Jing Screen Capture
Oct 20 – Oct 21 all-day

Join us and learn Jing! The free Jing software from Techsmith does 3 things that are really useful:

  • It captures what you see on your computer as an image you can label with arrows, text, boxes, and highlighting.
  • It records what is on your computer screen as a video you can easily post online or download and save. This video was made using Jing.
  • Quick and easy sharing of your Jing images and videos with a free Screencast.com account

Jing is a free screen capture software made by TechSmith. Visit TechSmith’s Jing website for more details about Jing.  This training will be held online in Canvas over 2 days in the Fall 2014 semester. After you register for this session in WebAdvisor, log into Canvas later that day or the next morning and you will see the Canvas course listed. Enter the Canvas course and follow the directions. The first day you’ll get oriented and install Jing on your computer; the second day you will practice creating and sharing screencast videos and screenshots.

Estimated completion time for this training is 1 hour. If you have any questions about this course, please contact the instructor, Dr. Gabrielle Orsi, at (970) 947-8359 or via email at gorsi@coloradomtn.edu.

Khan Academy Coach Training
Oct 20 – Oct 24 all-day

Take this workshop and learn how you can use the Khan Academy’s great educational resources! The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit with free online videos and exercises for learning math and other topics. All of the site’s resources are available to anyone. Learners can create a free account to track what videos and lessons they have completed. As an instructor, you can ask your students to list you as their “Coach” in their Khan Academy account. Then you can view charts, graphs, and helpful data to see exactly which videos and exercises each student has completed, what topics they are finding difficult, and what their strengths are. You can use this “Coach” data to modify your upcoming course lectures, since you’ll know exactly how your students are grasping the material and if any topics need to be reviewed as a class. You can also use the data to make recommendations to individual students for additional videos or exercises they should complete, and you can use the built-in tool to recommend exercises. In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Set up a Khan academy account
  • Show your students how to invite you to be their “coach”
  • Navigate the coach interface to mine the data in order to benefit your course and your students’ learning

Find more information on the Khan Academy here.

Dates
This is a fully online, Monday-Friday 5-day training, offered via Canvas, with tasks that need to be completed on certain days. You can complete the daily tasks at any time that day (Monday tasks need to be completed by midnight any time on Monday, Tuesday tasks anytime on Tuesday, etc.) Total completion time is estimated to be approximately 4 hours.
