Instructor must state in the objectives the required media and how it facilitates the learning objectives.
We recommend any PowerPoint presentations be the instructor’s original material and be accompanied by audio. In addition to this, a full text of the audio is required for students who may be hearing-impaired (Standard 8.2).
When using PowerPoint presentations, the size/length of the presentation should be limited to a reasonable size, such as 15 or fewer slides.
When using publisher materials, the instructor must designate in the course syllabus which media are required or optional. A direct link to the materials must also be provided
When choosing a media for an activity, you can refer to the
Essential Faculty Resources Technology List
to find the appropriate media.
In order to utilize tools and media that support student engagement, the instructor must first research and find the appropriate media for their objective.
We offer face-to-face and on demand workshops that are focused on interactive technologies such as Blackboard Collaborate.
Instructors can also utilize Blackboard tools to promote student engagement. Some examples include assessments, discussion forums, games, polls, surveys, and team-sharing.
Cincinnati State recommends that all online courses be structured in a logical, consistent, and efficient manner.
In order to raise the faculty’s awareness of teaching online at Cincinnati State, a workshop has been developed that focuses on the format and how to integrate it into existing and new classes.
On the Start Here or Student Resources page, information is included that lists out required technologies and plug-ins, with a link for downloading.
Instructions need to be detailed but simple so students can easily download the software and use it.
If the technology must be purchased at the Bookstore, a link to the bookstore’s Website should be included.
Examples of current technology that may be used in support of course objectives to enhance student learning:
Mobile applications to identify plants in a botany course
Wiki used for group collaboration
Blogs for student journals
Simulation replicating laboratory activities
Web-based tools that assist in practicing pronunciation and vocabulary.
Your course design should take advantage of the features on Blackboard or other online resources to support your learning objectives.
You can find a copy of this Prezi on the Distance Education Faculty Resources Page.
