Butler University Center for Academic Technology Presents: iPads

TODAY from 3pm – 4pm in JH048 we will have our next installment of the Teaching and Learning with Technology Series.
iPads

Wednesday, April 18, 3-4pm John Lucich, College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

The Physician Assistant program began a new mobile technology initiative evaluating the iPad 2 in the classroom. Join John Lucich as he updates on how the program is progressing and how he has used the iPad in the areas of teaching, service and scholarship.

Unattended Panopto Uploads

The Panopto Recorder program in Windows has an option (enabled by default) that will allow the recorder to upload recordings even when the program itself is closed. It does this by running the recorder as a Windows service, and this service persists through logout.

As a result, there is no need to remain logged on to a Windows machine while the recorder is uploading; it will proceed normally regardless.

PLEASE NOTE: As this is dependent on running the recorder as a Windows service, this is not a capability that the Mac OS X Panopto Recorder currently has; Mac recordings will still need to be attended until uploads are complete. Additionally, this is an option present in the Panopto Recorder (for manual recordings), not the Remote Recorder (for automated recordings).

Center for Academic Technology Showcase!!!

Win an iPad 2 at the Center for Academic Technology Showcase TODAY from 4-6 p.m. in JH048.

Join the Center for Academic Technology as we showcase our redesigned collaboration space in Jordan Hall 048. This room has been re-purposed to facilitate faculty and staff development, training sessions, meetings and rich media exploration.

Faculty and Staff members are welcome to gather here (24/7 via card access) to discuss the use of technology in education while having close access to CAT staff for consultation. This event also showcases various innovative projects that highlight how faculty have captured the intersection of pedagogy and technology in meaningful ways.

Come and explore this new space and learn more about the Center for Academic Technology and what we have to offer you. We will also have open registration for our summer faculty and staff development workshops and there will be a drawing for an iPad 2 at 5:45 p.m. One lucky faculty member and one staff member will be given an iPad 2. Information Technology staff are not eligible for the iPad 2 drawing. All entrants must be present to win!  The iPad 2 remains the property of Butler University and must be returned when you leave the employment of Butler University.

Your opinion matters!!!

Faculty – we would like to know what you think about the look and feel of three laptops that IT is considering for purchase.  These are available for you to look at, touch, lift, poke, etc. in CAT until Tuesday afternoon.  Please drop by and check it out and leave us a note (on the paper by the laptops) about what you think of them.
