“Tech Tune-ups and Tips” Starts Tuesday

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

Tech Tune-ups & Tips every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 am. Come Zoom with the E-learning Team as they offer two 60-minute sessions each week on how to maximize your use of Moodle and learning technologies as you get ready for classes this Fall. Each session will open with 15-minutes of “pertinent tips & best practices” about important Moodle features/resources. The final 45 minutes will provide training on a specific learning experience or tool.

Tuesday, 6/23 at 10–Templates & New Modalities: With all of the changes currently in the works, now might be a good time to think about reworking your Moodle courses to take advantage of some of the new design features available. The first 15-20 minutes will introduce you to some new Moodle template options including a Grid format. The rest of the hour will offer a deeper dive into the new Live and Online Modalities and provide time for Q&A.

Thursday, 6/25 at 10—Instructor/Student Support & New Integrated VoiceThread: The new modalities mean students (and instructors) will need a lot of technical support. The first 15 minutes will review resources that assist instructors, as well as those created specifically for students. The rest of the hour will introduce the new VoiceThread LTI integration in Moodle that allows instructors to assess student completion and comprehension of VoiceThread recordings.
