Webinars on Using OLI

In the month of January we will offer a couple of different webinars to help you make the most of OLI in your class, and each will be offered several times.  We hope that you can join us for one or both of them; each will last one hour.

I: Introduction

The Introduction webinar focuses on basic OLI use; how to set up your class, administer checkpoints, and use the gradebook. We’ll focus on the technical side of getting started, with a primary focus on first-time OLI users. Feel free to bring any questions you have.

II: Effective Use

The Effective Use webinar focuses on specific techniques for effective use of the student performance information offered in OLI, which can help you tailor your classroom activities to meet your students’ needs.  In this webinar we’ll focus mostly on how to use and understand the Learning Dashboard, and we’ll touch briefly on different kinds of active learning exercises that you can use to address your students’ needs.  We’ll also invite you to share your experiences with each other, or to ask questions.  In February we’ll have a follow-on webinar focusing more on classroom techniques.
