Our Focus

Workshops & Events

Throughout the year Learning Technologies facilitates workshops, courses, and one-on-one or group consultations designed to help you advance your knowledge and mastery of educational technologies

Blackboard Support

We offer one-on-one support for Blackboard on a walk-in and appointment basis and regular workshops throughout the year on Blackboard features. Watch for the launch of our updated Knowledge Base, the one-stop-shop for Blackboard online support at COD.

Faculty Lab

Our computer lab is equipped with both Macs and PCs, webcams, headsets, and a WACOM tablet. All computers have Camtasia and Adobe Creative Suite installed.

New Technologies

Learning Technologies investigates and evaluates new technologies for online and classroom use. We help to make sure these technologies are available to you as a faculty member, through our labs and equipment checkout, and provide support and training.

The sound booth can be used for creating podcasts and adding voice-overs to screencasts or presentations. Using our green screen and HD camera, we can help you script, shoot, and edit brief videos for your courses.

Working closely with the Library, Learning Technologies can help you obtain and use copyrighted digital material for your online, hybrid, or web-enhanced course. We also offer assistance with organizing and uploading publisher content, such as course material and testbanks.
