Instructional Technology Coordinating Committee

Online, Mobile, and Distance Teaching

Where do I go to get training in using Blackboard? View tutorials and documentation at the Information Technology (IT) Services Instructor Resources for Blackboard Learn Web page. You can register for short courses about Blackboard tools at the ITS Web Training page. You may also call one of the Academic Technology Consultants.

Who can give me examples of what the most effective strategies are for my online teaching? Go to the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) Teaching with Technology page to review designing and teaching online courses, or contact CELT at (260) 481-6354 to arrange an appointment with a consultant.

How do I make sure that my online course materials are accessible (meet Section 508 accessibility standards)? See the Accessibility page.

How can I best use an iPad or other mobile device to support teaching in the classroom? To see ideas from colleagues, here and elsewhere, visit the "App-Ed" page on the Helmke Library Subject Guides Web site or stop by the #mobileEdu site. To discuss your ideas with a CELT consultant, complete a Design & Technology Consultation request form. iPad training is available from ITS.
