Resources/Tools

Think of this as your toolbox for innovating your classroom

Blackboard

Blackboard is the University of Richmond’s official learning management system. Visit blackboard.richmond.edu to login. Instructors can also request a Blackboard course site for an upcoming semester or request a Blackboard site when designing a new course. Your CTLT liaison can offer one-on-one help on the use of Blackboard.

UR Blogs

UR Blogs is a WordPress server that is hosted here on campus. You can create blogs for courses, projects, and more. To login, request a blog or learn more, visit blog.richmond.edu . Talk with your CTLT liaison to learn about some of the innovative uses of blogs at UR.

Lynda.com

Lynda.com is the premiere online library of instructional videos/courses teaching the latest software tools and skills, and is available faculty, staff and students taking courses for credit. There are thousands of courses available. Use http://lynda.richmond.edu to log in.

Classroom and Desktop Capture (Panopto)

Panopto is the University’s official classroom and desktop capture tool. Recordings of the classroom or providing additional asynchronous recorded instruction can be valuable to you and your students. To learn more, contact your liaison or check out our setup and quick start guides. Here is a list of classrooms that are Panopto-ready, with ceiling mics, video camera and Panopto installed on the room’s computer.

Mobile Device Initiative

Each semester, the CTLT accepts proposals from faculty that would like to incorporate iPads into their curriculum. Applications are accepted all year but we recommend submitting an application 2 months before the requested semester. We also offer iPads for short-term class projects as well. For more information, contact Andrew Bell.

Digital Storytelling

We support faculty wishing to incorporate digital storytelling into their curriculum. For more information visit: ds.richmond.edu or contact Corrina Waxman.

Classroom Response Systems

Using a classroom response system is a great way to increase class interaction and engagement. The Center of Teaching, Learning, and Technology has a number of recommended response systems that utilize student mobile devices or laptops – click here to learn more.
