Content Development

Getting your course materials up and running

Educational Technology has staff available to help instructors build and deliver content for their courses. Our Instructional Developers can assist with tasks such as ensuring the function of clicker slides, captioning videos, or preparing recorded activities for smooth internet streaming, allowing you to spend less time worrying about things like “h.264 encoding” and “XML tags” and more time sharing knowledge in your area of expertise. These services are typically available to all S&T instructors after a consultation with an Instructional Designer or as part of the course redesign process.

VIDEO EDITING

Our Developers are experts at editing video for a variety of intended uses. Whether you need titles, transitions, clipping, cleanup, or re-encoding, we can perform the tasks necessary to prepare your video for distribution.

VIDEO CAPTIONING

Our Developers can enhance your videos with ADA-compliant real-time captioning for ESL students, visual learners, or viewers with hearing loss or impairment.

CLICKER SLIDE CONVERSION

Each year versions of the classroom clicker software change, which can necessitate a conversion of any clicker slides. Our Developers are trained in the conversion process and can modify old slides to work with the newest clicker software.

CONVERT CONTENT TO POWERPOINT

We can also help instructors move content from notes to PowerPoint slides for classroom presentations.

Our Developers can help you manage the Learning Management System by creating assignments, uploading material, improving course navigation, and many other types of digital work related to Canvas.
