Wake Tech eLearning Intro – Even A President Can Do It


All right Jessica Hatcher is with me
today to help me as a president get into our e-learning intro because I
understand this has been set up in a way that is so easy even a president can do
it. So thank you Jessica for being here. We’re maintaining an appropriate social
distance, but she’s helping me to for the first time get into the Wake Tech
elearning intro. So here we are at the Wake Tech page you see all the
information that helps students get to all the information they need about our
covid response plans, but now we’re going to go to where we’re gonna log into the
blackboard home page all right you’re gonna want to select the login button at
the top right of the Wake Tech homepage and select blackboard from the menu that
opens. All right so login button top right page Wake Tech homepage there we go blackboard first one that comes up come
on computer will accept that and you said next what we’ll do now is select
the login button in the middle of the page and it’s right there big and blue
I’ll hit that and from here you’re gonna use your Wake Tech key account
information to log in the username should include your full Wake Tech email
address so once you’ve logged into blackboard you should see a list of
courses that you’re enrolled in as a student and you should see that elearning intro course in the list there just select that course to open over here I
see it elearning intro there’s e-learning intro elearning intro 3.0 courses quick
view so I’m going to hit ELI for ELI elearning intro 3.0 now it comes up
getting started welcome to e-learning intro I think I’m in here yes sir so the
e-learning intro course is set up with three different modules and each module you
have to score a grade of 90 or higher on each module so to begin you’ll
select the lessons menu item on the on the left side of the screen ok where it
says lessons modules yes ok someone click lessons modules it takes me to a
welcome video yes so that video will give you a little bit of a tour of the
course and explain how the course works and how you’ll move your way through the
course ok I’m just gonna play this video just a
second just to get a sense welcome to elearning intro. This online Student
Orientation program is designed to help you succeed in online courses. we will
watch that later. now if you scroll down just a little bit further you should see
the first lesson module folder and if you select that to open it to select the
link it is hyperlinked right here is what you’re telling me right and I press
that and there we go I’m into the module right now the first item that you’ll see
in the course is the pretest and there’s a pretest in all three modules of the
course if students take the pretest and pass it with a grade of 90 then they’ll
be able to proceed to the next module okay so that’s testing me to see if I
already know the information I’m getting ready to be presented because if I get a
90 or more basically I know it I can move on yes so I’m gonna select that by
toggling right over that hyper link takes me to begin lesson module one. select click begin to start click cancel
and quit so do I begin yes you begin it’s important to note the pretest only
has one attempt so if you don’t score a 90 or higher on the pretest and what
you’ll see as you see on your screen you get a warning badge that pops up
informing you that you need to go back through the lessons to review them and
in the lessons there are some videos and simulation activities and
self-assessment activities the students can work through to prepare for the
post-test at the end of the lesson ok that time I completed successfully
completed the post-test after receiving that the information through the content
and now I can move on to lesson 2 which is really about using the computer right
yes that’s so I won’t get into all of this but it looks like it’s asking me
different things about whether I use a Mac or a PC what are some of the other
things that we’ll be in a lesson in module 2 in lesson 2 this is where we’re
going to review some of the more important computer skills so file
management and organization Saving your files in a format that
your student your instructors can access them and we’ll go a little bit through
updating applications on your computer and making sure that your device is
ready to go so as we get module 1 was really the mindset the expectations for
doing eLearning and in module 2 really gets into some of the nuts and bolts of
setting up your computer and being technically ready yes so let’s assume
then I finished that content and we move on to module 3 module 3 is going to get
into blackboard which is our learning management system or some would call it
an LMS and that’s going to give me the ins and outs of how to work with
blackboard for all for our online programs is that right yes so you’ll
have some opportunities to practice using some of the communication
some blackboard and goes through some of the steps some of the more common things
that you’ll see in your online classes at Wake Tech well one of the things I’ve
been able to see thanks to your help I really appreciate you being here is that
this is very intuitive once you get through module one you start to get the
hang of it but once it going working through module one module two module
three you’ve really you may not feel have everything you need and we will
have call numbers all the time where you will be able to call to Wake Tech to get
that information to get that one-on-one assistance but with this e-learning
intro you now can walk through and be ready mentally free learning be ready to
set up your computer for e-learning and be ready to learn through our learning
management system blackboard to be able to be successful so if you haven’t had a
chance to access Eli yet our e-learning by our e-learning intro then now’s the
time to do it so now as we get ready at this extended spring break move into
this transition online you should be ready and be able to access now this is
really helpful I think thanks for coming in today it really is so easy even a
president can do it.
