Serving the faculty of the University of Redlands, the Center for Digital Learning (CDL) offers professional services in instructional technology-based consultation, support, and training, to enhance both teaching and learning. Located in the Fletcher Jones Foundation Computer Center, room 112, the CDL provides the necessary infrastructure for the infusion of technology into existing teaching, as well as the development of online and hybrid offerings.
The CDL provides the necessary tools and support for the creation of video clips that may be used to augment instruction, thereby giving faculty the means to explore and implement the flipped classroom model.
The CDL has set of equipment available for loan to faculty who wish to develop learning elements in locations other than the CDL. Our “take and make” solution features a PC laptop, camera, headset, and a copy of Camtasia, a top tool for creating screen recordings, voice-over PowerPoint presentations, and more. There will be five of these “take and make” set-ups for check-out.
The CDL features a 4-6 person video conference room equipped with a camera, ceiling microphone, and a speaker system. In addition, there is an interactive whiteboard that functions as a projection screen. Faculty can control applications on the screen, write notes in digital ink, and save/e-mail their work to share later.
