New "Technology for Educators" Courses

I recently developed two (free) online courses titled Technology for Educators.  The goal of these courses is to help educators effectively leverage modern instructional technologies to improve student learning.  Although designed as a set of introductory courses, tips and strategies are also included for more experienced educators. 

Topics covered in Tech for Educators Part 1 include: 

- Course & Student Management 
- Sharing Resources
- Communicating with Students

Topics covered in Tech for Educators Part 2 include: 

- Creating Instructional Videos  (Quick Tips, Planning, Recording, Editing, & Publishing)
- Sharing Instructional Videos  (Hosting & Distributing)

Each course is relatively short and can be completed in just a few hours.  You can also use these courses as a resource to browse in any sequence of you choosing.  

For those of you that are very tech savvy, please consider sharing these introductory courses with teachers who are just dipping their toes into the educational technology waters.

Future courses will focus on various technologies, techniques, and practical strategies related to online assessments.
