NAU eLearning - August 2012

2012-08-19

Start of Fall Term eLearning News & Updates

Bb Learn Update

Over the summer ITS applied a couple of significant service packs to Bb Learn, service packs 8 & 9.

There are some differences to the overall look and feel to Bb Learn, some new functionality, bug fixes and improved stability. A couple specific improvements are:


  • Better student tracking (The Student Overview for Single Course report displays an individual student's activity within a course, sorted by date)
  • Test question regrading

 

NAU Supported Tools

To see a list of the supported eLearning tools at NAU,

iClicker to replace eInstruction

iClicker adopted to replace eInstruction as NAU standard supported classroom response system. After reviewing the options and because of the poor performance of the eInstruction product, a faculty group recommended that iClicker become the supported university standard.

Bb Collaborate (Elluminate rebranded)

Over the summer the NAU webconferenceing tool, Elluminate, was rebranded to be Bb Collaborate. The service is still being setup and upgraded to ver. 12, but will be ready for fall classes.

Please hold off on linking webconferences in Bb Learn until further notice. We expect notice soon this week. We apologize for this inconvenience.

What was formerly Wimba Voice Tools are now called Bb Collaborate Voice Authoring.
