OTTL Announces Virtual Sessions and New Resources

OTTL announces the virtual workshops and meet-ups for faculty for this week: 

Faculty Online Meet-ups | Join your faculty colleagues and OTTL staff to get your questions answered, share solutions, discuss ideas for teaching strategies or managing your online classes, or just share how things are going for you in this new teaching environment.

Monitoring Student Engagement in D2L | We will review the components of the Course Progress Tool, learn how to interpret the data provided and use it to to support student engagement. We'll also cover tips and strategies to enhance student participation and connect with "lost learners."

Managing Multiple Sections in Panopto and D2L | Many instructors teach more than one section of the same course and want to easily get material they put in one section into the other. This session will review how to use the My Folder in Panopto to get your recordings in multiple sections as well as how to easily copy material between sections in D2L, along with other tips to make life easier in multiple sections.

In addition, we have added new resources to the Online Teaching Contingency Plan website to help faculty locate content within academic disciplines. Take a look at the Content and Instructional Resources page if you are in need of materials to add to your course, replacements for labs, etc. If you have found a good resource and want to share it with others, please send it to us and we’ll post it.

We hope to see you at this week’s sessions!
