Technology Tools in the Spotlight!
Blackboard Profile Picture (Avatar)
Upload a picture of yourself, so your profile picture appears in the page header, people tools, blogs, wikis, the discussion board and your class roster. Images must be at least 5 megabytes in size and at least 50 x 50 pixels in one of the acceptable formats (GIF, JPG, JPEG and PNG). Learn more at http://tinyurl.com/gm652bf
Tip: Ask your students to upload a picture so classmates can “see” them on the discussion board, blogs, and wikis.
Share youTube and Vimeo videos in class after removing the ads, editing the starting and end times, hiding related videos and removing other distractions or inappropriate materials. Just copy & paste the video link and SafeView generates a new link to share or play in class. Learn more at https://safeshare.tv/
Tip: Use Safeshare to make sharing videos as easy as clicking a button at conferences, meetings, in lectures, etc.
Flippity easily turns a Google spreadsheet into a progress indicator, random name picker, trivia game show, online flashcard generator and more. Check out the demos, download the templates and get instructions at http://flippity.net/
Tip: Use the Flippity Quiz show for interactive test reviews in the classroom.
