Website Redesigned- Well, here we go...a website redesign for our online learners and teachers. This time we tried to better organize the content and address the needs of specific users. This site is geared toward students, faculty and departmental staff who are teaching and learning online. Hopefully, it will be a little easier to find answers to your questions. We are still tweaking some areas, so let us know how we can improve. What information do you need?
Meet the Staff- Come by anytime to say hello! We are eager to talk about your ideas for teaching and learning online and are here to help with your design and development. We are in UW 133 in Victoria.

Subscribe to our Blog- The world of blogging has exploded over the past year and we are jumping on the wagon! What is blogging? In its simplest form, it's an online diary--a web log of one's opinions and thoughts on a subject. A blog is typically a collection of journal entries by the blogger, with an option for visitors to add their own comments. So, blogging has essentially become a network of community discussion on any and all topics. See Wikipedia's definition and history of the blog.

Revised WebQuest Tutorial- WebQuests are structured, web-based learning activities that guide students through the process of gathering information to solving a problem and completing a project. WebQuests are often built and used by K12 teachers to analysis and critical-thinking skills in their students. Students in our Curriculum and Instruction program (School of Education) are often required to build sample WebQuests as part of their coursework.
Lectora demonstration- Check out a demonstration of Lectora during the Managers' Meeting, Thursday, Jan. 18th, 9-10am. Presented over ITV in Victoria: UC302, Sugar Land: 109, and Cinco Ranch: 144. Lectora is a tool to help you develop effective web-based training. For more details on this technology, please visit our Technology for Training page.
