Blue Tip: Using BlueCast with BlueLine2 #Winning

This week’s BlueTip topic is “Using BlueCast with BlueLine2 #Winning“.  Come to our brief 15 minute session where you can see how the new integration between BlueCast and BlueLine2 can be easily set up, allowing your students simple access to the BlueCast recordings of your lectures, and making you look AWESOME.

BlueTips are offered every week on Fridays at 1:00 pm in the DoIT/Edge training room, located in the lower level of the Reinert Library building.  The sessions last no more than 15 minutes, and then are followed immediately with our BlueFridays where you can drop in to get your technology questions answered.  #WINNING

Help Select the Next BlueCafé

Help Select the Next BlueCafé!

Two vendors will be presenting their web conferencing solution to campus over the next two weeks.  A search committee comprised of representatives from academic units, admissions, online programs, libraries, various business units and DoIT has previewed nearly a dozen possible solutions and narrowed the search to two.

Presentations will be held:

Tues., Feb. 12    1:00 – 2:00pm    in HLSB 188         WebEx
Tues., Feb. 19    1:00 – 2:00pm    in CHSC 452        Adobe Connect

Open Labs will be held:

Wed., Feb. 13    noon – 2:00pm  in eLearning Lounge       (bring laptop if possible)
Wed., Feb. 20    noon – 2:00pm  in eLearning Lounge       (bring laptop if possible)

 

We are extending an open invitation to the Creighton community for all these events. The demonstrations will be recorded and available for later viewing if you cannot attend.  This search was prompted because Wimba, the software behind BlueCafé, is being retired by its vendor, Blackboard. Contact Barb Stephens, bsteph@creighton.edu (402.280.2263) for more information.

BlueCast Forum 2.24.2011

Back in February we held a forum on BlueCast which included a short demonstration followed by a question/answer session from a few faculty members who are actively using the system.  Here is a recording of the session; recorded by BlueCast.
