Marianne Bauer
Join CSU Online in one of the Distance Smart Classroom and learn all about the use of the amazing technologies available to engage your students and help focus their attention on your content. Use of Smart Meeting Pro software, the Crestron control system, Sympodiums and or SmartBoards, audio, and Echo 360 recording will be covered. Plan to bring a USB stick with a sample presentation so you can interact with the various technologies. If you plan to teach with a laptop, bring it along with your video adaptor and test everything out before using it in class!
