As the college transitions to online teaching and learning in response to the Covid19 pandemic, the Educational Technology team is available to help you remotely. We will hold short online workshops on a range of online educational technology tools throughout the term in addition to drop-in sessions on popular tools such as Moodle, Zoom, and G-Suite. If there’s a specific topic you’d like to see covered, please let us know.
We also have posted regular appointment hours which will continue for the rest of the term. We are also available to meet outside these times - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our Remote Teaching Consultation Form.
As some may have heard, the phenomenon ‘Zoombombing’ has cropped up in conjunction with the transition from face-to-face classes to remote video conferencing. ‘Zoombombing’ is where uninvited users drop into Zoom meetings, often posting inflammatory content and causing a general disruption. While this has not yet affected our community, it is important to review the simple precautions you can take to minimize the chances of this happening to your courses.
Thursday morning (3/17/2020) a Zoom service disruption impacted a few of our classes. Additionally, Google has reported delays processing videos uploaded to Google Drive due to sudden increased load on their systems. While Zoom and Google are quick to address these issues, it’s important to know where to go for more information when it is needed.
