No notes for slide
  • While you are waiting … you can do the following. If you’re having audio trouble, please let me know, I’ll display the next slide that gives some helpful tips.
  • E. allows us to interact in real time. It’s dynamic. Bb supports our online classes, but it is asynchronous. With technology, E. tries to simulate, as much as possible, an actual classroom.  Incorporates the human voice, an interactive whiteboard, ways to express yourself and give feedback, even a video cam. Also supports web based sharing of info with file and application sharing and web tours 
  • If you’d rather use the keyboard--Ctrl + F2Click once. No need to hold down the button.Karate KidSession is being recorded. Another great feature of E. is that the recording, in it’s entirety, can be accessed later—one advantage over being in a physical classroom. And most professors do record their sessions.
  • Generally the instructor will be using this feature, but it can be useful for group work as in brainstorming for a group project. You can use the tools simultaneously.
  • .txt allows you to view notes outside of E..eln brings them up when you started taking the notes in the live session.
  • Share Word doc.--No Audio docFile Share the same doc.
  • Set the timer.Send an announcement towards the end.
  • Just as in going to a physical classroom, you allow time to find parking, etc., the same with E. to allow time for tech problems and such.I do Audio Wizard every time I log on. It’s a good habit and just takes a few seconds.Hand Raising is “handy” tool for making sure you get the instructor’s attention.Emoticons are a great way to provide feedback to the instructor and your classmates. Use them freely.
