The Learning and Educational Center (LEC) is pleased to announce the release of the new Self-Paced “Teaching in the BlendFlex Model” online training.

This week Zoom has a planned update that will introduce three key features impacting the classroom. The first feature is the ability to share multiple programs at once. This will allow faculty members to share multiple programs at the same time rather than sharing their full screen. This will prevent the need to start and stop sharing just to switch applications that are shared.
The pending update also will allow the Pinning of chat messages which is perfect for keeping a prominent message front and center for all chat visitors to see. This could be used to pin ground rules for use of the chat or for keeping the details of a task or a link visible for all students to see.
The third upcoming feature impacting the classroom will allow you to suspend all participant activity including video, audio, and screen sharing. This could be useful in a situation where you quickly need to get control of the classroom environment.
As always, keep your Zoom Software up to date as many of these features only work with the latest updated version of software. Details about the updated features can be found below and on the Zoom site.
Do you know an NSU Faculty Member who is an online superstar! We are looking to Spotlight faculty members who could teach us all something new. Did you or a colleague do something in your class that worked really well that you would be willing to share? Let us know by sending us an email to email@example.com.
Hi, Sharks! We’re kicking off a new addition to our LEC weekly newsletter. Shark Notes is a brief summary of article highlights that you may find helpful. Whenever we read an article we’d like to share, we’ll provide the link in our newsletter. Since you probably get quite a few suggested articles coming from colleagues, external companies, and so on, you can first read the Shark Notes to help decide whether you want to read further. Check out our first article recommendation along with the accompanying Shark Notes. We promise, there will not be a quiz!
Many faculty have had to jump into virtual classrooms with little or no prior experience in running synchronous sessions effectively. Applying the principles of inclusive teaching can have a profound, positive impact on reaching diverse learners who are also adjusting to new environments, especially in Zoom. These eight suggestions will help you reach students and keep them engaged during your Zoom sessions.
