ITS is aware that a link was broken in yesterdays announcement to sign up for the Flexible Learning Classroom Demo's. The link has been fixed and we encourage you to try and sign up again if you previously had an issue.
In order to accommodate as many faculty as possible before the beginning of the semester, ITS has adjusted the number of faculty per session for the August 2020 Flexible Classroom Demo. Please review the below information for updates on the training:
We have expanded the number of participants in each training from 3 up to the maximum covid amount allowed in the classroom (between 14 and 17 depending on the room). If you were unable to sign up for a session previously because it was booked, you may want to go back and double check to see if your time slot is now available.
With the increase of attendees, we will no longer have the opportunity to test the tech during the training. If you would like to test out the tech, other classrooms have been reserved for faculty to go to after their training to try it out on their own.
This will not be supported by the members of IT present for the training. If faculty run into an issue while testing out their tech on their own, they will need to submit a ticket to ITS and they will get back to you as soon as possible.
The training being offered in August will follow a workshop model with limited time for questions at the end of the demonstration. Any other questions can be followed up with after the training.
August 17th- August 20th (Monday to Thursday)
August 24th, 26th, and 27th (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday)
During the session you will be able to see a demonstration of the technologies that will be provided in the classrooms for flexible learning purposes as well as the opportunity and space to test it out on your own. These technologies include an IPEVO Document Camera and a Google speakermic. These sessions will be by appointment only on a first come, first serve basis, but the capacity has been increased to allow for more faculty to sign up at a time (14-17 people depending on the room).
We are encouraging members of the community who use their own devices during teaching to bring them and test them out with the tech independently, after the training. A set of rooms have been reserved for faculty to use after their workshop. This allows you to see how the technology will work with your device before classes begin. Should you choose to bring your own device please make sure that you have downloaded the free software that accompanies the Document Camera: IPEVO Visualizer Software. We recommend that you select the Windows 7 and above download option.
