Faculty Tutorials

These tutorials are provided to assist faculty in gaining the required proficiency with software used by Indian Hills Community College to teach online, hybrid, and many on-campus courses. These tutorials should be worked through by all faculty prior to teaching an online or hybrid course.

 

Note: Please complete the General & Student Tutorials before attempting these, as the faculty tutorials go beyond the student tutorials and assume you have already mastered those concepts and skills. The required software and screen settings necessary for viewing these tutorials are also covered there.

 

Faculty Development

The Office of Online Learning offers a variety of resources for faculty, including free access to the full Lynda.com online training library, as well as Quality-Faculty-Plan-approved classes on the effective use of educational technologies in online, hybrid, and on-campus courses. For more information and to register for faculty development classes, please visit our Online Faculty Development page.
