Faculty and graduate students teaching courses at SLU have many learning technologies at their disposal, but there are several key applications that have been adopted campus-wide.
Technical support for campus-wide learning technologies is handled by ITS. However, pedagogical support for these and many other learning technologies is available through the Reinert Center. Below is information about commonly used technologies.
Instructors who need technical assistance learning to use and/or troubleshooting problems in Blackboard can contact faculty support at 314-977-2252 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. How-to guides and training manuals also can be found here.
Tegrity Lecture Capture
Tegrity is SLU's campus-wide lecture capture solution. More than just recording live lectures, however, Tegrity can be used in a variety of ways to deliver supplemental content, assignment overviews, feedback to students, and more. Perhaps most interesting of all is the use of Tegrity for what has become known as "classroom flipping"-instructors pre-record lectures and assign them as homework; then, during class time, they engage students in hands-on, applied practice. Thus, they "flip" the homework and in-class work. For more information about the research on lecture capture, as well as guidelines for SLU faculty's use of Tegrity, see https://www.slu.edu/capture. Instructors who need technical assistance learning to use and/or troubleshooting problems in Tegrity can contact ITS support at 314-977-4000. How-to guides and training manuals also can be found at https://www.slu.edu/capture.
Respondus (an exam-creation tool)
Respondus allows instructors to create and manage exams, either online or printed for use in class. The tool is housed inside of Blackboard Learn. Instructors who need technical assistance with Respondus can contact ITS support at 314-977-4000. Those who need training can contact email@example.com, and/or consult the how-to guides here.
