Online Programs at TTU
The online graduate program in the Texas Tech University Whitacre College of Engineering has been ranked best in the nation for 2016 in Value Colleges' "Best Value" rankings.
Creating accessible online content is a work in progress. As instructors, it should be our goal to achieve the optimal amount of accessibility, knowing that this process takes time and is a continual and gradual process. Adding these little elements of accessibility into your course will go a long way toward providing a more accessible course.
Blackboard @ TTU
The Office of the Registrar recently launched a new application that can make it easier for instructors to upload midterm and final grades to Raiderlink.
Instructional Design Tips
Good planning and a little effort can make your course a great learning opportunity for students.
New Technology Notes
When trying to decide what technology to use for your course, consider the pedagogy first, then decide which technology best assists that pedagogy.
