The Mid-Pacific Information and Communications Technologies (MPICT) Center was created with funding from the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education program to coordinate, improve and promote ICT education, with an emphasis on 2-year colleges, in northern California, northern Nevada, southern Oregon, Hawaii and the Pacific Territories.

Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) is a term, widely used outside the U.S. and in the U.N., to encompass all rapidly emerging, evolving and converging computer, software, networking, telecommunications, Internet, programming and information systems technologies.

This one-day workshop will provide hands-on opportunities to learn to use Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) to improve ICT education: through online department meetings, online faculty office hours, remote guest lectures, and, ultimately, teaching simultaneously to students in-person in the classroom, to students synchronously and interactively online, and to students asynchronously online. This allows you to reach and better serve more students; make more classes run; and achieve better student, teacher and department outcomes.

Hawaii community colleges already have licenses for Blackboard Collaborate, so use of this tool is free to Hawaii community college faculty. Come learn by doing how to use this great tool! (Attendees will be asked to activate licenses and view orientation videos prior to the workshop.)
