Podcasting and course capture are two proven methods of providing high quality educational materials in distance learning and in the traditional classroom. Participants should leave the session motivated to return to their colleges and apply what they have learned to create and implement new technological teaching tools.

This session will discuss steps taken to develop Bronx Community CollegeÂ’s Teaching with Technology (TWT) Level 2 faculty development program. The session will describe how BCCÂ’s program has added Web 2.0 applications to the online tools instructors can use. Web 2.0 tools allow students and instructors to easily communicate, collaborate, and share content online.
Jessica Martinez The University of Texas-Pan American, Department: The Center for Online Learning, Teaching & Technology Instructional Developer At the Center for Online Learning, Teaching and Technology at the University of Texas-Pan American we focus on meeting the needs of our faculty. We have a developmental and a technical side for the sole purpose of creating online courses. However, if a department or faculty member is interested in receiving training from us, we also provide that type of support. Faculty members are properly trained on how to reach their online students and how to learn the latest technologies. Participants can apply this information by adopting the Learner-Centered style of teaching. This has helped our online courses become a great success.
