This is your chance to turn your curiosity about Facebook into actual, detailed knowledge. By the end of the workshop you will not only be up and running on Facebook, you will also understand why you need to be there. Facebook for personal and business use, and privacy issues, will be primary topics.
Haven’t tried Blackboard Collaborate yet? It’s an amazing way to communicate real-time with your students online. Think of the possibilities—online office hours, study sessions, class meetings…You can chat (type), speak with audio to the class, use a webcam to transmit your video to the group, show a PowerPoint, webpage, video, draw together on a whiteboard… You can also record the whole session with just a click, and paste the link to the recording in your online Canvas course for students who missed the session or for students who would like to review it. We will discuss:
- Creating a session
- Session settings
- Optional components such as microphones, headsets, webcams, digital stylus/tablet
- Browser security settings and other issues when connecting to a session
- Hand raising and using emoticons for feedback and engagement
- Polling; responding to a poll question
- Using the whiteboard inside your session
- Presenting a slideshow
- Adjusting your audio and video settings
- Desktop and application sharing, leading a webtour
- Recording a session for students to view later
- Online tutorials and resources to teach participants how to use Collaborate
- Possible uses for teaching, lecture capture, conferences, office hours…

Imagine this scenario: a student comes to you and says, “My text book is on back order and won’t be here until next week. May I borrow yours and copy the chapter you just assigned to read?” What is your response? Is this simple request a violation of copyright laws? Is this covered under fair use? Do you give your student the book, wondering whether the student might be breaking copyright laws?
Come to this live one hour webinar to find out the answer to this question and more! In this webinar we will cover CMC copyright policy, copyright laws, fair use, and DMRC.
This webinar will be held via a Collaborate web conference. The link to join the webinar will be sent via email to registered participants; you can also contact the webinar’s instructor for the link.
Visit this webpage ahead of time to check your browser and ensure sure it’s ready for use with Blackboard Collaborate webconferencing. If you are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate, then we suggest that you watch this 7-minute Participant Orientation tutorial video.

You tweet therefore you are-or not. Twitter is, in fact, the most misunderstood social media on the planet, so this workshop will focus on the why and how of followers, following, and hashtags. The goal is to turn Twitter into a must-have daily tool for you, regardless of your goals and/or your business. Completion of the Social Media I and Social Media II workshops in January is highly recommended, but not required.
Senior (62+) scholarships available for this class.
