Hands-On Practice & Training for New Classroom Technology

As we prepare our environment to interact with our students under the new normal, the Information Technology department has been tirelessly working to install and upgrade our classroom infrastructure with the technology approved by the faculty-driven task force in record time. The primary addition will be the ability to record your live classroom session via lecture capture technology and to engage with remote students via web-conferencing. Please press here to open a detailed chart that reviews your new options.

The best way to familiarize yourself with the new technology and provide an optimal experience for your students is by participating in one of the hands-on practice sessions that OOLET will start offering daily starting Monday, Aug. 3! Please stop by any time listed for a demo and practice time. We are offering the following options each day listed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. These are designed to be drop-in sessions, so there is no need to RSVP.

  • Monday, Aug. 3, in the Lynn Business Center, Room 044
  • Tuesday, Aug. 4, in Sage Hall, Room 257
  • Wednesday, Aug. 5, in Flagler Hall, Room 201
  • Thursday, Aug. 6, in Davis Hall, Room 204
  • Friday, Aug. 7, in Elizabeth Hall, Room 204

If you would like to have a virtual demo in any of these rooms, please email us with the location, and we will send you a link.

In addition to these sessions, OOLET is continuing to offer our weekly virtual Q & As (now streamed live from LBC 044), so also feel free to attend any of these drop-in sessions for a hands-on demo with our new classroom technology.

Weekly Virtual Q & A Schedule 

  • Tuesdays from 10 – 11 a.m.
  • Fridays from 12 – 1 p.m.

For virtual attendees, use this link to access any session during its scheduled time.

Although we believe that interacting with your peers during demos is the best way to discover tips and learn from each other’s experiences, you can also request individual training by sending an email to OOLET. We are available to attend department meetings, staff meetings, etc., at the location of your choice to provide a demonstration and provide a Q & A session for your group.

And, as always, feel free to contact us directly with any questions or concerns. Let’s work together to deliver the best experience to our students during these challenging times. We are happy to help!
