Let me introduce myself

I'm honored to join the TLT team and support the School of Business faculty. My job is to assist your pedagogical endeavors and technological adventures! If you're having difficulty with OAKS, would like to brainstorm ideas for content delivery, or just want to chat about teaching, I'm your go-to person. Over the next few weeks, I will be roaming the halls introducing myself. I look forward to meeting each of you.


Rolling Course Content From One Course To Another

Don't forget you can roll over an old OAKS course into a course in the new semester so you don't have to rebuild your courses from scratch. A tutorial is available on the OAKS blog, or via direct link: http://goo.gl/Nwuh4

Crosslisting OAKS Courses

Crosslisting allows you to combine two or more OAKS classes into one so that you only have to post material once. This is fantastic for those of you teaching multiple sections of the same course. IMPORTANT: You need to crosslist BEFORE your students contribute to the course as all student work and grades will be lost during the crosslisting. It is recommended that you crosslist BEFORE you put any content in the course as well. To request a crosslisting, complete the Request to Crosslist form available on the OAKS Homepage in the OAKS Requests widget. Allow 3 business days for completion.

Fake Student

If you want a fake student in your OAKS classes you should request it soon. A fake student allows you to take quizzes/tests, submit assignments and see the gradebook exactly how the students do. You can request a Fake Student by completing the Request a User be added to your OAKS course form available on the OAKS Homepage in the OAKS Requests widget. Allow 3 business days for completion.


IT Support Services has been busy refreshing classrooms and adding new equipment. Specifically, Beatty 320 has been upgraded with a new teacher's station.

I will be hosting a classroom demonstration on August 11th at 9:00am and August 14th at 1:00pm.
