Podcast: Encouraging Faculty to Use Online Assessments
Posted by Joan Phaup
Fox Valley Technical College makes a special effort to help faculty — including those with little or no technological expertise — make the transition to online quizzes and tests. The college’s training team provides classroom, online and blended learning options for faculty. In today’s podcast, Fox Valley System Administrator Vicki Sahr gives practical tips for helping faculty embrace online testing. Vicki tells a favorite success story about an anatomy instructor who was reluctant to leave paper behind despite students’ eager requests for online tests. Listen to the podcast to find out what happened!
I learned something else from talking with Vicki: among the many Fox Valley departments that use online testing is the college’s Criminal Justice Division, which provides training and technical assistance for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and other law enforcement programs.
