WorldClassRoom June Webinars

| May 31, 2013

Web Enhancement with Canvas: Webinars and Open Labs

The Faculty Development Center continues to offer webinars for faculty who plan to use the new Canvas-powered WorldClassRoom (formerly Blackboard). We invite faculty members who would like an orientation to enhancing their class with these new and easy-to-use tools to attend one on these webinar offerings in the month of June. (Note: Faculty members teaching fully online classes are being trained by the Online Learning Center.)

WorldClassRoom: Get Your Class Organized

This webinar will cover all of the essential items you will need to know to get your web-enhanced class ready for the beginning of the semester, including sharing your syllabus, using the calendar to highlight important dates, and making course materials available. While this webinar welcomes newcomers to web-enhancement, it should be of particular interest to faculty members who routinely used Blackboard’s Syllabus tool, Calendar and File Manager.

  • Monday, June 3, 10 – 11 a.m. CDT
  • Thursday, June 13, 4 – 5 p.m. CDT
  • Monday, June 17, 10 – 11 a.m. CDT
  • Thursday, June 27, 4 – 5 p.m. CDT

WorldClassRoom: Assignments

This webinar will cover what faculty needs to know to create, collect and grade assignments. Tools discussed include the new SpeedGrader, TurnItIn integration and WorldClassRoom’s new grade book. This webinar will be of interest to faculty members who routinely used Blackboard’s Assignments tool, TurnItIn and Grade Book.

  • Thursday, June 6, 4 – 5 p.m. CDT
  • Monday, June 10, 10 – 11 a.m. CDT
  • Thursday, June 20, 4 – 5 p.m. CDT
  • Tuesday, June 25, 10 – 11 a.m. CDT
