Quality Matters Training Available and Blackboard Course Quotas

Quality Matters Training:

The West Virginia Virtual Learning Network (WVVLN) has received a grant to offer additional Quality Matters training to faculty who have completed the “Applying the QM Rubric” course.  The course is “Improve Your Online Course” and is offered online at QM with various starting dates before May 31st

To register for this course, please complete this survey.  Roxann will follow-up with additional registration information.  This course is paid for by the grant and sign-up will be on a first-come, first-served basis with registration limited to participants who have completed the “Applying the QM Rubric” course.  Fairmont State still has 17 seats available in this course, and it would be nice to see them all filled.

I hope you will take advantage of this great faculty development opportunity.  Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Blackboard Quotas:

You may remember that we now have course quotas in place of 40 MB.  If you receive an error message that your course has reached the quota, please delete any duplicate or unused files in your Content Collection, and then let me know if you need additional space and I will increase your quota.
