Event Description

The Online Learning Council invites all faculty, graduate students and staff to attend its Town Hall II: UPick event. You'll learn tips for online course design and explore cool new technologies, effective means of boosting online student engagement, tools for accessibility and more.

Subjects covered include:

  • Blackboard Ally (a tool making your online course components compliant for accessibility)
  • VRtifacts+ (an open repository of over 500,000 augmented learning objects, seamlessly incorporated into BbL and already available for your use
  • Interactive quizzes, possibilities for gamification, and building and curating expert videoed interviews for your courses, among others

The UPick Town Hall is a crowd favorite. Presenters sit at tables dispersed around the room and attendees circulate among the tables every 15 minutes.  Attendees gain a LOT in a short time, as the presenters share new tools and technology applications of technology, or a project in which they are engaged.

Visit the OLC's INSPIRE site for a full list of presenters.
