Description of our presentations (40 minutes for the first one, 20 for the second):
Responsive Design 101
Responsive design is an approach to web design that allows pages to respond to the size of the user’s device (cell phones, tablets, TV’s, and smart watches). Responsive design requires a new way of thinking about the user interface, not to mention the coding behind the scenes. This session is an explanation of the basics of responsive design. You’ll leave understanding the common terms and why modern web pages look the way they do. And just a touch of what happens behind the scenes, no web developer Ph.D’s required.
Our speaker is Ronna Johnston, Director of Web Communications, who is coordinating the project to move all UNC sites to a content management system, new design, and new navigation structure.
Web conferencing through Microsoft 365
“Skype for Business” or “Lync,” is the Microsoft web conferencing tool that UNC is utilizing and that, in many cases, is overriding the current “Collaborate” associated with BlackBoard. We will demonstrate its usefulness and how it was adopted at UNC.
Our speaker is Robin Weber, Instructional Designer for the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning
A 3-D printer will be on display (but not functioning) and Robin Weber can answer questions about 3-D printing.
eLCC Survey Review (30 minutes?). With the efforts of David Kendrick, Jeff Getchell, and Cheryl Comstock, the eLCC survey to the membership has been reproduced and will be presented by David and Educational Technology PhD student, Haya Albaqami, who has loaded the survey into the Qualtrics online survey tool.
During lunch, student’s from David’s UNC Ed Tech course would like to sit with their designated interviewees, some members of eLCC, to complete their interview assignment. They are all international students from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and five student scholars from the PhD Ed Tech program at Kasetsart University in Thailand. Feel free to converse with them.
