TECH TIP . . .

Helping Teachers with Technology One "Ram" Click at a Time.

Acceptance of multiple video formats in eClass . . .

  • MP4 works best, MOV work nicely, but has to download first then play.
  • WMV works too, but is not preferred file type as it requires a plug in that may not be available on student machines.
  • Play in “in-line” player in D2L.
  • No need to save separately and create link, you can now drag and drop.
  • Embedding is easier.


CONTACT YOUR LSTC if you need assistance with adding a video to your module.

It's All About the Apps . . .

Although today’s mobile devices are shipped with powerful apps, the Tech Team researched a collection of apps for the iPad’s operating system. The selected apps were based on their category (educational), cost (free), rating (4 out 5 stars) and operating system (iOS). In addition, please make sure your mobile device is running the latest operating system for your APPs to load and operate smoothly.

Please click on link below to access the list for our Mobile Apps.

Click on link below to download the APP onto your mobile device. Directions will be sent via Lotus Notes on how to send out push notifications to parents and students.
