Tech Tools for Online Students

To develop and lead an effective online course requires a lot of technical know-how. Instructors often spend a lot of time contemplating and utilizing a diverse array of software and hardware solutions to build and interact with their courses. However, several instructors do not take student access to technology into account until problems arise. During this one hour workshop, online instructors will be given information about many free and inexpensive software resources which they can share with their students. These applications and services are shared in order that students may be given a means to complete their online coursework effectively. See dates and register for this workshop...
