ITC5910 Capstone Final Presentation
Susan Randall - Spring 2012 Cohort
The secondary goal of my capstone was to add to my knowledge bank by participating in various professional development opportunities. Throughout the capstone experience I was able to participate in numerous professional development opportunities that helped enhance my knowledge of the course management system used at the community college. I learned how to record lectures and other course communication using a variety of software and web applications. This improved the content of my online course and screencasts that I created have been shared within the department and are currently being used by other instructors.
My final goal was to grow as a leader in instructional technology. Developing an online course has helped me gain the confidence to develop future courses. Not only have I gained confidence in developing engaging instruction for students, but other instructors and adjuncts have begun using the materials I've created in their own courses. Gaining an understanding of the andragogy needed with the student base I teach, the knowledge of the various WEB 2.0 applications available to use, and the knowledge from this capstone experience I can move forward in developing the NET289 - Networking Capstone Project for Spring 2014 semester.

Web based learning tool
Training, projects and assessments were developed using the tools provided in SAM2013. This version of SAM was new to me as I had used it in 2007 when it didn't have all the current features.
SAM allows for the use of MindTap, on eBook that is interactive with SAM, Evernote and Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Students could take notes in the eBook and use the Flashcard feature to test their knowledge of terminology.
Software used to record and edit video for online lecture presentations that were longer than 3 minutes in length. This was a new resource that required learning on my part to be able to incorporate the videos into my course.
Communication Apps used ....
I used Twitter and Facebook private groups to communicate with my students in addition to the messaging feature of Blackboard. I also used the schools webmail service and tested out using Remind101 to remind students of deadlines.
