RRU’s three tiered model for Collaborate Moderator training models the geo-caching.com spirit of ‘Browse, Discover, Share’. Our faculty can browse self-help training materials and recorded Collaborate examples that we have organized into Level 1 training focused on what Collaborate looks like and how it works from a participant’s perspective. In Level 2 training, they discover how basic moderator functions work, again in a work-at-your-own-pace manner through activities we have organized to support their learning.

Level 3 training is synchronous, occurs in Collaborate and involves two sessions – the first asks participants to put what they have learned about moderator tools into practice and to both ask for and offer help in a Collaborate session where each participant performs moderator tasks within an authentic training session. So each person is discovering what they don’t know as well as sharing what they do know. In preparation for the second session in Level 3 training each participant designs and develops a 10-minute Collaborate session. During the synchronous session each participant loads their materials, takes charge of the group and facilitates the interactive session they have designed. Immediately following, participants and training facilitators offer feedback and suggestions for enhancements. Everyone sees new ideas and expands their repertoires of strategies for successful Collaborate sessions.

This ETUG session will share the training materials for all three levels (available on myRRU) as well as invite participants to participate in demonstrations of selected activities. Of course, we will want to hear what the audience is doing with regard to Collaborate training so there is sharing all around.

  • Tell ‘em what we’re going to tell them.
  • Institutional interest in synchronous technologies (talk of alternatives to residency among other things)BC Campus Shared services. Interest from many different areas/stakeholders on campus Different visions of what the technology could do (or not) - Because the tool was available to everyone there was a Need for training The idea of training everyone was a huge task Different needs for different groups – teaching/recruiting/orientation/meetings
  • So why not just send them to the blackboard training site – there are lots of awesome resources there? Exactly, there are so many training materials that simply pointing people to Blackboard help was overwhelming. They needed help navigating the resources and just in time solutions.
  • Apart from just knowing ‘how’ to use it, we also wanted to provide some guidance on ‘why’ you would use Collaborate or the different tools available within it. Different areas on campus had different needs and we wanted to arm them with the right set of tools for their tasks.
  • Anyone could get access but not everyone took the time to learn how to use it. Many early adopters didn’t know how to run a session, use the tools or understand what equipment they’d need to optimize the experience. If they don’t know they need a headset – they can have a bad experience with feedback – if they don’t have java updated – they’ll think Collaborate ‘just doesn’t work’, etcetera
  • Whether you want to be a collaborate participant or a master moderator, there are training materials for each level. The training emphasizes the importance of testing your system, checking for updates, testing your audio with the wizard – all things that will help catch problems before the start of a session.
  • enough tools in level 2 to run an engaging session. We set the expectations of how much time things will take
  • Ready for Level 3 when …
  • Here is a quick run through of some of the slides we use in our level 3 training
  • Always have the audio set up wizard reminder
  • Terri: ~10 min(~1min per person = about 5-6 min) – facilitatesIf they have a webcam AND know how to use it, they could use it during their intro and then turn it off.15-second spot (think of commercials)Transition to next slide re: ESP…..ask: new mods: have a look at ESP indicators – what do you see? (I’m talking, mic lit up, stop Meta moment: you might like to start your session with videotalking, it stops)
  • Beth (3 Min)Get them to respond to the questionsWhy do this:Meta: here is where I usually do a poll/run thru of tools – what I’m really doing: pre-assessment Ensure participants know what tools they have/how they can express themselvesGet them doing stuff early in the session = start how you plan to continue (with them participating)…….Point out: you might like to use a slide like this – good to get people going/using the tools + pre-assess (remember: you know this stuff, your participants may not). *here is where the moderating hand off thing begins*Beth asks first question, then hands off to new mod*New mod: publish results of the poll, then clear the results, then make someone else a moderator
  • Terri And maybe change the show poll results to moderators only
  • Should be 20 min in nowTerri (3-4 min) Note: debrief the intro – why do this?Got everyone in the room – technically and “personally” (checked in on all channels of communication)Note the time – it takes some time to start building community. Talk about giving participants some responsibility, not just sitting there (don’t want people checking out)This is also modeling the 5 senses stuffOther person possibly captures ideas on boardAsk: What would you do with a huge group? Poll + text chat? (Mention backup person here again if necessary – how can you scale it to a larger audience?)
  • Beth (2 min)Everyone draws a line, with highlighter or line or whatever, as to where they fall on the spectrum. Talk briefly about results.Can right click on lines to see who drew it – ask them about their opinion. Can use this in a lot of ways – eg. Preconceived ideas at start of session, or a way to find out where everyone is in a topic so that you don`t tell them stuff they already know.

  • Terri (3 min)Put your name in the grid, or some other icon Why we do this: Show alternate way (grid) to use whiteboard, Sign up for topics?*point out: you can look into these before next session, see partners/others with same interests!!*new mod task: get them to keep it tidy

  • Beth: (2) Think about your experiences in learning environmentsCircle GREEN for the pic that represents the most positive kind of learning environment for youCircle RED for the pic that represents the most negative kind of learning environment for you… and then talk about choices.*New Mod: erase all objects and advance to next slideExample of course related use

  • Terri… 3 min Prepare PowerPoint slides, if appropriate to support your activity (they may have text, images, or shapes on them - be creative!)You may like to use "real" content from your teaching, or it can be "for fun" to accomplish the activity (perhaps about a hobby or outside interest?)Aim to make it as active for the participants as possible - i.e., you're not allowed to lecture with slides for 10 - 15 minutes while we listen :)don't try to do too much - 10-15 minutes goes by awfully fast!Beth pushing forms while Terri blabs
