A Message From Academic Affairs

Libraries, Faculty and the “Google Generation”

Well, we are finally winding down for winter term and many faculty are putting finishing touches on their spring term syllabi.  Towards the end of Finals Week, ITS will be offering a "Getting the Most out of Moodle" session.  Perhaps you have toyed with the idea of using a discussion forum for those classroom discussions that are abruptly ended at the end of the period, or considered creating an online practice quiz for a topic that seems to repeatedly trip up students.  This session will get you started on strategies like these.  Many observed instructional problems can be aided with technology found within Moodle.  Look for more details about this session coming soon.

We also have other technologies that are often useful at either the end-of-term or start-of-term crunch available for faculty use.  Our Multimedia Lab in the F.W. Olin Center can help you scan multiple pages in a snap, create and edit videos, manipulate audio files, create PDF files, scan 35mm slides, or even create a DVD.  I would be happy to work with you to accomplish whatever media-related task you may have before you as you prepare for spring term.  And another end-of-term reminder – the Olin Center is now open 24 hours most days through the end of finals week.  After all, we know it's not just students that burn that midnight oil.
