Thanks for your interest in Turnitin, the plagiarism detection and deterrent tool available for all CMC instructors via their Canvas courses, accompanied by GradeMark, a suite of markup tools, and PeerMark, for peer review assignments. In this live webinar we will offer information to guide instructors interested in using Turnitin in their Canvas courses. This webinar will also cover best practices for

  • how instructors can create Assignments that connect to Turnitin
  • how to grade student submissions
  • rubrics and Turnitin in Canvas courses
  • the changes from Turnitin to Feedback Studio, which will arrive in January 2017
  • tips for success with Turnitin

Cisco WebEx Mobile App Webinar
Sep 8 @ 5:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Did you know that CMC’s main webconferencing tool, Cisco WebEx, will work on your mobile device, such as your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Blackberry, Android smartphone, Windows Phone 8, or any Wi-Fi or 3G/4G-enabled mobile device? This is a live online web conference, so you will need a mobile device with highspeed internet access. We recommend connecting to wi-fi if possible to avoid using your data plan.

We will try out some of the features and tools available to mobile device users. We will also discuss and explore the differences you should expect when participating in or leading a WebEx web conference via the app on a mobile device versus via a computer. With the WebEx mobile app, participants can join a live web conference for online classes, meetings, one-on-one tutoring, group projects, office hours, and much more.
Prerequisite: installation of the appropriate Cisco WebEx app (Apple/iOS or Android) on your mobile device. Search your app store for the free Cisco WebEx app and install it ahead of time to be ready for our training.

This webinar will be held via a Training Center WebEx web conference; use this session number in your app: 922 322 774.

We do plan on recording this webinar for those unable to attend.
