The ReVISION Bootcamp is an annual event for all online instructors to revise their summer courses. This year's event will offer New Tech Tool sessions that will highlight asynchronous/ synchronous tools that could be used in online courses. These 20-minute sessions will walk through examples of how the following tools have been used by instructors and co-educators, provide useful links and resources, and offer time to ask questions about using the tool. 

Gradescope for Grading

10:30 - 10:50 am

Join Pablo Yanez as he introduces Gradescope, a tool that lets instructors save time on grading so that they can do more of what matters – teaching! With Gradescope, students receive faster and more detailed feedback on their work, and instructors can see detailed assignment and question analytics.

Zoom polls for Student Feedback 

11:00 - 11:20 am

Join David Trichler as he discusses how he uses Zoom polls to elicit student feedback throughout his course. The polling feature for meetings allows you to create single choice or multiple choice polling questions for your classes. You can launch polls during sessions and gather the responses from your students. You also have the ability to download a report of polling after each session. Polls can also be conducted anonymously if you do not wish to collect participant information with the poll results.

Kahoot for Student Engagement 

11:30 - 11:50 am

Join David Trichler as he introduces how he uses Kahoot to engage his students. Kahoot is a free student-response tool for administering quizzes, facilitating discussions, and collecting survey data. It is a game-based classroom response system played in real-time.

Lessons Learned from Online Proctoring

1:00 - 1:20 pm

Join Randy Coleman as he outlines the many lessons learned after using online proctoring tools over the years. He will highlight specific strategies for success when using Honorlock, our university-approved online proctoring tool.  

Slack to Foster Communication

1:30 - 1:50 pm

Join Anya Hogoboom as she highlights how she uses Slack in her course to communicate key information to students. Slack is a channel-based chat app that allows people to chat one-to-one or with groups. It can also be used to upload and share files.  

Piazza to Build Student Community 

2:00 - 2:20 pm

Join Jordan Walk as he describes how he uses Piazza in his courses. Piazza is a platform where students can ask and answer questions. With students teaching students, conversations on Piazza can continue long after office hours are over. Piazza gives students anonymity options to encourage everyone—even shy students—to ask and answer questions. Instructor endorsements of good questions and answers let instructors push the class in the right direction.

Perusall Program for Class Reading

2:30 - 2:50 pm

Join Jennifer Stevens as she demonstrates how she uses Perusall in her courses. Perusall is a crowdsourcing annotation tool that shifts class readings from the traditional solitary experience to an engaging and collective one. A tool that engages students to comment and question as they read, Perusall provides a framework for interactive conversations online or group meeting discussions.

Join Mike Blum as he walks us through new features in Zoom that can make synchronous class sessions more interactive and engaging.  

Brainstorming with Jamboard

3:30 - 3:50 pm

Students can interact in jams in lots of ways including brainstorming and creating in small groups or through the "everyone can edit" link with students in Google Classroom for whole-class collaboration.
