Teaching Online Basics

As a reminder, the CLT has put together this basic document that focuses on two primary needs: (a) making content available online and (b) interacting with students online. Open document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10p00Tb3fuX641xb7E-ZF8zk-lN_yImG2tbIzjnApDlY/edit?usp=sharing

● Creating Instructional Videos

The CLT has recently opened a new facility that allows to easily create professional looking presentations with embedded slides (powerpoint) with the push of a single button (no post-production required). This facility is available to College instructors to create brief instructional videos. To schedule a time to use it, please use our Reservation System. The One Button Studio is under Special Purpose Rooms (Moore 160).

Finding Digital Materials

CLT faculty will be happy to assist in identifying sources for digital materials (including interactive materials, audio, or video). If you need assistance, please contact us at cltmanoa@hawaii.edu. Also keep in mind our libraries are a great resource for video. An earlier communication from the library stated that the Library  “… has an extensive collection some of which may be streamed for an individual course. The Library also licenses streaming video from a variety of companies and will attempt to license videos for course use if we do not have them already. Information on how to request streaming video for a course can be found in the Course Reserves: Media/Streaming Reserves Info Guide. The direct link to the Guide is here https://bit.ly/2Qxsbrh.”

As a reminder, a list of subject librarians who can assist locating suitable online, subject-specific resources can be found on the Library website. Here is a direct link: https://manoa.hawaii.edu/library/help/subject-librarians/.

We look forward to helping you.
