Recorded Webinars Descriptions
5 Really Really Basic Windows Skills

At some point, you will likely need help from the OTS Service Desk or LSC-Online. As part of the assistance, they may ask you to refresh a web page, minimize a window, or send a screen capture. Everything grinds to a halt if you are unable to do basic tasks like these. This seminar will identify the 5 most basic skills you must have. A webinar by Harlan Williams. Recorded 10/14/20.

Proctoring Solutions Featuring SmarterProctoring In addition to the challenges facing all faculty as courses move online, dual credit instructors are faced with the additional challenge of having to set up SmarterProctoring as a proctoring solution for their Chromebook students. This webinar will guide faculty directly to the resources needed to do this, and provide current information regarding the status of proctoring solutions at Lone Star College.

Communicating with your Students

A review of synchronous and asynchronous channels of communication within D2L

Proctorless Quizzes

Proctorless online exams leverage the existing online testing environment to create exams suitable for low-stakes, self-assessment and diagnostic quizzes, all the way up to high-stakes midterms and final exams.

Release Conditions

Release conditions allow you to create a custom learning path through the materials in your course. When you attach a release condition to an item, students cannot see that item until they meet the associated condition.

Student Engagement

Increase student engagement by communicating in multiple formats, including active learning opportunities, and providing timely and useful feedback

Suggestions for Subjective Assessments

Subjective assessments are a form of querying which may have more than one correct answer, or perhaps more than one way of expressing a correct answer.  They do not require proctoring, therefore lending themselves to remote instruction. Moreover, they often land higher on Bloom’s Taxonomy (BT), as they are capable of assessing higher-order cognitive skills.
