3 Great Things!

August 2014
Welcome Back!

Welcome back! This issue of 3 Great Things! is packed with great ideas, tips, and information to get you started on the right foot this semester. There are far more than 3 Great Things! Read on...

Great Thing 1: The Distance Education Department has moved to WLC 305- look for the double doors. Same floor, same suite, just a different set of doors. Phone numbers are the same.

Great Thing 2:  Moodle upgrade and new Moodle hosting. There are a few obvious changes- a new theme, icons that look a bit different. If you have any Moodle or online teaching questions, stop in at WLC 305. We'll have Hands-on Moodle Help in WLC 305, on August 18-21 (Monday through Thursday, 9-5). There will be laptops available for you to work on your courses with help on hand to walk you through any issues.

Great Thing 3: Student Moodle Sessions, in WLC 331 (Library computer lab) from 8-9 AM and 3-4 PM on August 18 and 19. Spread the word- students will receive a message about the sessions  before classes start. These sessions were well received last spring- students appreciated the chance to ask their questions directly. We hope to help more students this time.

Great Thing 4: Creating engaging presentations to accompany your lectures is challenging. The writer of this blog shares tons of great tips, templates and assets, check out: http://goo.gl/NMLn1f. Explore all the resources available for great ideas.
