Course Technology Requirements

Heading 1

 Slack

This format is an online workspace that will enable us to come together as a group to engage directly by sharing work, accessing documents, exchanging ideas, and documenting class attendance.  You will be able to have access to class agendas, assignments, and handouts, and more importantly you will be able to engage with your instructor in real-time and in group conversations to help you understand and process the CDA competency standards more clearly. An invitation to join us in SLACK will be sent to you upon receipt of your registration payment.

Zoom

   This tool will allow us to engage in video-conferencing in a virtual classroom right from the comfort of your home.  This is a distance education platform.  You will be invited to join your Zoom classroom by clicking a link and utilizing a code to enter your session.  We will utilize this service to broadcast any live instruction in real time and recordings for future access. The conference sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to engage live with your instructor to explain assignments, review the agenda, and process with you, your understanding of the CDA Competency Standards

Google docs

May be used for quizzes, assessments, and some handouts.  Fillable documents will be uploaded in Slack for easy access and use.  You will be guided when and how to access google documents.
