Many of you may be thinking, “I hate computers! I’m a teacher, not a tech-geek.” Now you are being required to teach your on-campus lecture classes online.
I am offering a series of short videos to help you.
I’m NOT trying to turn you into an expert… I just want to teach you enough so you can take the regular training offered by Academic Technology Resource Center (ATRC) and not be completely lost.
