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 Student Opinion of Teaching Survey period begins on Monday, November 18. Here are some helpful tips to consider as you prepare for the survey period.
- Talk to your students about the feedback process and schedule time in class for students to complete their surveys.
- Faculty success stories show that higher response rates improve the learning experience.
- Zoom Video Conferencing is now available to all University faculty, staff, and students. You can access your enterprise account by visiting Pitt’s Zoom webpage and authenticating with your University credentials.
- Zoom is compatible with CourseWeb/Blackboard and we anticipate that it will be compatible with Canvas very soon.
- The Zoom Help Center contains a variety of resources to help you get started with using this video conferencing tool. We encourage you to view these resources for assistance with audio and video sharing, scheduling class meetings, and for a general overview of how you can use the tool to conduct synchronous meeting sessions.
- The Teaching Center has a Getting Started with Zoom page as an additional resource repository.
