eLearning and eResearch Road Show
eLearning and eResearch are ‘on the road’ – we’re off to the Central Library with one of our 3D printers and a set of iPads in tow. Our eLearning and eResearch consultants will be talking about 3D printers and examples of how they’re used for the first 15 minutes – afterwards the floor is yours. Bring your questions about getting your course ready for Semester 2 or just come along and check out our iPad class sets or the 3D printer in action.
We’ll have two eLearning and eResearch Consultants answering questions about the services on offer:
• 3D printing
• eLearning and eResearch consultancy
• File and data storage options including – Syncplicity and high-capacity storage
• Otago Blogs
• Otago Podcasts
• Otago Capture (lecture recording system)
• Otago Wikis
• iPad class sets
When: 1-2pm, Thursday 30 June
Where: CEN1, Central Library
Introduction to University Teaching
Every year the Higher Education Development Centre holds a day for staff new to University teaching (they may be new to the University, or just new to teaching). If you’re a new staff member, welcome!
During the day eLearning will present an overview session on the services that we provide to support teaching. As we now provide a growing list of services, it’s not practical to go through each in detail in the time we have available, so we hope to provide a jumping-off point. A couple of key resources to refer to are the two “Toolboxes” – online resources which allow you to find out more information about teaching and research services:
In response to some questions during the session, here are a couple of additional resources:
Some of the services that I’ll mention in the session also have information on this blog – have a look in the menu to find an overview of our LMS (Blackboard), Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, Lecture Recording, iPad Loans, and Unitube.
I’ll also be talking about something quite new – 3D Printing. This hasn’t (yet) been included in the eLearning or eResearch Toolboxes. However, you can explore the resources on this blog, or have a look at the following links which I may mention at the session:
- Thingiverse – online repository of 3D objects to print
- Sketchup Make – application for creating 3D objects
- BodyParts3D – online repository of 3D body parts
- Sculptris – application for sculpting 3D objects
