Brand new look to MANY ecampus.uaf.edu pages. Kernell Snow, our web design student employee, has done an amazing job updating several PHP scripts.
As it turns out, every semester the list of course CRNs (identifying numbers) needs updating. That way the list of eCampus courses that have the 25% discount for OEC/CERT will show up properly. Here’s an example: https://ecampus.uaf.edu/course-details-19-20/?crn=33397 The small down arrow with text shows up and the tuition amount is listed as lower.

In my CS101 course I have asked students to consider what e-waste is and how it impacts society. This is just one article I required them to read: https://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7543489.stm
Working with PlayPosit. Questions I have include: How (source 1) shows up? Should I really go back and clean up my CC for punctuation. The text is correct, but it all runs together. Will I deploy this or others like it?

It’s the start of the semester and every once in awhile Blackboard drops something you find very useful. Here’s how you can go find it and turn it back on. That is, unless it’s deprecated. Ouch.
Joanne Healy, School of Education, likes the banners I make. Here’s the latest batch… her requests are fairly open-ended, so I can find the right mood to fit the need. Our department has access to a Shutterstock account. That and regular CC0 images make creating banners easier.
Hey all! I’ve been slack over the past few years in learning Adobe Illustrator. I LOVED Fireworks… WHY, OH WHY…. anyhow. Over the past few months, I have recreated graphics for the Mining Mill Operator Training. Granted I’ve only done a drop in the bucket of them, but my AI skills are coming along. Here […]
Guide students through your course verbally and visually. Whether your discipline is highly visual or not, using a picture to show the student where they are in the course or semester is helpful. You might want to use a quick video to show students how to navigate your course shell. If that’s not in the works consider providing a course calendar and course map. Both have value. Calendars are fairly easy to create while adding a course map can show how assignments flow from the topics you are delving into.
Take a moment to grab pen and paper, crayons, your laptop or whatever tools are at hand. Ask yourself what visual maps you use most. Use one of them as a template for what you build and deliver to your students.

A one hour presentation (no, not really) … on “Exploring different online tools to use for tracking your own work, task management, prioritizing. Discussing methods for planning your day and communicating needs with others. How are we replacing paper? What works for you?”
Grab your own copy of these slides – use anything you like! These are my presentation slides from eTech Fair 2016 When the presentation recording is shared with me, I’ll link that here too! The slides below show best in Chrome and Firefox.
I’m a lover of all things font. Truly. This being said, and the fact that I can recognize about 20 or so and know their names, is me geeking out. Maybe more than 20 if I’m really pressed. My pallet is font-tested and font-approved! So, what do you do when you want that font? […]
Free Mondays! I’ve enjoyed the last 17+ weeks greatly and picked up fantastic freebies for web design, background images for my slides, simply great ideas just by viewing. I’ve also paid for a few items… shhhhh! I know, I know. I really like free, but I also really like this collective’s approach. It’s easy to […]
It’s important to establish a way for students to reach you when teaching an online course. If it is not easy–for you or the students–it isn’t likely to work. In this week’s Teaching Tip, we share a few instructors methods for connecting one-on-one with students. Giving your students an avenue to reach you as well […]
Seems as if I had NOTHING to say the day I created this. Egads! Here goes: I like the beFunky photo editor. It’s worth playing around with. Where can you get it? Find in at the Chrome App store or tab or on the beFunky website. The images with this post were alterations of a […]
