Tri-C’s Math MOOC has officially earned Quality Matters recognition!

Tri-C’s Math MOOC has officially earned Quality MattersTM recognition through QM’s Continuing & Professional Education Program.  To earn recognition, a course must meet all of the 21 essential standards and receive a minimum of 85% of all the standards.  The MOOC significantly exceeded these expectations!

The faculty who participated in the development of the MOOC were Math Professors Idrissa Aidara, Don Gabriel, Curtis Kaschube, Cathleen Rossman, and Michael Wilkins.   These faculty worked very closely with eLi’s instructional design team – MaryAnne Nestor and Cheryl Knight.

This recognition speaks to the caliber of the collaboration between the faculty subject matter experts, and the high level of expertise of the instructional design team.  Very well done!

Congratulations MOOC Team!

SoftChalk and Respondus Issues

exclamation point alertSoftChalk Update

SoftChalk within Blackboard has been updated to resolve issues playing content in IE8 and IE9. As a result, all faculty with SoftChalk content in their Blackboard Course sites need to synchronize that content.  Please find a document with specific information about how to sync your SoftChalk content HERE.  Please use Internet Explorer or Chrome (it does not appear in Firefox correctly.)

Respondus

Several anecdotal reports have surfaced about difficulties with Respondus products, which may include Study Mate.  Please contact the Help Desk at 987-4357 to report any issues.

As we continue to assist with the resolution of these issues, please be sure to contact the Help Desk so that the resolution can be tracked, brainstormed, and solved within a timely manner.

Update re: Faculty Reassignments

A quick note regarding how eLi is currently processing faculty reassignments.  Please do email us if your experience is not aligned with this process, and we will be happy to help resolve any complications!  When eli is informed that a CRN course based assignment has been changed the follow steps immediately go into place.

  • The Course site is archived
  • An email is sent to the faculty advising that due to a reassignment their course has been archived with instructions on how to access the archive
  • The course site is then deleted
  • The newly assigned faculty can now request a course site

If you have any questions relating to the process, please contact Michelle.Watson@tri-c.edu.
