Development Session Descriptions

Multimedia in Blackboard Courses: This fully-online certification course provides the Blackboard instructor with the knowledge and skills in both the acquisition and implementation of multimedia for online/face-to-face and hybrid courses. Technologies and best practices are examined in the context of student engagement and success.

Participants can choose to complete all module activities for this course and receive a Multimedia Certification or just complete any of the modules that interests them, a la carte.

Blackboard Learn: 1st Week Strategies: Studies have shown that the first week of an online course is key for your students. The activities and interactions that take place in that first week can influence the rest of the semester. There are strategies that you can employ that ensure that the start of your course will promote a successful learning journey for you and your students. This one-hour session will outline activities, ideas and strategies you can use during the first week of your course.

ProctorFree – Online Proctoring for Blackboard Exams: This one hour session covers how to use ProctorFree for your online exams & quizzes in Blackboard. ProctorFree is an on-demand, automated online proctoring service that deters cheating in an online testing environment. Using bio-metric and machine learning technologies, ProctorFree has eliminated the need for a human proctor during testing. This innovative technology creates a convenient testing option for distance education students and increases the credibility of online certificates and degrees for higher education institutions.

Kaltura – Lecture Capture in Blackboard: Adding video to our Blackboard course just became easier!  This 60-90 minute session covers how to add video to your Blackboard course using the Kaltura Mashup tool.  Attendees will learn how to record and upload video from their webcam as well as capture what is on their own computer screen (PowerPoints etc.).
