Faculty members may now register for Introduction to eCampus and Blackboard Collaborate workshops through Information Technology Services. The workshops begin Friday, Sept. 12 and run though early November. Details and links to register are here: http://it.wvu.edu/services/training/schedule
These sessions are designed for faculty and staff who have not used eCampus or Collaborate and are unfamiliar with the applications.
Instructors who are familiar with eCampus but want help importing content or creating a class should fill out a request form with the WVUTeaching and Learning Commons iDesign group here: http://idesign.wvu.edu/Project/
Meanwhile, the response to online training offered through Lynda.com has been overwhelming, and ITS has created a waiting list for additional requests.
The online repository has tens of thousands of courses and video tutorials on commercial products such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud and more. Current WVU employees can request temporary, 30-day access, and as many as 30 people may use the account simultaneously.
Students may be granted access when available, but those licenses are only valid for 14 days to ensure the tool remains available for faculty and staff development, and classroom support.
Users must register at lynda.com within 48 hours of getting the e-mail registration notice. Failure to do so will drop the request to the waiting list. Users may apply for access to Lynda as often as they like. Other details about the program are here: http://it.wvu.edu/services/training/lynda
