too.

    • Slide decks are presentations created in a variety of applications to help convey the concepts of a topic.
    • Videos can be produced on campus with special tools, uploaded to YouTube, and linked in your course to provide a virtual lecture.
    • Audio files can be recorded for a podcast style presentation
    • Graphic files can be obtained from around the web and integrated in the resources you offer your class.
  •  

    Tools, Engagement, and Communication

    The LMS offers out-of-the box tools like blogs, journals, and discussion boards to help quickly create areas for students to engage with you and peers. These tools can be useful for building communication and collaboration opportunities. You are not limited to only tools embedded within the LMS and rather encouraged to branch out and integrate additional tools in your course. Support for these tool types can fall on the vendor or the instructor, but Instructional Technology is available to help provide more context and help with bringing them to life by linking them to your course.
