Sharing Our Way Through Times of Change!
February 22 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am
This event was part of our CCC Digital Learning Day program.
Jodie Steeley, Director of Distance Education & Instructional Technology, Fresno City College
Fresno City College implemented a check-list to encourage professors to apply ACCJC compliance standards and engage them in the discussion of online course design and pedagogy. Using a checklist authored by Fabiola Torres from Glendale Community College, faculty at FCC where challenged to complete the checklist and submit their compliance based courses into a drawing for Amazon Dots that link Canvas and Alexa. With a 40% submission rate and 70% of faculty attending available workshops, one-on-one, and drop-in sessions, student engagement and accessibility became popular topics for collegial interactions among faculty and distance education staff.
James Theall, Computer Information Systems (CIS) Professor, College of the Desert
As a web design instructor, I believe engaging content can make for more engaged readers and students. In this session, I will share how a new layout, a well-placed line, box or splash of color can transform a boring page into an engaging course content page or assignment. When I began teaching in Fall, 2016, I had the opportunity to create a new course shell in Canvas for a beginner’s computer literacy course. In the process, I explored every tool at my disposal and dove in to creating content pages with the ‘limited’ Rich Text Editor and the even more limited HTML editor. Wanting to share what I had learned, I created a compendium of reusable snippets and interactive HTML tag anatomy breakdowns to share with my peers who wanted to know “How did you do THAT!?”
