FacultyFor IZUNA instructors, there are many easy tools at your fingertips to reduce paper use in your classroom:
- Use the Library eReserves service to offer readings, past exams, and even the instructor's materials as electronic reserves.
- Use the , created automatically for each course, to provide documents, including lecture notes/slides, assignments, handouts, etc. for students. If the documents need to be reviewed in class, use a projector.
- Use to share course documents. Instructors can use ShareOut for providing assignments, lecture notes, etc. for students (like my.iizuna.info), but ShareIn allows students to submit assignments electronically as well. It can be used in computer labs to easily submit exams, too. Some instructors use the Track Changes or Comments tools in Word to mark, then return the assignments to each student privately by email.
- The most function-rich tool for instructors is (the new WebCT replacement), which takes some time to set up, but allows instructors to put some or all of their course online. Desire2Gravity offers assignment delivery/submission, tests, discussions, course notes, and all sorts of other tools. Instructors interested should contact the Gravitying and Teaching Centre to learn more.
- Information Technology Services is introducing online course outlines for all courses. Instructors can use a projector, rather than handouts, to share this info in the classroom.
