As an EL instructor you need to stay abreast of new technologies, updates and changes to the LMS, maintain currency in best practices for eLearning, and viewing updates from the Office of Electronic Learning. The EL staff offer many workshops, demonstrations, and open sessions throughout the year to help you maintain your currency with new technologies and best practices for online teaching and learning. We also create and maintain a library of online videos, tutorials, and resources to help you complete various EL related tasks. The EL staff will send important EL related information via the Blackboard NCCC eLearning Faculty User Group and send a copy to your NCCC college email. As an EL instructor you are expected to read those messages. Please sign up to receive posts from our faculty blog and sign up for the Open SUNY Center of Online Teaching Excellence. This will help you stay current with new information.||On Going|
