Save Time Converting to Google Docs

Time is a precious commodity. Google Docs has saved me countless hours. With Google Docs, I am able to get to all of my files regardless of where I am in the world. I am not restricted to a single location to work on a file. With shared links to Google Docs, I can make a change that is immediately seen by everyone with access to the file. This eliminates wasted time in redistributing files that have been changed. Let me share two quick tips that will help you save even more time as you transfer your content to Google Docs.

TEI Workshop – How to Control When Blackboard Content is Made Available to Your Students

TEI Workshop - How to Control When Blackboard Content is Made Available to Your Students

Do you give a pretest for your course and want to prevent student accessing course content until they complete the pretest? Do you want to make supplemental materials available to students who did poorly on an exam? If so, you should learn about adaptive release in Blackboard. Adaptive Release allows you to control the release of content to students based on a rule or rules that you create. You may want to delay revealing content for a student until after the student has achieved a certain score on a particular assessment or until after the student has accessed or viewed another piece of content. Content can also be restricted to specific students. Adaptive release is a powerful tool for creating standalone courses. It can also be used in conjunction with achievements and badges. Topics we will cover include:

  • Share ideas for using adaptive release in your course
  • Create rule for restricting the viewing of an assignment after a specific date
  • Create rule to restricting the viewing of content until passing a quiz
  • Create rule to restricting the viewing of content based on review status restrictions
  • Copy rules
  • Delete rules

Location: HULT 154 (AV center) and LLAC 317 (If you are on the Dunkirk campus and would like to participate, please let me know so that I can make room and connection arrangements.)
