Training sessions now available on WSU’s distance instruction tools

Staff from Academic Outreach and Innovation (AOI) are scheduling virtual and face-to-face trainings to support faculty in adapting their courses to be delivered from a distance. The trainings will be held three times daily, beginning Thursday, March 5.

Participants will learn how to create a Panopto recording, enable Zoom and Blackboard, upload files, embed YouTube videos, add quizzes, and more.

Trainings are scheduled Monday through Friday at 8 a.m., noon and 4 p.m. via Zoom or in Room 102 of the Spark Building on the Pullman campus.

Although academic operations at WSU currently are continuing uninterrupted, with the exception of WSU Everett’s closure until Monday, the training sessions are intended to support the decision by the Provost’s Office to encourage faculty to become familiar with WSU’s remote instructional tools out of an abundance of caution and in the spirit of preparedness.

Faculty from any campus or location are welcome to attend and registration is not required.

In addition, the Tool Kit for Extended Campus Closures provides a variety of suggestions, strategies and links to self-help tutorials.

AOI has a staff of instructional designers and technologists who can support faculty on a one-to-one basis, either virtually or face-to-face when other resources do not fit the need.  We welcome questions from all faculty on all campuses regarding how to use technology to delivery content, assess learning, and connect with students.

If you have questions or would like assistance, please email aoi.li@wsu.edu.
