The University of Pittsburgh has partnered with SensusAccess to offer a file converter tool that makes inaccessible documents (such as Word or PDF files) into more accessible media (such as searchable PDFs, audio MP3 files, Braille, or e-text). SensusAccess is available to all Pitt faculty, staff, students, and alumni that have an active University email address.
The first Teaching Partners meeting of the fall term is Monday, September 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m., in the University Club Gold Room. Lunch will be served. There is limited capacity so please RSVP if you plan to attend. Teaching Partners are the first to know about new resources and services available through the Teaching Center, and meet twice per term to engage in peer-to-peer learning and knowledge sharing. Even if you can’t attend the meeting, you can still join the Teaching Partners community. If you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Pittsburgh will transition to the Canvas Learning Management System in 2020. Canvas will allow instructors to deliver content in a more organized way, communicate with students through multiple channels, and grade assignments for students with better tools, along with a host of other features. Recently, Canvas representatives met with our LMS Support and Consulting team and our CSSD colleagues to begin learning how to best implement this LMS for the University community. Watch Headlines: Canvas @ Pitt video or visit our Canvas @ Pitt web page to learn more information about the resources available to you in the new learning management system.
