LIS Technologists and Liaisons will be offering more workshop in J-term on Moodle and WordPress, as well as general technology work sessions where faculty can get assistance on using any platform supported by LIS. There will also be workshops on migrating Segue sites to these other platforms. For more information, see: Segue from Segue > Workshops
Beginning Jan. 1st, 2012, we will be disabling the creation of new sites in Segue with the goal of eventually turning off Segue on August 31, 2012. To help faculty move their Segue sites to other platforms, we have scheduled a number of Segue Migration Workshops:
The Course Hub was the principal recommendation for how best to Segue from Segue made by the Curricular Technology team in the fall of 2010. The Course Hub has been in use at Middlebury for nearly a semester now, having been launched by the LIS Web Application Development group in September 2011.
To help others understand this innovative, curricular resource aggregation platform, I made a screencast that gives an overview of its design.
This is one of a series of Course Hub screencasts we will be publishing in the coming weeks. Check out the Teaching with Technology blog to see Course Hub Case Studies
Louisa Stein is an assistant professor of Film and Media Culture. In the spring of 2010, I interviewed Prof. Stein about her use of technology in a number of her courses. Below is a screencast from that interview that describes her use of WordPress and Moodle in a first year seminar course on the “Aesthetics of the Moving Image.”.
The Course Hub is being actively used by a variety of courses this fall. To give a sense of the different ways faculty are using this new platform, we’ve made a short screencast that shows a number of courses and some the resources they have linked to their course hub sites.
The Curricular Technology team has scheduled workshops and work sessions for faculty on various platforms that are available for teaching and learning. Workshops typically provide overviews of a given platform. Work sessions are designed to provide hands on support and consultation.
