KEEP TEACHING

The purpose of this plan is to help faculty and students maintain the processes and progress of teaching and learning in the event that in-person class sessions cannot be attended. The goal is to maintain the delivery of instruction as much as possible to minimize the disruption of student progress.

Primary Resources:

At a minimum, it recommended that you utilize the trainings and resources listed in this section when preparing for online course delivery.

Technology has changed the nature of education—and the jobs of educators. Online instruction requires different methods to help students learn.  This course is designed to help corporate trainers and teachers update their skill sets to teach effectively online.

Canvas is a leading open-source learning management system (LMS), used by institutions and instructors around the globe. In this course, the instructor helps you get up and running with this powerful LMS, sharing how to set up a class, work with students, teach online, and leverage key tools and features in the Canvas LMS for student success.

LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within a learning management system.  Respondus Monitor builds upon the power of LockDown Browser, using a student’s webcam and industry-leading video analytics to prevent cheating during non-proctored exams.

Other/Additional Resources:

The additional resources provided below are available to help you enhance your online course delivery .

LCTCS has purchased a resource called 180 Skills. This platform provides content with instructor guides for over 700 online modules in areas related to our academic, health sciences, and technical programs (ex: CNC, Electrical, Helth & Safety, Power Tools, Welding, etc). These modules/assessments can be used in both credit and non-credit courses.
 
Instructions for accessing the 180 Skills modules/assessments:
 
  1. You will use the 180 Skills Courses - LCTCS spreadsheet (excel doc) to easily identify the modules/assessments you want to use in your course. There are two sheets in the excel document. One sheet is titled color key – courses and skills, which is the sheet you are currently viewing. The other sheet is labeled skills 180 course information. Using the color key sheet select a subject, you want to explore. The link will direct you to that subject area on the course information sheet. Important information - You will use the 3rd column titled 180 Number on the excel document to identify the modules/assessments in the Dropbox. I would also like to point out the course information sheet provides you with URLs for student study guides and instructor guides. - Do not download the Study/Instructor Guide PDF files directly. Place the Study Guide URL links on your LMS to allow the user to access the latest version of the PDF file. The Instructor Guides are not intended for students.
  2. Once you have identified the modules/assessments you want to use, you will use the Dropbox link provided in the email to access the 180 skills modules/assessments. 
  3. You will need to download the zip file to your computer for any modules/assessments that you would like to import into Canvas.
  4. Once in your Canvas course, you will need to first go into settings, then Navigation, and move/drag the SCORM option up to the course navigation settings that are visible to students.  Then be sure to click SAVE.
  5. Now you should see SCORM as an option on the left hand navigation of your course.  Now open SCORM in Canvas. You will notice an upload button at the top right of the screen. Click there to upload the zip file of your module/assessment into the course.  Canvas is going to ask you if you want it to be a graded assignment.
  6. All 180 Skills uploaded into your Canvas courses are found in assignments.

  1. You will need to download the zip file for any module that you would like to import into Canvas.
