As a web developer and designer teacher and eLearning Director I'm always researching and testing productivity applications. 

Here's an (updated) article about the Power of Agile Project Management and tested applications you might find interesting, https://myelearningworld.com/power-of-agile-project-management-in-e-learning-10-best-tools/

What is Agile Project Management? 

Do you provide training for Project Management applications?

Below are just two examples of industry standard training videos available to all South Seattle College registered students and employees! Faculty can add any of these videos to their curriculum, as well!

How to Use Open Educational Resources

This course provides information and experience in using open educational resources (OER) in your teaching. We will discuss the concept of OER and open licenses. There will be plenty of practice in locating and sharing open educational resources. This is a 2-week online, asynchronous course and participants are expected to spend 10 hours to complete the course. For more information contact Boyoung Chae.

Accessibility 101: The Basics of Inclusive Design

This three-week, online, asynchronous course is designed for faculty and staff who want to learn simple and quick steps to make materials accessible for people with disabilities and better for all users. Participants need not be tech-savvy to take this course, but familiarity with Microsoft Office applications and Canvas are important. Participants will be introduced to basic accessibility concepts, practices and inclusive design standards. The time commitment for this course is approximately 20 hours. See the course registration page for upcoming training dates.

eLearning Faculty Learning Communities

SBCTC eLearning funds several eLearning and open educational resource related faculty learning communities.

Quality Matters

Quality Matters (QM) is a faculty-centered, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online courses and online components. SBCTC eLearning funds Quality Matters training and certification for each community and technical college each year.

Quarterly Course Evaluations

posted May 25, 2016, 3:49 PM by Sara Newman

Move from the old manila envelope and shorty pencils to an easy-to-use course evaluation web application

We can all help save time and trees by using the quarterly course evaluation district web application. Avoid those horrid tiny pencils and manila envelope packets of course evaluation paper -- not to mention the hours of work your division staff puts in typing up all your student's comments.

District has continued to improve our course evaluation web application and it's super easy to setup. We can even customize our course evaluation questions!  

As always, this course evaluation tool is available to all face-2-face and online course types.

To find answers for questions like, "How often am I required to have my courses evaluated" an "Who sees/reviews my course evaluations?" and more, use your Outlook login to accesshttps://inside.seattlecolleges.edu/courseevaluation/ and order your evals ASAP.

Have questions about evaluations? Please contact Faculty Development Coordinator at 206.934.4103
