BlackBoard Collaborate

BlackBoard Collaborate enables instructors and students to meet in virtual rooms, where they can communicate directly through a Voiceover Internet (VoIP) audio connection and see PowerPoint slide sets, whiteboards, text chats and more!

Custom Training Sessions

Emerging Instructional Technology Lab

Did you know that Millennium Hall houses an Emerging Instructional Technology Lab? Opened in the fall of 2014, the lab offers hands-on-trials on a number of hardware and software items. The Emerging Instructional Technology Lab (EITL) is located in 102 Millennium Hall, just inside the first floor building entrance near the HelpDesk. If you're curious about what's coming or what may already be here, the EITL would be a good place to check out! And, if you have some ideas of your own for new technology, let us know! For more information, or to share a suggestion, contact Jane Henderson, Learning Technology Services director.

Learn@UW-Stout (LMS) Open Labs and Call-In Labs

The purpose of the On-campus Open Labs is to provide direct, face-to-face support for those in need of Learn@UW-Stout (LMS) environment assistance. The At-a-Distance Open Labs allow us to provide direct, real time support to instructors in need of LMS environment assistance.

Lecture Capture (Tegrity)

If you are interested in utilizing Tegrity to record your lectures, please attend one of our brief training sessions. Contact Sali Mounce for more information.

My Media

UW-Stout has a new multimedia management system integrated with Learn@UW-Stout called My Media. My Media can process and hold various types of media. This repository can be personal or shared in a Learn@UW-Stout course. Instructors can record mini lectures from their webcam, do screen recording for demonstration, voice over PowerPoint, or upload previously created video. These videos are stored in the instructor's own "My Media" repository.

My Media can be shared in news, course content, assignments, lectures, etc., to enrich and improve learning and teaching. For example, instructors can include video or audio in an assignment or content item, and students can use videos or audio to respond to a discussion post. Students can also submit video assignments to the course Dropbox. My Media works on all major browsers and with most online supported video formats.
