Consultation in Building Quizzes in eClass

Cameron B-12 Interactive Classroom

 
Our collaborative learning classroom provides a 42 seat, flexible, high density wireless equipped teaching space where instructors can experiment with collaborative learning technologies and techniques. This space features 8 large screen monitors for groups of students to work on simultaneously; their work can be shared with other groups or the whole class instantly. Instructors can book the room for one session, one course module, or the whole semester. Consultations with CTL are available to instructors before and during their use of the space. Contact: 780.492.2826 or ctl@ualberta.ca

Lecture Capture

Swivl Robot
Our friendly video recording robot can be checked out by any instructor who wants to record their lectures. The Swivl camera swivels or rotates to track the instructor’s movements around the classroom. Instructors use their own cell phones or tablets to record video for critique by themselves or trusted peers. They could also record video of classes to post online to help students review course material. https://www.swivl.com/gen2-robot/ Contact: 780.492.2826 or ctl@ualberta.ca

Sound and Video Recording

Whisper Room
A new sound and video recording studio is located in CTL on the fifth floor of Cameron Library. We have the camera and recording equipment to shoot high definition video and record audio for instructional videos and podcasts. Instructors working with large funded projects and those working on small, module-based projects can book the space and work with our instructional technology specialists to create learning objects for their courses.
