Clickers changing Spring 2015

Change is coming to clickers here at Wilkes! Our eInstruction vendor was bought by Turning Technologies and the process of switching to TurningPoint Cloud clicker software has begun. The exciting news is TurningPoint software runs more reliably, integrates with LIVE, and supports more platforms: smart phones, tablets, pcs, and Macs. Students will need to acquire new clicker at the bookstore, but will be given a (mail in) credit for their eInstruction unit. eLearning will help facilitate a bulk return of clickers for departments with thirty or more clickers in their classes. More details to come. For an introduction to the new software browse to:  TurningPoint Cloud.

Kaltura MediaSpace

Kaltura MediaSpace, which was recently purchased by the University, will offer faculty and staff opportunities to publish and syndicate their videos. The videos can then be shared or embedded in courses or websites. Once you log into the MediaSpace portal, you can upload videos you created in the past or create a new webcam or screen recording. Kaltura MediaSpace also offers a Live Event option. Dr. Jennifer Edmonds, Associate Professor / Chair, Sidhu School of Business has been using Kaltura MediaSpace and incorporates it into her course website.
