New to Online: Introduction to Online Presentation Tools

PowerPoint can be useful for many things in our online courses, but it is essentially one-way and does not easily invite continuing engagement, interaction and collective community building. Web-based presentation  alternatives exist that leverage the 2.0 potential to engage learners, build communities, provide full discussion and continuing dialog. In this workshop, you will examine a number of these alternatives and learn how to use them for your own online courses.

New to Online: Converting Your Courses

Converting face-to-face classroom materials for use in an online course can be challenging. Decisions such as what formats to use and when to use synchronous or asynchronous strategies are an important part of course design.  This workshop will help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to determine when to use asynchronous or synchronous methods and how to easily convert different types of content into web-appropriate formats for those methods. This course is developed for those interested in using social media but maintaining professional boundaries for students.
