Episode 9 of BiblioTech: Course websites

Why aren't you doing more with your course website?


Welcome to BiblioTech – the podcast about emerging technologies for academics. Your host is Rochelle Mazar, an Emerging Technologies Librarian at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Every month you can listen in as Rochelle talks about what’s new in technology and what academics should be paying attention to. It’s hard to keep up all of the new software, tools and gadgets. That’s where Rochelle comes in.

Episode 9 – Course Websites

If you teach a class, you inevitably have to maintain a course website. Posting assignments, notes and office hours is helpful to students – but you could do so much more!

In this episode Rochelle tells you about five things you can do to make life easier for you and your students. No need to stay up until 2 a.m. every night banging out HTML code – these modifications are so simple, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do them last year! (Running time: 15:46 mins).

    Thank you for such great advice. As we start teaching I believe it is great to have access to resources. Loved the fact that I could read the tips and remember them! 🙂
