Working with instructional technology staff, the center hosts lunch-time sessions on the use of Word Press, a web-based design and blogging software; Google Docs, a web-based document sharing application; Moodle, a web-based classroom management tool; as well as audio and video.
“We invite faculty members who have been using a specific technological tool in their class to talk about how it worked for them,” says Courtney Bentley (center), director of instructional technology.
One discussion was led by John Drummond, general biology laboratory coordinator, and Juan Rojo, assistant professor of Spanish. Both were using iMovie in their classes to create multimedia projects. Drummond’s class created movies to explain cell division, while Rojo’s students recorded movie reviews in Spanish with a flip camera, and then edited them.
