Fall Sessions Scheduled

I am happy to share a link to a list of upcoming sessions:
We have some great topics coming up, including information on using system tools like ANGEL and Tegrity and other topics including "Technology for Educators: Tools for Teachers" presented by Sue Frantz from Highline Community College, and many others.  Some topics are still in the works so check back for updates.  We will also once again be hosting open office hours for anyone who wants to attend, ask questions, and/or experiment with Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate).  Check the link for a list of when those open office hours will be held and who will be hosting which sessions.
