1:00-2:00pm Stable Linking and Accessibility Considerations Kristen Lee and Heidi Schroeder Although many understand the value of sharing online library resources such as e-journal articles, e-book chapters, or streaming media in D2L or other course-related materials, the process for doing so is not intuitive or transparent. To complicate matters, copyright compliance and licensing agreements require the use of appropriate stable links for integration of proprietary content in a course. This Stable Links for Electronic Resources workshop will guide participants through the process of integrating journal articles, e-book chapters, or streaming media into their course(s). Instructions for creating stable links in various platforms will be provided and participants will gain hands-on experience in successfully integrating stable links into D2L and other course-related materials.
1:00 - 3:00 pm Teams - SharePoint Site Todd Ring / Michael Julian A live Virtual Instructor-Led Training session that will examine the Teams SharePoint site. Learn about accessibility and explore how to upload, share, and sync documents; add and edit site pages; and create lists. The modern experience in SharePoint is designed to be compelling, flexible and faster, making it easier for anyone to create beautiful, dynamic sites and pages that are mobile-ready.
2:00-4:00 pm An Introduction to ArcGIS Online for Classroom Instruction and Research Amanda Tickner In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of ArcGIS Online, a simple browser-based tool for making maps with data. Because this tool is browser based and requires no software to be installed, has built-in datasets, and is easy to use, it is well suited for classroom use. Participants will learn how to make an MSU account for access, how to add points to a map from a spreadsheet, how visualize data in a map, find data for comparison within ArcGIS Online, and to style and export their maps from the application.  Using ArcGIS in classroom curricula and other sources of spatial data will also be discussed. As time permits, other ESRI ArcGIS browser-based applications that complement ArcGIS Online such as the web presentation tool StoryMaps and the online spatial survey tool, Survey 123 will be briefly demonstrated.
