Computer Technologies Available for the Faculty
Paul Moran and Rick Gasper
2-2:45 p.m., Hafey 603
The focus of this session will be on campus network resources available to faculty and students. Session topics are listed below. 
1. Share space for class information on the G drive. It is a place were a faculty member can place documents spreadsheets, data files that students can copy but they can not change. ALL students can see the drive. Faculty need to request access to it. 
2. H drive- Every student had a location on the network that they can place current work. The files are available to a student from anywhere on campus. The student is the only person that has access to those files. 
3. Shared folders: If a Faculty member needs a location where students can share their work with other students (group projects), a shared folder would appropriate. The shared folder is high customizable. Several folders can be set up for student groups for a class. Faculty members can decide who has access to folders, and a faculty member can decide who has read (see) or change (write) to a folder. 
4. Public folders- A public folder is similar to a shared folder, except it is handled through email. This works well for group projects 
5. List server- general class discussions can be carried through email, Similar to public folders. 
6. Shared Web space- if a project needs to have a web site, we can create a shared web location and give a group access to make changes to the web site. 

Graphic Design
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. 

Impatica/Learnlinc
Bernie Healey, Bill Keating, Melody Priebe
2 – 2:45 p.m., Hafey 614
This session will demonstrate some of the capabilities of 2 different software packages, Impatica and Learnlinc. Impatica software allows an instructor to narrate over an already prepared PowerPoint presentation and then compress it for efficient playback over the web. Learnlinc software allows an instructor to deliver “live” lectures over the web by using a webcam and microphone. We will show you examples of how these 2 software packages have already been used here at King’s.

Interactive Technologies
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.

Intro to Powerpoint
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.

Some of the specific topics include but are not limited to:
*Audio CD production by converting existing content (LP's, cassette tape, video sound tracks, etc.)
*Production of DVD's from existing video or multimedia materials
*Creating short "video clips" on the computer for insertion in PowerPoint or Web-Based presentations

Quick and Easy WebPages
Bill Keating

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.

Teaching with the Smartboard
Sam Falbo, Melody Priebe
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.

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!

VideoConferencing at King’s

King’s has been “exporting” core-level courses to high school juniors and seniors throughout the state via videoconferencing since 1998.
