Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series:

Student Engagement Tools- Blogs, Wikis, Discussion Boards and Journals

When: Wednesday, June 18th 12:00 pm CST
Where: M201A Downtown Campus
Track: Collaboration and Assessing Learners
Presenter: Keely McDonough, Blackboard

 

Blackboard Learn offers four communication tools for self-reflection, collaboration and communication. In this session Blackboard will discuss each tool and share examples.
When members of an online community direct their efforts toward a common goal, powerful connections are made. Learners can achieve more through in-depth conversations, relationship building, and problem solving in a community. Without a goal, connections, and conversations, there is no community.

Mobile Learning Impact on Student Engagement Webinar

Mobile Learning Impact on Student Engagement

Webinar Description: Innovation in teaching is promoted on the Framingham State University campus through a Teaching and Technology Grant. The program was reshaped a few years ago, when a Biology Professor asked the question, “What can I do with iPads in the classroom?” The success of her pilot influenced the campus to: form a Mobile Task Force, fund additional pilots, purchase Blackboard Mobile Learn, and recently host a multi-institution sponsored workshop on using mobile technology in the classroom. During the presentation and interaction with the participants, we will share experiences, what we discovered and our top 10 mobile tools.

Presenter: Clair Waterbury and Robin Robinson
Location: Web Conferencing using Blackboard Collaborate
Date: 3/27/2014 12:00:00 PM (Central Time (US & Canada))

By default, YouTube will upload videos no greater than 15 minutes long.  However, there is a way that you can increase your limit to 30 minutes.
