Getting Started with Blackboard: Blackboard is an online tool that lets you deliver course materials, collect assignments, administer online quizzes, and much more. You will learn how to navigate Blackboard, add course materials, and organize content.
Blackboard Assessments and Grade Center: Explore some of Blackboard's more advanced features, including grading, creating assignments, and using forums and chat. Trainings for this are designed for people who are already using Blackboard.
Turnitin is plagiarism detection software that scans student work for matched text by comparing the work to a large database of student work, publications, and materials on the Internet. Turnitin sessions will cover creating a Turnitin assignment, viewing student work in Turnitin, and grading a Turnitin assignment.
Web Conferencing in the Classroom: Cornell hosts several tools that can provide on-demand collaborative web meetings and conferencing. Faculty and staff can use web conferencing tools to hold class online, present webinars, and provide online office hours. Other features include: sharing your desktop, PowerPoint presentations, videos, images, chat, whiteboard, and the ability to share recordings.
Classroom Technologies: This training aims to give the Cornell community a broad awareness of classroom technologies that may be in use around campus. We will demonstrate general hardware and software tools and discuss topics such as wireless presentation via Mersive Solstice or tablet computers, remote lectures made possible by web conferencing tools, app sharing with students, ways to use technology to increase audience engagement, remote collaboration, and A/V touch panels in classrooms.
Flipping the Class with Panopto: Recording class lectures with Panopto and posting them in your Blackboard course allows students to revisit core concepts repeatedly outside of class, while opening up space in your course for conversations and activities that enrich learning objectives. Recorded lectures can be used across several sections or semesters. Learn how Panopto works and get ideas for effective implementation at this hands-on workshop.
i>clicker: Classroom Polling: Classroom Polling allows instructors to quickly ask a question and instantly receive responses from each student during class. In this session, participants will learn how to use the i>clicker program and connect to their Blackboard course for student roster access. This working session is for instructors new to i>clicker as well as those who have previously used i>clicker and are looking to set up their course again. The latest version of i>clicker will be provided, along with the hardware needed to bring to the classroom to collect student clicker response.
