On Friday, February 16, Blackboard will perform a firmware upgrade. This maintenance will take place between 1am-5am CST (early morning).

To graduate, students must complete courses that involve substantial writing for a total of 24,000 words. All sections of qualified courses may not offer substantial writing in a particular term. Courses that count toward this requirement will be in one of three categories:
Activating the Course Reserves link in Canvas automatically creates a course in Ares. If you have a previous course and have listings in Ares that you need to transfer to a new course shell, or if you experience any other problems, contact the Course Reserves Unit at 352-273-2520, or via email at email@example.com.
Please make every effort to provide your section number(s). While we can create a course shell without a section number, it will have to be associated with a section number at some point if there are going to be students enrolled in the course. If you do not have a section number, use 9999 for the section number until you find it. Then you will have to fill out the request form again to have the section associated with your course.

Radio offers a synchronous educational vehicle, while streaming audio over the internet with webcasts and podcasts can be asynchronous. Classroom microphones, often wireless, can enable learners and educators to interact more clearly.
Then the organization started hiring contractors to update their existing eLearning courses, so they’d match the new guidelines. And eLearning often gets grouped under “web” guidelines. How Web and eLearning Guidelines are Different. eLearning Style Guide Considerations. MORE
With the Internet and social media, using educational apps makes the students highly susceptible to distraction and sidetracking. Even though proper use has shown to increase student performances, being distracted would be detrimental. Another disadvantage is increased potential for cheating. Smartphones can be very easy to hide and use inconspicuously, especially if their use is normalized in the classroom. These disadvantages can be managed with strict rules and regulations on mobile phone use.
For a while now there has been ‘chat’ about social learning as an approach to workplace L&D.

Gatorlink: Please enter the Gatorlink ID of the Instructor. If you are completing the form on behalf of the Instructor, be sure to put the Instructor’s Gatorlink ID in this field.

You will be added to the course manually by us so you will not have access until this is done, but the Instructor will have access immediately once the course is created and they can add you at that time.
