ISWO FEB-2014 Welcome


Published on

These slides are used for the Instructional Skills Workshop Online for the week 1 welcome session. The session is meant as a way for participants to become acquainted and familiar with the course. Also, we build in some Blackboard Collaborate interactive activities so everyone can get comfortable with the synchronous environment. This particular session was on Valentine's Day, hence the funky cover :-)
