Ed Said, Educational Technology’s Fall 2013 newsletter is now available. The past several months have resulted in a number of changes in the services and support offered by Educational Technology. At the very least, the following services have been upgraded or added over the summer:
Blackboard – New “inline grading” feature.
TurningPoint – Unified interface that integrates PowerPoint Polling, Anywhere Polling, and Self-Paced Polling.
Kaltura – Upload streaming media files into Blackboard.
The newsletter also discusses the effective use of blogs in a course, additional student-focused resources that can be added to a Blackboard course, tips for managing online discussions, and more.
