An Open and Connected Course for Faculty Development

Get Started

We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!

Get Ready

We may publish more details here soon but for now you can get ready by setting up the following:

  • Be sure to have a Twitter account ready. If you already have one, that is great, if not you should set one up at the Twitter website.
  • You will be writing your assignments on your own web log (Blog). If you have one already, that is great or you may want to setup a new one for this course. There are many options to choose from depending on your style choice and needs. Options include
  • You will be creating videos of yourself so will need access to a device to take videos of yourself. You could use any video camera including your phone, tablet or the web camera on a laptop or desktop computer. In order to share your videos with others we highly recommend publishing to YouTube, so you will need a Google account for that. Many of you already have one, so just try logging in at http://youtube.com
  • Go register your information (blog, Twitter and more) using the menu at the top labeled "Register Your Blog/Twitter/YouTube" or click this link to go there.
