VoiceThread

VoiceThread is a social media tool that allows students and instructors to upload and share images, videos and documents and then have an online conversation about each other's posts through audio, video or text comments. Voicethread can be been in online courses to establish a sense of social presence among instructors and students.

In this workshop, participants will learn step-by-step how to upload content, comment and annotate on that content, and share it with others. Participants will also learn how to create groups, set sharing permissions within those groups and privately share VoiceThreads with individuals.

VoiceThread was upgraded.

Over the Holiday break, VoiceThread was upgraded to a new version. Because of the changes, you may want to attend even if you have attended this training in the past.

Respondus and Studymate

This session will show you how to use and create tests, quizzes, pools, and learning objects with Respondus and StudyMate. You will also learn how to import and manage your existing exams and pools.

Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard. This set of tools makes creating tests, quizzes, pools and surveys much easier than the built-in tools in Blackboard.

StudyMate Author lets instructors create ten Flash-based activities and games using four simple templates. The Flash activities can be used with any web server or published directly to Blackboard. StudyMate Author will import items from MS Word files and publisher test banks, making it easy to create interesting, interactive activities from existing content. The eCampus site license allows us to distribute these programs to any faculty member who is teaching, or will be teaching online.

Those of you who do not have this software installed on your computer will be given a copy to install on your work computer. If you are planning to use your own computer for this session, please be sure to come at least 10 minutes early to get the software installed. Again, this program only works on Windows computers. .
