Topic A7: Identifying and Assessing Available Technologies - Additional Resources

WebCT offers online academic communities which enable you to register (even if you do not teach with WebCT) and ask questions of your colleagues in your discipline. WebCT's online Faculty Community focuses on such topics as:

1) I want to find materials for inclusion in my course.

2) I want to see other courses designed in WebCT.

3) How do I become a better online teacher?

4) I want to find help for my students.
