Designers of PDF documents take great pride in creativity and visual appeal. Did you know that PDFs can be accessible to readers with disabilities without sacrificing design? And when your materials are accessible, you’ll reach a wider and more diverse audience. Join this webinar to see how accessible PDF design is responsible, inclusive, and – yes – attractive.
Unable to attend the webinar? No worries! A recording will be available on the webinar’s Event Page approximately one week after the webinar. An announcement will be sent when the recording is available.Register

Simple and easy to use, our Swivl robotic tripod system is available for check out. Faculty may borrow our Swivl kit (Swivl mount, iPad) to record themselves teaching. Finished recordings can be saved or shared with others via Google Drive (no internet required to record). This is a great tool if you are having trouble scheduling peers to sit in on your class for peer reviews. The Swivl kit comes with an iPad for recording the video and wireless microphones to capture student questions and responses. The Swivl base moves the iPad (camera) to always keep you in the frame as you move about the room teaching. Check out our previous post illustrating the differences between a video camera, stationary iPad and iPad mounted on Swivl. Please contact Brent (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Educational Media Center if you are interested in checking out Swivl.
We kicked off the fall 2018 semester on Monday, August 13 with Tech It Out Day, a half-day event to explore how technology can enhance teaching and learning in the classroom and online. There were four tracks of four 30 minute hands-on sessions with about 60 faculty and staff participating. It was also a time to reconnect with each other after the summer break.
Session topics included:
I participate in tech it out day to see how others are using technology in their classrooms trying to visit those presentations that I think might possibly be useful in my teaching.
I liked the fact that the sessions covered online feedback; in class activity interaction; creating videos for students and creating websites.
I really enjoyed the sessions. The length of the sessions were perfect to get just enough to decide whether you need more assistance. Most of the sessions had a hands-on component that was really helpful. Thank you!
Thank you for having Tech it Out day! It’s really amazing to find out what’s out there to make life easier for people.
We hope you join us at next year’s Tech It Out Day… maybe even as a facilitator! The call for proposals will be emailed in March 2019.
