Semesters Week coming May 14-18

artAnother Semesters Week, similar to the one held last fall, is set for May 14-18. Students can attend general information sessions about semesters and demonstrations on running a Degree Audit Report. There will be invited chat periods for online students, too.  At Spring Fling on Wednesday, May 16, (May 17 for the Delaware Campus), students will receive “sweet” tips and a new semesters brochure. These tri-fold brochures will be made available to program offices, and the information contained in them will be emailed to faculty and staff in a handout format as well. The specific times and locations for Semesters Week activities will be announced soon. We need your help to finish getting our students “Semesters Ready!”

Fridays are “Bike Fridays” in May!

May is National Bike Month and Columbus State is participating by sponsoring several ride opportunities culminating in an evening of bike-themed presentations. 

If you want to try out bike commuting you may be able to ride in with some regular bike commuters who work at the Columbus campus. If you ride or bring your bike to campus you can join in leisurely lunchtime rides through downtown neighborhoods. If you want to hear or present an idea or story related to bicycling, attend or present at “The Next Big Thing: Spoke and Wheels.” This is an evening of high energy presentations in which presenters work under the constraints of 20 PowerPoint slides and 5 minutes to share a compelling idea.

You can learn about and register for the above by visiting
and cscc.edu/TNBT.

You can also network with other Columbus State bicyclists by
joining the Ohio Bike Challenge and joining the Cougar Cranks
team.  For further networking and discussion of how Columbus
State can continue to support bicycling, “like” the
Cougar Cranks Facebook page

Remember, if you have flat, repair tools can be checked
out of the Student Activities office.

Safe riding everyone!

ITDL Seminars

The SPOKEN Word: What do our students have to say?
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about a variety of free tools (i.e. SCREENR, JING, VOICE THREAD) that can be used to orally capture students' thoughts and responses. These tools can also be used as a convenient and effective method for instructors to disseminate feedback and to deliver various announcements.
Anyone who wants to vocalize an announcement (versus typing it) or wants to create short training videos will find this session helpful.

Presented by: Melissa Logue, Assistant Professor, Modern Languages
When: Friday, April 27 (9:00 - 11:00 a.m.) - Register
Where: Innovation Center CT 106

NEW Course Offering: Blackboard - Content Collection Basics
Blackboard's Content Collection is a built-in virtual hard drive that allows instructors to store course materials for easy access and deployment in a course(s). Instructors can link course content items in a course to their course's Content Collection. When an Instructor changes a content item in the Content Collection, all links to the item reflect those changes.

Come and join us to learn about Blackboard's new powerful tool that allows instructors to manage and deploy course content like never before seen here at Columbus State.
