Blackboard Collaborate

Blackboard Collaborate will be the web conferencing platform for courses housed in BlazeVIEW, replacing Wimba, beginning with the Spring, 2015 semester. During the Fall, 2014 semester courses housed in GoVIEW were migrated to Collaborate.

Wimba support will terminate at the end of Fall, 2014 semester.

Instructors using BlazeVIEW or GoVIEW will be able to learn more about this new tool, how it integrates with D2L, and how to archive current BlazeVIEW Wimba sessions, in workshops beginning in October.

Online Orientation is now Launched!

by Kathy Sundin on August 7, 2014 in eCore, GoVIEW, Online Orientation, Online Programs, The Center for eLearning

Online Orientation Coming Soon3

The new Online Orientation was launched on August 6. The new orientation program is geared toward new VSU online students and is integrated into the current MyVSU Student Portal. We hope this product will empower entering online learners with the knowledge and resources they need to successfully complete the enrollment process and navigate university systems and offices. The orientation will remain available to learners throughout their studies – providing students with a resource they can use throughout their time at VSU.

In order to provide a personalized experience, the orientation is designed to identify characteristics of the student entering the portal and display content relevant to that student.  While many portions of the orientation are applicable to all VSU students, some content will selectively display to certain relevant student populations.  For example, undergraduate students will have access to content specifically for undergraduate students, and graduate students will have access to content specifically for graduate students.

Please visit the Online Orientation website page for more information.
