william-iven-gcsNOsPEXfs-unsplash (1)In addition to minimum education requirements and teaching experience, a very common requirement or preference in online teaching job descriptions is “experience with X LMS”; X being the Learning Management System that the particular school uses.

You may have experience as an instructor or a student using one or more LMSs (and you should highlight these on your CV!). But you may find yourself without direct experience or familiarity with the “X” LMS that a job description lists. If you wanted to invest your time LMS training, where would you start? There are so many LMSs out there, where should one focus one’s efforts?

While there are a lot of LMSs in existence, it does seem that at least 4 are rising to the top as the most popular. eLearningIndustry.com lists the top 4 LMSs and my experience reading online teaching job descriptions echoes and supports this list as the four on which you might focus your training efforts. Below, I’ll list them and link you to places where you might find some good, affordable, or free training.

Blackboard. If you have been a student or an instructor in the past 10 years, I’d be quite surprised if you haven’t come across a Blackboard classroom. Indeed, Blackboard is perhaps the most commonly used LMS in higher ed today. While a lot of training happens once you have been hired by a school, there are avenues for individuals looking to increase their Blackboard navigation skills. Consider Lynda.com as a good resource. Blackboard Help also has some good, free training videos you can watch.

Moodle. Moodle is an open source LMS and as such is a very cost effective solution for most schools. Anyone who wants to offer a course on anything is able to download Moodle to their server for free. If you don’t have your own server, MoodleCloud will host a Moodle classroom for you. Signing up for a free MoodleCloud account will allow you to poke around a Moodle classroom from an instructor angle – and you might even be inspired to create your own course! LearnMoodle.com also provides a terrific Moodle overview.

Canvas. If a school doesn’t use Blackboard or Moodle, I’d put my next dollar bill on Canvas, another very popular LMS. Any efforts spent on training oneself in Canvas will likely bear some fruit. You will need to create a login, but here is a free Canvas orientation class you might find very helpful.

D2L Brightspace. Large online universities like Purdue University Global use D2L/Brightspace, so if you are choosing where to invest your time, choosing training in this LMS is wise. Lynda.com has a great training course on Brightspace and Brightspace Help offers a nice FAQ page for instructors, covering some basic usages of the site, like getting started, discussions, assignments, and quizzes.

And if you do take a training course in any of these LMSs don’t forget to list that on your CV. If a school you are applying to uses any of these LMSs, you will certainly want to drop that detail, at least parenthetically, somewhere in your cover letter!

Have any good LMS training resources to share? Please comment below!

2020planner copyHello AdjunctWorld community! And happy New Year! The year 2020 is bringing with it a new look to our AdjunctWorld weekly newsletter and, for many of us, a brand spanking new semester.

Starting the semester off on the right foot is something we all aim to do, but how exactly do we do it? I found a terrific resource out of Northern Illinois University Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center that helps set a good stage for a new term. I’ll list their suggestions here and, as always, add in my own two cents, especially with respect to online classrooms, since this article is geared toward the the on-ground classroom.

  1. Make Positive First Impressions. NIU offers several suggestions for ushering in on-ground students, but how do we make positive first impressions on our online students? We can communicate early (send an email with a hello and important orienting information a week or so before class begins), we can set up an icebreaker or introductions forum, and we can have the classroom fully ready to launch, with a complete and detailed syllabus as soon as we are able. And be ready to be available! Most questions are asked in that first week.
  2. Involve Students Quickly. Another point in the “create an introductions or icebreaker thread” column: The sooner students are engaged, the sooner their comfort level increases, especially in the online classroom. And, as we know from the research, engaged, confident online learners are the most successful ones. Be prepared to reciprocate their participation yourself.
  3. Identify the value of your course. As the NIU article states, “Not all students come to class with a clear idea of why this subject is important. You may need to help them understand the significance of the course. Do this early on so students will be ready to invest time and energy necessary for learning the subject matter” (para. 9). They offer two suggestions for doing so that can easily be translated online: Connect course with current events and a “Common Sense Inventory” – or an activity designed to debunk common myths and misconceptions in your discipline area.
  4. Clarify Learning Objectives. Along the vein of “Why is this class important”, it is also important to let students know, up front, what they will be able to do after they’ve successfully completed your course. What information will they learn? What skills will they develop? What competencies will they have acquired? And, make sure these goals align with your student’s goals by asking them what they are hoping to get from the course. If you can accommodate any individual goals that seem reasonable, make efforts to do so in your curriculum planning.
  5. Establish Rapport and Create an Inclusive Learning Environment. This is especially important in the online classroom, when the distance necessitates extra efforts at rapport establishment and inclusion. Set the stage with a professional, yet informal and genuine writing tone, be responsive to questions, and make sure that you identify the value of every student, especially as they begin to introduce themselves in the “getting to know each other” thread.

The NIU article goes on to offer some other suggestions as well, so give it a read and consider it an exercise in translating advice normally applied to the on-campus environment to the online one that you are teaching in, or are hoping to teach in.

What are some things you do in your classrooms to make sure the term starts off on the right foot? Please leave a comment below!
