Blackboard
Close

Blackboard is the campus course management system used to deliver courses, upload content, assess student, and interact with students electronically. This website will provide the basic tools for the use of Blackboard. Information is available for adding or deleting courses, finding guidelines for maintaining consistency in the appearance of courses, and where particular course content is loaded. Mediasite, a lecture capture system; Questionmark, an assessment system; and LessonBuilder, an interactive content builder integrate with Blackboard. The integration enhances the learning process and automatically incorporates grades from these applications into the Blackboard grade book.

Mediasite
Close

Mediasite provides for the capture of lectures or video presentations so the content is available to students 24 x 7 to assist them in reviewing a highly visual based curriculum. All the content is cataloged and password protected. Lectures may be searched by course identification, instructor, or other variables. User statistics may be generated upon request to determine how frequently lectures are being viewed by a class or particular student.

Questionmark
Close

Questionmark is the electronic system for the delivery of assessments (exams, quizzes, and surveys) to the dental and dental hygiene program. There are over twenty different question types available for use in the assessment of student performance including the provision for images and motion sequences. The assessments can be run in a secure mode, with a restricted timer, and anonymous surveys. Following assessments, faculty receive a full set of reports to identify questions that were problematic or to assist in developing a higher level of questions enabling the control of item difficulty or discrimination.

Classroom Technology

Each lecture hall is equipped with "touch screen technology" to deliver lectures and seminars. The technology also incoporates cameras for surveillance during secure in-class assessments. The technology also includes a "telestrator" to enable notations to be made electronically on images being presented to emphasize particular points of importance. Control of lighting, media source, and audio is also available. All the same provisions in the classroom are also mirrored in the control room so that the AV staff can assist a presenter from a remote location. The destination of lectures can also be controlled to distribute information from one lecture hall to multiple locations or stream on the web for distant education students.
