CTLA Event Descriptions
The workshop should appeal to novices and more seasoned faculty alike who are looking for assistance with designing a quality online course or those who may be interested in becoming Peer Reviewers. Throughout the workshop emphasis is placed on the QM Program being an open, collegial, collaborative, continuous, and centered approach to a quality course design. The standards are created by faculty for faculty. QM strives to assist faculty in going beyond “good enough” in their course design.
At the completion of this workshop, you should be able to:
In this workshop we will work on your Canvas course using the Template. This hands-on workshop will prepare you for teaching this fall. Please bring your course information and due dates for graded items. (Tentative dates are fine.)
In this workshop we will create pages, manage course content and materials using the Modules and Pages tools in Canvas. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with creating pages as well as creating and managing modules. The workshop is beneficial for both online and in-class instructors who are looking for better ways to present in-class material rather than using PowerPoint. Class presentations/materials are then saved with the course (making them easier to find), easier to export to the next semester, and additionally provide students with notes for review. This course is one of the required classes in the Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
In this workshop we will explore the basic use of the Quizzes tool in Canvas. Create simple quizzes, look at Quiz settings and how to moderate Quizzes. This course is designed to introduce instructors to the Canvas Quizzing tool.
In this workshop we will explore the use of SpeedGrader in various types of Canvas assignments and the DocViewer tool to grade online documents. This course is designed to give instructors who already have some knowledge of Canvas a more in-depth hands on experience with grading options.
Are you interested in creating and managing online surveys? Qualtrics is a great tool for online forms, event registrations, feedback surveys, academic research and more. This hands-on session will provide an overview of creating and managing basic surveys in the Qualtrics platform.
We will cover the following topics:
With Kaltura, instructors can upload media and record their screen or webcam. Kaltura can be used to narrate PowerPoint slides. Kaltura is integrated into Canvas. Captioning and transcript features are now integrated into Kaltura. The captioning service allows faculty and staff to order captions and transcripts for media uploaded into Kaltura. You will learn how to use Kaltura CaptureSpace and how to edit closed captions. This course is a prerequisite for Kaltura: Quizzes.
Increase the effectiveness of education and training by including questions and solutions in the video experience. Online video quizzing increases active viewing, enables measurement, and provides a new way to improve learning outcomes. It also offers a way to make any video more engaging and accountable. Prerequisite: Kaltura: Personal Capture & Closed Captioning
Experience an online class in Canvas from a student perspective when you take this four-week workshop to guide you through course development for an online course. It is also useful for faculty planning or revising hybrid courses. Participants will work on a specific course, selected by them, during the workshop, making course level decisions and working on developing one module, or short segment, of the course. Weekly workshop assignments are due. This workshop does not result in a fully-developed online course but gets you started. The workshop includes reading two books from the Jossey-Bass Guides to Online Teaching, which will be purchased for you. Past participants have estimated the class taking them about 3-7 hours per week. This course is one of the required classes in the Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
This Qualtrics workshop will provide an overview of data analysis and reports. Data analysis topics will include response filtering, editing and exporting. Reports topics will include creating, editing, and sharing reports.
For this workshop to be beneficial, you need to have a basic understanding of the Qualtrics platform, having some experience with surveys and data sets.
This workshop is an introduction to Quick Check. Quick Check is a tool for creating inline assessments in Canvas, allowing instructors to integrate frequent low-stakes assessments into their courses. Providing a mix of higher and lower stakes assessments can help instructors get to know students' work, create multiple opportunities for feedback, and deter cheating.
This workshop will focus on reasons why accessibility for students with disabilities is important, principles of Universal Design of Learning that can be used to result in a more inclusive online learning environment for all students, and practical tips on making instructional materials more accessible using common software (like Office). The workshop is taught totally online in Canvas using web resources. Faculty will experience this Canvas experience from a student perspective. It is recommended for faculty who create/revise online or blended courses or are considering doing so. Faculty who use online resources or create instructional materials as supplementary learning as part of classroom courses can also benefit. This course is required for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate.
Use VoiceThread to communicate, collaborate, and connect with your students. VoiceThread can be used in Canvas as a tool for student discussion, narrating PowerPoints, or allowing students comment on your slides using microphone, webcam, text, phone, and audio-file upload. Upload, share and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files and videos. Over 50 different types of media can be used in a VoiceThread.
Zoom is our web collaboration tool available to all IU students, faculty, and staff. Zoom provides high-quality audio and video and integrates into Canvas as an external tool. Anyone who has the meeting URL can attend a Zoom meeting even if they aren’t affiliated with IU; however, only those in the IU community can create Zoom accounts and schedule meetings. In this session you will learn the basics about Zoom and how to set up Office Hours for your online students using Zoom.
