Technology is making it possible for engaged instructors to expand teaching and learning in dynamic ways.  Courses like the one described by Sarah Vigmostad require:  

1. A lecture capture/streaming video solution for recording lectures and also making them available online for students.

  • ​​​Panopto (UICapture) digitally records audio, video, or screen content and makes it available to students as either downloadable or streaming recordings.  Visit the ITS UICapture information center for support, FAQs, and Best Practices. 
  • Sharestream allows instructors to upload, tag, and view existing video and audio files in and outside of ICON as downloadable or streaming recordings.  Visit the ITS ShareStream information center for support, tutorial videos, and Best Practices.

2. A drawing software solution for creating content with a simple stylus pen and computer tablet.

3. A distance web conferencing solution for classes that meet online.

  • Blackboard Collaborate is a virtual classroom space that supports instant messaging, application sharing, breakout rooms, and more.  Visit the ITS Blackboard Collaborate information center for support.
  • Adobe Connect offers a dynamic virtual classroom space.  The Division of Continuing Education has also produced a short video clip demonstrating how instructors can use the many features of Adobe Connect.  Visit the Guide to Adobe Connect Virtual Classroom from the Division of Continuing Education for step-by-step instructions and support.
