We received some great tips from instructors attending the event, here are just a few ...

"I put the class syllabus and all the handouts on blackboard. It saves photocopies and they are available to students at all times." - Romeny Sabalius, Foreign Languages

"I am having students make 5 minute videos explaining/acting out concepts from class. Next semester I'll use these videos during class to reinforce the concepts and help break up the 1:15 long lecture." - David Czerwinski, Marketing

"In class Quizes: To make sure that only students attending class can take the quiz instructors can 1) set-up a password to the quiz that they give to students in class before the quiz 2) set a time limit for starting the quiz. These can be done easily through Assessment features in Blackboard." - Shireen Azzawi, Economics
