Getting Started Questions
How do I get started with Blackboard, Lecture Capture, Respondus, iClicker, Turnitin, and other instructional technologies? – Our instructional technology consultants will meet with you to help you get started, show you how to use the application as a pedagogical tool and explain best practices for classroom and online time management. ITS can provide useful web links, resources and job aids. Our face-to-face and one-on-one consultations will demonstrate that ITS is ready and able to go the extra mile for you.
Must I make a reservation to use a ParScore machine or can I simply walk in to use one? – Sometimes, during slower periods, you can walk in during FIT Center hours to use a machine. However, we recommend that you make a reservation, especially during midterms and final exam week. On your first visit, a consultant will explain how to use ParScore and offer tips for getting the best results.
