IiL Instructional Technology
The Innovations in Learning team provides training and mini-courses on the classroom technology we have here at UW-Parkside. We offer training to both faculty and staff so they can learn how to efficiently use the technology in their courses and workshops. Alongside classroom technology, UW-Parkside also offers a variety of software, such as Kaltura and Blackboard Collaborate, that the Innovations in Learning team is happy to help incorporate into courses.
Course Card Design
The Innovations team offers custom Canvas course cards that can be added to courses to make them stand out on your student's dashboard. You can provide us with examples, images that inspire you, or any ideas that you have! Want to request a course card? Click on the button below!Request Course Card
Kaltura provides UW-Parkside users with the ability to upload and manage their own media files (e.g., audio, video). All of the media users create is stored through their very own My Media account. Media sharing is easier than ever before, since Kaltura is fully integrated with Canvas. Create and/or share videos within your Canvas course, or create them separately and add them to your course as you see fit.
Canvas can be integrated with a number of different textbook publishing companies. Currently, Parkside's Canvas has a complete integration with: Pearson MyLab, Macmillan LaunchPad, Cengage Learning, McGraw Hill Campus, and Norton.
Canvas can be integrated with countless third party apps such as Twitter, Quizlet, Films on Demand, and more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information and if there are any apps that you want integrated into your course!
Blackboard Collaborate Ultra
Blackboard Collaborate provides a comprehensive online learning and collaboration platform designed specifically for education. With Blackboard Collaborate, you can create Canvas virtual classrooms (Canvas Online Rooms), virtual office space, or communicate, collaborate, and participate in virtual meetings that can be created and scheduled right from the UW System Portal and is available to all UW-P Faculty & Staff.
Turnitin is a plagiarism checker that is integrated with UW-Parkside's Canvas. When Turnitin is enabled on an online submission, an originality report will be generated to help the instructor search a submission for plagiarism. Not only is Turnitin a plagiarism checker, but it also allows instructors to provide feedback on student submissions right in Canvas, as opposed to instructors needing to download each individual submission.
