May 2016: ITS Connect
Integrating Open Educational Resources into the classroom, an Edublogs update, a Digital Measures makeover, and more.
Open Educational Resources: Did you know instructors have access to free course materials? Integrate OER into your lesson plan this spring. Pace Library's Open Access LibGuide is a collection of open access (free) resources. This includes e-journals, e-books, and miscellaneous other resources such as:
- >> OER Commons: https://www.oercommons.org
- >> OpenStax College: https://www.openstaxcollege.org
- >> Karger Open Access Journals: http://www.karger.com/OpenAccess

Edublogs Replaces WordPress: WordPress services were migrated to Edublogs services over the winter break. This migration provides a stable blog environment that is managed and monitored to ensure valid and secure features, such as themes and plugins, are evaluated and applied appropriately. Edublogs also offers a community where users can discuss new features and questions along with a wide array of training support documents, guides, and tutorials. Learn more here.
Wednesday Webinars: Academic Technologies' Webinar Wednesdays series offers an in-depth look at technologies related to teaching and learning. Webinars focus on a specific technology and offer best practices, tips, tutorials, and suggestions. For more information and updated schedules, go to www.pace.edu/webinars.
Digital Measures Makeover: Please visit http://www.pace.edu/digitalmeasures on the Academic Technologies' Digital Toolkit to access a video tour of the new user interface and see additional resources on the new UI. For questions regarding this update, please contact the Office of Academic Technologies via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
