HumTech is here to help with moving Humanities finals and instruction online as a result of COVID-19, and we are coordinating with all other support teams on campus.
Here is a targeted list of options for getting help with winter finals and spring-quarter course prep. When in doubt, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consultation and training resources
- email@example.com or 310-825-4864. For any request or question related to moving your finals and/or spring classes online. Monitored by a team of seven HumTech experts in tools like CCLE, Zoom, Respondus, Kaltura (for videos), etc. Request appointments for consultation here, too!
- https://ucla.zoom.us/j/865893942. 8am-5pm M-F. Dedicated Humanities remote support channel for any question or consultation with our instructional team. Requires audio capability; video is nice but entirely optional. (Note: Zoom works well on mobile devices, which have audio built in!)
- https://www.adminvc.ucla.edu/covid-19/academic-continuity/workshops. Zoom, CCLE and other workshops and drop-in slots available to all instructors, no RSVP. Staffed by experts from across campus.
- Beginning Monday 3/23: Turnitin and CCLE Online Workshop (Mon-Thurs 1-2pm) via Zoom. Led by our RITC team, they will help work through the settings of Turnitin using the CCLE integration. https://ucla.zoom.us/my/orc1040
- Beginning Monday 3/23: QB2 Quiz Bank Builder Online Workshop (Mon-Thurs 2:30-3:30pm). Led by our Instructional Programmer, Lillian Hawasli, who built the tool, she will guide you in setting it up and using it to import your question bank into CCLE. https://ucla.zoom.us/my/orc1040
- Schedule a department training! We have already visited several faculty/department meetings to do Zoom and CCLE training. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request yours. Provide desired dates/times and what you’d like us to cover. We’ll do our best to be there!
