    An Introduction to Teaching 100% Online Review the process of teaching online at UMES, designing an online course syllabus, modules for online instruction, developing materials for online delivery, transferring in-class assignments to online delivery, and reviewing your course with the UMES rubric. Understanding New Trends in Educational Technology The session will define and provide examples of all the buzzwords heard in educational technology. Along with tips for choosing which methods are best suited for your curriculum. The Assessment Landscape in Online Learning How educational assessment works and how it supports students in online classrooms. The session will display the evolution of assessment and meeting the modern educational needs of our students in the online environment. Including: assessment types, question types, delivery methods, and scoring methods. Show-n-Tell: Free Tools for Online Classrooms Opportunity to see a vast assortment of free tools available to download from the Internet. Come prepared to experience a very interactive session as the tools are demonstrated and we discuss how it would be helpful in your online classroom. Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor Training on how to use the products. It is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. When students use it they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading. Monitor is a companion product for LockDown Browser that enables institutions to protect the integrity of non-proctored, online exams. Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system. Creating and Managing Online Assignments This workshop presents Blackboard's exam and survey tools. We will discuss the pros and cons of online assessment and explore types of assessments, options for feedback, and online grading. Participants will also learn Respondus, an easy tool for creating, editing, and saving assessments for Blackboard. Working with Groups in Blackboard In this workshop you will learn how to successfully create groups and then manage the various tools each group is utilizing (blogs, journals, group discussion boards). Additionally, the creation of group assignments will also be covered. Engaging Students Online with Discussion Boards The discussion board is a very common tool used to engage students in online courses. In this workshop we will work with Blackboard's discussion board feature, with an emphasis on the effective design, implementation and management of this tool. Getting the Most Out of the Blackboard Grade Center The Blackboard Grade Center is a comprehensive tool which allows you to track students’ grades and provide feedback on their progress. Blackboard Rubrics In this workshop, you’ll learn how to evaluate readily available rubrics and choose one that will work for you and your students. You’ll then learn how you can use the Bb Learn rubric tool to modify the rubric to reflect the intended learning outcomes for your course and to effectively and efficiently assess your students’ work. You’ll get hands-on practice choosing a rubric and using the Bb Learn rubric tool in your own course shell.
