Current Online Instructors
The Online Faculty Information Center is a repository of resources designed to assist in the delivery of quality online courses and a communal area for requesting and providing assistance to technical and pedagogical issues in online courses. Below you will find a list of available resources:
CALENDAR OF IMPORTANT DATES
Do you have trouble remembering when your course must be completed? The calendar provides reminders as to when your Master Course is due (Course Mentors only), when you have access to your course section, when students have access to the course and grade deadlines.
Have you noticed a new course tool such as the "Writing Assistance" link in your course? The announcements posted in the Faculty Information Center will provide valuable information about system maintenance and outages, system enhancements/updates and other changes that may affect your course?
Is it 2 o'clock in the morning the day that grades are due and you can't remember how to add a new column to your gradebook? The Faculty Information Center has an area devoted to training. Tutorials and manuals are available to walk you through many Blackboard Vista topics.
Were you unable to attend the Online Faculty Conference? The Online Learning Center held a recent conference with the theme "Reflect, Rethink, Renew" to promote the enhancement of online instruction. The conference archives will enable you to view many of the conference sessions. Audio, video and other helpful materials are available for your viewing.
Do you need help and can't quite figure out whom to ask? Check the Faculty Information Center for valuable tips, tricks and discussions or post your own question to the discussion forums. Questions posted in the discussions are answered in a timely manner.
Available to all online faculty, just log onto the WorldClassRoom. If you don't see it in your course list, contact the Online Learning Center.
