You can share this infographic with your students as the finals are approaching. Students sometimes may prefer online tutoring if they cannot make it to campus at a certain hour, or students may think that by using the online tutoring they avoid the stigma around tutoring. In any case, we view this as complimentary to our excellent on-ground tutoring services as it is available 24/7 and covers a variety of subjects. It is available to SCSU students for free (15 hours), log-in is via D2L Brightspace, under Resources.
The System Office is currently planning for an upgrade to D2L version 10.7.0 (and Daylight Experience) to occur Friday-Saturday, June 2-3, 2017. This upgrade will require a downtime, with the time and duration to be determined in the coming weeks.
All Minnesota State faculty are invited to attend a WebEx session on Thursday, March 23 at 1:00 PM that will provide an overview of the new features of this version, which is scheduled to roll out to campuses on June 2, 2017.
You will get to see the improvements to:
- Intelligent Agents
- Quiz Question Creation Process
- Small group discussions
- Responsive design for mobile devices (Daylight Experience)
- And more
There will be more training opportunities for faculty in the future, but if you’d like a sneak peek at 10.7.0, please plan to attend on March 23. The session will be recorded for later viewing, but if you attend it live, you will have the opportunity to ask questions on the spot.
Please feel free to join us in Centennial Hall room 115 on Thursday, March 23 at 1:00 PM for the WebEx session. You may also join the training directly, however, WebEx can only accommodate up to 250 connections.
