Presenters: Kayla Gori, Office of Digital Learning, Kaylyn Kinney, Adjunct Instructor of Music
This webinar highlights strategies for designing an organized, high-quality hybrid or online course. Accessibility, aesthetics, thematic, modular, and chronological design formats in eClass are topics of discussion, as well as the alignment of learning objectives and course goals in context to the way content is organized. We also introduce a pre-designed template for MSMC instructors to use when developing their hybrid or online course on eClass.
The Ins and Outs of Course Sharing
Presenters: Denise Garofalo, Librarian for Systems & Catalog Services; Kayla Gori, Office of Digital Learning
It’s a common practice for collaborating instructors to share eClass content amongst themselves, but how do you know that your content is secure in the meantime? In this brief session, we will tell you about the procedures we use to protect your intellectual property, and how you can work with us to securely share your course content with other instructors (if desired). We also share our tips for sharing content with other instructors yourself, and briefly touch upon incorporating Open Educational Resources (OER) into your course!
Using Zoom for Instructional Purposes – The Basics
Presenters: Anthony Scardillo, Assoc. Professor of Marketing; Charles Lynch, Office of Digital Learning
We explore the best practices for Zoom instructional sessions, as well as go over the basics of your account, profile, settings, microphone, video, backgrounds, security, screen sharing, chat and participant options. We will also discuss ways that Zoom can be used for one-on-one student support and virtual office hours.
Designing for Low-Stakes Assessments
Presenters: Marie-Therese Sulit, Professor of English; William Biersack, Office of Digital Learning
Guided by your course learning objectives, using shorter, more regular assessments may provide students a better foundation of knowledge and practice with the material—especially in a time when high-stakes exams are less optimal. In this workshop, we will discuss low-stakes assessments, and how to create them in eClass
Aligning Assessments with the eClass Gradebook
Presenters: Anne-Marie Uebbing, Assoc. Professor of Nursing; William Biersack, Office of Digital Learning
Learn about the relationship between eClass assessments (assignments and quizzes) and the gradebook. In this webinar, we review the basics of creating an “assignment” submission drop box, but also go beyond the nuts and bolts of assessment creation and management by reviewing best practices and helpful hints that can contribute toward a better, more efficient experience for both you and your students. This is a good opportunity to ensure alignment with e-assessments and gradebook, and with your syllabus!
