Rapid WyoCourses Design Workshops

We have two new Rapid WyoCourses Design Workshops:
Monday, August 25 1-3pm and Tuesday, August 26 9-11am in BU 127
The rapid WyoCourses design workshops are intended to get faculty up and running with WyoCourses as quickly as possible. Each two two hour session will give you hands on assistance with setting up basic functionality for your course such as syllabus, modules, discussions, announcements, assignments and much more. Please bring your laptop, power cord and course materials: draft syllabi, course schedules, assignments, etc.”
