The SoftChalk Cloud is an award-winning digital curriculum authoring solution that combines content authoring, learning object repository, hosting, and management features with an easy way to track student score results that is already seamlessly integrated with Blackboard.

VoiceThread is a cloud application integrated with Blackboard that allows you to upload, share, and discuss documents, presentations, images, audio files, and videos within your course. This does not replace Kaltura but rather adds the ability to have voice or text discussion via comments on top of the media you’re already using.
- October 18 @ 3pm
Kaltura is the College’s video streaming server. Using Camtasia/SnagIt or the built-in tools to Kaltura, you can easily create video introductions of yourself, course material, or tours of your courses and easily share this video within your course. By uploading videos to Kaltura, your videos will automatically get in the queue for captioning, too. Additionally, your students can use Kaltura to create videos for sharing within the course.
- November 8 @ 3pm
The Blackboard Grade Center has many features, including categories, weighted totals, and more. This training will walk you through setting up your Blackboard Grade Center so that students can know their grade at any point throughout the semester.
- December 6 @ 3pm
Tea & Technology is an open-ended, subject suggested workshop generally offered once a month throughout the semester. All Tea & Technologies are held in the Rotary Global Studies Center in the Jim & Patsy Rose Library. Topic suggestions and questions should be directed to Athena Smith, Instructional Development Coordinator, (firstname.lastname@example.org). If at any point in time would you like to give input on the topics or scheduling of these workshops you may fill out a quick survey available here: goo.gl/mPAxqL.
The CCC-Training calendar, which includes Tea & Technology dates, has a publicly accessible Google Calendar that is automatically updated with any changes that may be made throughout the semester. You can also access that calendar on the Instructional Technology webpage.
