CTLT has recently reorganized its extensive library of downloadable handouts and tutorial videos covering all aspects of ReggieNet. You’ll find help for setting up assignments, creating assessments, uploading your syllabus, and transferring course content from past semesters to Fall 2020 ReggieNet sites.
This guide to using Zoom in your teaching covers everything from setting up meetings, recording and sharing videos, pre-assigning Breakout Rooms for synchronous group work, preparing polls, and how to find attendance data after class.
You can also browse other software and services which can enhance your students’ experiences this fall, including Flipgrid, Nearpod, Office 365 Video, and much more.
CTLT will hold open office hours using Zoom on August 17, 18, 24, and 25 from 1 to 2 p.m. Instructors are welcome to join these sessions to ask questions about ReggieNet, Zoom, and more. No registration is necessary.
In addition to these online resources, support staff at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Email CTLT@ilstu.edu for assistance.
