Uni Elearning Suite Updates

1 year 4 months ago

In the world of remote instruction and learning, there are many considerations to take into account when deciding on methods and tools that you might use for your specific course. One thing faculty and instructors should take into account is the Internet bandwidth capabilities of their homes and those of their students. Not all of us live in areas with access to reliable, high-speed internet.

Keeping this in mind, Information Technology (IT) has published some guidelines and recommendations for using the various tools available to UNI faculty under different bandwidth constraints. Here's also a workshop done in collaboration between the CETL and IT-ETMS called "Remote Possibilities: Considering your Students' Bandwidth".

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out by opening a Service Hub ticket.
