Copyright Workshop
Lujean Baab

This workshop, which will be facilitated by a representative from CAPE, will focus on current copyright law and the implications for faculty and students in traditional, multimedia and distance learning classrooms. Topics include:  Fair Use; Digital Millennium Copyright Act; TEACH Act; Internet resources; Intellectual property; Student works; Online content; Requesting permission; Liability and institutional policies; Discipline-specific concerns.

 Digital Video and Webcasting
Keith Dils
11-11:45 a.m., Hafey 614
This session will demonstrate how to use WebCT to deliver digital video case studies and to elicit student responses for evaluation. The use of web-based interactive activities will also be modeled. Participants will be provided with laptop computers. Participants will have the opportunity to have a hands on experience with the technology being modeled.

Bill Keating
11 – 11:45 p.m., Hafey 603
This session will demonstrate how easy it really is for you to create web pages for use in your teaching. Using Microsoft FrontPage, faculty will be guided through the basic steps of putting their syllabi, study guides, photos, favorite links and other documents on the web.

Gradebooks with Excel
Jayne Moore
10 – 10:45 a.m., Hafey 614
This session will offer a brief introduction on how to create gradebooks using the Excel spreadsheet program.

Graphic Design for Powerpoint and the Web
Ann Joyce
10-10:45 a.m., Hafey 604
This session is an introduction to the art and science of graphic design for technology. Prevent design disasters, ineffective images, shunted structures, color chaos and tragic typography in your PowerPoint presentations, WebCT documents, multimedia presentations and web pages. Learn the graphic presentation of visual and verbal information to enhance electronic delivery. A primer of color psychology included if time allows. This session will be most valuable to beginner audiences--no design experience--and intermediate audiences--can differentiate between visual and intellectual unity. 

"Introduction to Microsoft Office 2003"
Paul Moran
2 – 2:45 p.m., Hafey 610
Over the summer, IITS will be upgrading all lab and classroom computers to Microsoft Office 2003 with departmental offices to follow in fall 2004. (Departmental offices wishing to be early adopters will be encouraged.) This session will address the similarities and major differences between Office 2000 and Office 2003. We will demonstrate the enhancements users will encounter in Word, PowerPoint and Excel. In addition, we will take a look at the more powerful and collaborative features of Outlook 2003.

Bill Keating, Lujean Baab
1 – 1:45 p.m., Hafey 610
This session will demonstrate some of the capabilities of the software package Learnlinc.  It allows an instructor to deliver “live” lectures over the web by using a webcam and microphone. We will show you examples of how this software package has already been used here at King’s.

Brian Bower
1-1:45 p.m., Hafey 604  
This session is an informal, practical introduction to the use of Power Point. We will look at some examples of class lecture/support materials and how they are used. We will quickly step through the basic concepts you need to get started producing PowerPoint presentations.

Question and Answer Session with IITS Staff
Noon – 12:45 p.m., Hafey 603
Join us for a complimentary lunch and pose a few of those hard to answer technology questions to our staff. Any King’s technology topic is fair game. This informal session will be a spontaneous dialogue between IITS and faculty. We’ll try our best to answer your questions and also listen to your ideas and concerns.

Teaching with the Smartboard
Marianne Sodoski, Andy Ewonishon
1 – 1:45 p.m., Hafey 603
The SMART Board interactive whiteboard turns your computer and projector into a powerful tool for teaching, collaborating and presenting. With a computer image projected onto the board, you can simply press on its large, touch-sensitive surface to access and control any application. Using a pen from the SMART Pen Tray, you can work naturally at the board to take notes and highlight important information. Whenever you meet, teach, train or present, the SMART Board interactive whiteboard helps your group save time, increase interactivity and improve communication. Come to this session for a demonstration on using the SMART Board for interactive instruction.

Digital Photography Upgrade
Ann Joyce
11 – 11:45 a.m., Hafey 604
This session examines the digital camera as a vehicle to incorporate dynamic imagery into Powerpoint presentations and web pages. Learn techniques to technically upgrade and graphically improve photos such as adjusting point-of-view, using selective focus, controlling brightness and sharpness, adding warmth to image values, adding accent color, cropping judiciously, and much more.

Using Multimedia Equipment in King’s Classroom
Sam Falbo, Andy Ewonishon
10 – 10:45 a.m., Hafey 603
Media Services will provide in depth instruction on the use of technology in the classroom. From the use and operation of LCD projectors to solving audio difficulties, the staff of Media Services will answer all of your questions. We will break down all the different types of technology in the classrooms and meeting rooms on campus and make them easy to understand and use. We will also detail the services we offer to the campus community. Hope to see you there!

The Wireless Campus
Paul Moran, Rick Gasper
1 – 1:45 p.m., Hafey 614
This session will focus on the wireless computing initiative here at King's. We will demonstrate a handheld wireless device as well as a wireless laptop. We will also cover what can and cannot be done with wireless and what should and should not be done over wireless. An overview of the campus wireless access point locations will be presented to better educate the campus community about where they can connect to the network/internet without being "plugged-in". In addition, we will discuss the type of wireless card you will need to have installed in your laptop to communicate with our wireless network.
