June’s Online Learning Webinar, hosted by instructional technologist Jackie Wickham, was a demo of Blue Jeans, Northwestern’s new web conferencing software that integrates with Canvas. Online faculty in the School of Professional Studies are encouraged to use Blue Jeans to host synchronous class meetings or meetings with students. Beginning in the Fall 2016 quarter, Blue Jeans will be the default option for web conferencing at SPS; faculty wishing to use Adobe Connect will need to request an account by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

The next Online Learning Webinar will take place Wednesday, July 6 at noon (CST). Instructional technologist William Guth will present on Group Video Projects.
