As colleges around the system set up pilots and begin using this new lecture capture tool, we have literally hundreds of training sessions available – both online and on campuses. Training topics include those targeted to faculty and to administrators. Click here for al list of training topics, dates and locations.

Speaking of administrators; check out the new WAOL Tegrity administrator documentation, the documentation at http://help.tegrity.com, and the new Tegrity YouTube channel, which has a growing collection of Tegrity videos for faculty and students, contributed by gracious eLearning professionals from around the system. If you are your college’s Tegrity administrator and you are interested in attending an online Tegrity Admin training on November 22nd from 1:30 to 3:30 please contact Monique Kovalenko.
The State Board maintains a calendar of all faculty and staff professional development opportunities that are available within the system. Anything widely available in our region or online and sponsored by the board or a system college (that we know about) is listed here. If you have a likely candidate for inclusion please send the information to Scott Dennis or Boyoung Chae.
Interest in the WAOL Intro and Intermediate ANGEL courses (as well as the non-LMS specific How to Teach Online) courses continue to be strong, with well over 100 enrollees set to begin in the November cycle. Anyone associated with our system may enroll at no cost to your institution.
The ANGEL Learning Community is also rolling along, meeting every week on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays. Click here for a link into the Elluminate meeting room or click here for a schedule of dates and times. Again, anyone is welcome. Please send questions about the community to Scott Dennis, Eric Waterkotte, or Lesley Ann Wallace
