Engaging Students Through Technology 2010

The Weigle Information Commons presents the Third Annual Symposium
Friday, October 15, 2010, 10:30 am to 3 pm

We live today in a state of “continuous partial attention”. Instant access to people and information can both engage and distract us. New tools break down classroom boundaries and change the nature of college education. This year's symposium explores the creative ways faculty are integrating technologies into teaching, the challenges they face, and the disruptive nature of mobile technologies in lecture contexts.

Respondus Lockdown Browser PIlot Program: A Secure Browser for Online Tests & Quizzes.

Many faculty want students to use computers for taking quizzes or tests, but also want to prevent access to the internet or other resources during the test. The Respondus Lockdown Browser is a special web browser that students can use when taking tests in Canvas.   Once a test is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading; they are unable to access other web sites or programs. The Lockdown Browser is intended for use in on-campus, proctored settings.
