Technology Guide by Function

Content Delivery 

  • Moodle is Nazareth College's learning management system. It offers faculty a centralized point to share course content as well as facilitate virtual learning activities and assessments to students. Check out our comprehensive help sites: faculty help & student help.

  • An alternative way to share content is through Google Applications for Education. Share Google docs, sheets, forms, slides etc with students through Moodle to ensure a consistent learning experience for all students.  

Digital Lecture

  • Create and share mini video lectures in your Moodle course with Echo360. This platform also allows faculty to record and share lectures delivered onsite. Transcripts are generated with each published video to ensure access for all.

  • Zoom is our supported video conferencing tool used to conduct synchronous, virtual class sessions, hold digital office hours, and to live-stream onsite classes to virtual students. Pro tip: Record mini-lectures using Zoom and share with students through the Echo360 system for a streamlined experience!

Virtual Learning & Collaboration

  • Google Apps provide endless opportunities for virtual collaboration and resource development. Immersive Technology and Applications is a new way to incorporate digital learning into face-to-face and hybrid course designs. 

  • Qualtrics is a robust survey design tool available for all faculty and students at Nazareth. Explore research, data collection, and analysis in your course with this user-friendly platform.

  • Support your students as they learn through technology. Hoonuit provides video training on programs like SPSS, iMovie, Excel which are easily embedded in a Moodle course. 

Assessment 

  • Written work submitted to the assignment activity in Moodle can use Turnitin. This tool provides information to assist faculty in determining the originality of student work.  
  • Exams adapted for online delivery using the Moodle quiz activity can be required to use Respondus LockDown Browser and virtual monitoring. These secure testing measures can help to ensure academic integrity for online exams.
