The Q: What support is available?

FASE is offering different types of support and training sessions via the EdTech Office. Are you looking for group training? One-on-one? We can do that!

Even though the winter semester is just ending, it's already time to start thinking about your Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Winter 2019 courses. Summer 2018 courses are available in the Q right now, and Fall courses will be available soon (in the meantime, you can start building in your demo "sandbox" course shell).

What types of training are available?

1) FASE's Quercus Migration Group Session: These sessions with be led by ACT's Matt Clare. While he'll be there to answer questions, the intention of this session is to get hand's on - we're going to get you going on actually migrating your course. This session is not an overview of the Interface, but focuses specifically on archiving your Blackboard course. Bring your lap top! Fill out this webform to  register for a Quercus Migration Group Session.

3) Self-Guided Online Resources: Many of the group training sessions are recorded and shared. You can access these, as well as other online resources on your own time, at your own speed.
