Learning Technology Coaches

How we can help

Here are some ways that the coaches can support you as you transition to online and remote teaching:

  • Developing a D2L course shell, such as creating discussion boards, setting up the grades tool and organizing content. 
  • Setting up quizzes, rubrics and drop boxes for course assignments.
  • Recording lectures in YuJa or PowerPoint. 
  • Assisting instructors in scheduling and running Zoom sessions, such as troubleshooting issues, scheduling, recording, and creating breakout groups.
  • Creating resources, materials, and guides for using learning technology tools.
  • Providing orientation to learning technology for students at the start of the course.
  • Managing your course through TopHat.
