Quick Start Guide to Educational Technologies
New! Online Learning has launched a new Moodle resource site for faculty – Quick Start Guide to Educational Technologies. This resource site is readily available to support your live teaching as it contains troubleshooting tips, how-to instructions and quick answers to the most commonly asked questions.
