UTC Learn/ UTC Learn Training
UTC Learn powered by Blackboard is UTC's Learning Management System that faculty use to deliver course content, communicate with students, enable student interaction, and provide online assignments and assessments. UTC Learn training prepares faculty to utilize UTC Learn in their courses and organizations.
Lecture Capture with Screencast Training:
Use Camtasia, Captivate, Mediasite or Screencast to capture your lectures for online delivery from the comfort of your own office. Prepare step-by-step instructions with video and audio commentary.
Mediasite is a lecture capture technology developed by Sonic Foundry that records video and audio of the instructor and syncs it with the integrated software used in the class. The presentation is archived and available to watch at any time streamed from a secure server. This service allows students to take classes from a distance or allows the instructor to pre-record a lecture that they know they will miss and not have to make up any class time.
Video conferencing is a productive way to communicate with colleagues and deliver classes. Video communication is constantly improving and UTC's newest solution is Zoom Cloud Meetings. We have three rooms that are equipped for site-to-site IP based videoconferencing almost anywhere in the world. They are ideal for providing distance classroom instruction, performing interviews, and group training in multiple locations.
Another valuable teaching resource that is available through the UTC Learn Online is the Adobe Connect conferencing tool. This web conferencing software allows for synchronous online meetings and classes. Give us a call to find out more.
