If you need assistance, advice or training in the use of technology for teaching and learning, the first step might be to request a consultation with one of our Educational Technologists. If you need to learn about topics related to Moodlerooms, Learnscape, Accessibility, OERs, etc... this is the place to start! There is no charge for this service and it's open for all ESC employees.
"How can we more effectively and meaningfully connect with our students, whatever mode in which our mentoring takes place? We’re always challenged to enhance the quality of our engagement with them—inching--in the best way we can--into dialogue. I appreciate the opportunity that LEARNscape provides to encourage connection and to do it rather simply. Home-movies at their best; the possibility of flexibly adding another dimension to our communications; and the captioning feature means even more access. A simple tool—even for a novice like myself; it will be interesting to find out how useful these little videos are for our students."
