Reminder! Training Dates: Respondus LockDown Browser, Collaborate Ultra, Ensemble Video & Blackboard 101

Dear Stetson Faculty,

This is a friendly reminder that the Office of Online Learning and EdTech (OOLET) is offering training for our newest technologies: Respondus LockDown Browser, Ensemble Video and Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. We are also offering Blackboard 101, a session designed to review Blackboard Basics for new users or those in need of a refresher.

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. Students are unable to copy, print, access other applications or visit other websites during an online exam.

Ensemble Video, Stetson’s video management system, is an online videoplatform that streamlines video capture, management and publishing. Press here for Stetson-specific Ensemble information that includes instructions and training documentation.

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra is a real-time video conferencing tool that lets you add files, share applications, and use a virtual whiteboard to interact. Collaborate with the Ultra experience opens right in your browser, so you don’t have to install any software to join a session.
