Adobe Connect

Adobe Connect is an online meeting tool where faculty and students can engage in synchronous collaboration using text, audio, and video. Participants in online meetings can also share applications and a whiteboard during the meeting. This is a two part series that must be taken in sequence.

(1) In the "Basics Workshop" participants will learn the "basics" of using the online meeting interface.

(2) In the "Beyond the Basics Workshop" participants will explore and practice using the many "beyond basics" features and tools as they relate to content presentation, student presentation, collaboration, document sharing, small group work, recordings, and more.

To accommodate recent demand, a new series has been added.  Seats are filling up fast!

A New Community for ODU Teachers of Online Courses

During the past year, several online teachers have asked if there is a group of online teachers at ODU who get together to talk about online teaching.  CLT would like to help you, the faculty, support such a group.   

As an online teacher, you know that there’s value in sharing ideas – both online and face-to-face.   At this organizational meeting the floor will be open for ideas about how to proceed, particularly for Spring 2013.  This may include, but not be limited to, how to build the community, how frequently to meet, options for communicating between meetings, etc., and identifying the best way that CLT can support you.

DATE: Tuesday 11/13

TIME: 12:30pm-1:30pm

LOCATION: Gornto 422 (or join us remotely)

Refreshments will be served.

RSVP:  Susan Boze (sboze@odu.edu or 683-3172) 
When you RSVP, please indicate whether you will be joining us on Campus in Gornto 422 or if you need directions for joining the meeting remotely via computer.

and will offer an opportunity to learn the basics of organization management, including enrollments, content, and assessment.
