Collaborating with faculty to create quality courses.
The Rawls eLearning Center was established to support faculty with quality design and effective delivery of online, hybrid, and enhanced courses. Our focus is helping faculty encourage student engagement and success through their unique teaching style.
By collaborating with our instructional designers, we can help you develop well-planned, quality online courses. Starting the collaboration process early is key to success.
Equipped with two video studios, we can help you create innovative and captivating videos that illustrate your lecture content to increase student's understanding, engagement and motivation to learn.
The Production Studio is used to create well-designed videos that incorporate a variety of elements such as images, motion graphics and sound. As part of the production process in this studio, our instructional designers will guide you through storyboarding, text/graphic selections, studio sessions and multiple rounds of video edits. This in-depth process requires close collaboration and an early start to ensure your videos are exactly how you want them before your target semester begins.
In addition to the Production Studio, all Rawls College faculty have access to the Express Studio. Complete with studio lighting and a backdrop, this studio houses software that is capable of recording document camera and writing tablet input, audio, and a computer monitor. During their first recording session in the Express Studio, faculty are trained to independently record and complete video editing.
Blackboard Technical Support
We are familiar with the Blackboard learning management system and are ready to assist faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants/grads with questions. Our team does not offer student support. Students can access the Blackboard student support page for resources and personalized technical help.
Online Accessibility Review & Course Evaluations
We support accessible online content and quality online course design. To assist faculty with their online course design efforts, we strongly encourage faculty to submit their online courses for review.
Faculty will be encouraged to collaborate with our team to develop a process to correct findings and make adjustments to their course.
All course materials, including documents, videos, websites, etc., are evaluated to ensure a high level of accessibility throughout your course. Most commonly, full online courses are evaluated according to the Online Course Accessibility Guidelines.
An Accessibility Review can be requested by completing the Texas Tech eLearning Accessibility Evaluation form.
