coffeebreakInstructional Technology Faculty Survey Results
Thanks to the 76 faculty who completed the annual instructional technology survey! The most-requested topics for training are Moodle and designing and facilitating online courses. The preferred format for training is how-to videos, followed closely by webinars and group workshops. Most faculty consistently incorporate relevant technologies in teaching and most incorporated at least one new teaching/learning strategy as a result of training last year. Congratulations! Let's do that again this year! Complete survey results are posted here.


coffeebreakAUCloud Workshop Offered
AUCloud was one of the most-requested topics for staff training. Kim McMurtry, instructional technologist, is offering a one-hour, hands-on workshop at 11:15 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 3. AUCloud is Averett's secure cloud storage and allows users to save files there to access via the web from anywhere or to share with other employees. You'll learn to create folders and upload and share files. To see the complete schedule of workshops and register click here.
