L&S Media Services Offered
D2L (Desire to Learn) is the course management system used for all UW-Whitewater courses, including regular classes, online classes, and hybrid classes.
We are available to help faculty create, update and manage D2L courses. We can show you how to set up your courses, upload content, create assignments, quizzes, and tests, and utilize the extra features such as the discussion board.
Technology can be the perfect ally or a bitter enemy. Need help? We're here for you! If you need computer support, upgrades, or new technology, we can help with that. Having issues with services like email, password, or printing? We can assist you with that! Our Tech Liaison from the Helpdesk is here to help with everything from printer issues to setting up and reimaging computers so that they are up-to-date and use the latest technology we have available.
L&S Media is available for making updates and changes to department, advising and audience pages on the College of Letters and Sciences site, as well as creating new pages for programs or instructional initiatives.
We also offer the ability to sit down and walk through various applications like Blogs and My Profile to assist you with making your own changes and updates. Our goal is to help empower faculty and staff and allow them to make their own changes and updates easily, effectively, and conveniently.
Video Editing and Recording
L&S Media will support face to face and online courses through creation of instructional video, closed captioning of video (as an approved accomodation for students with disabilities), and streaming of instructional video for online classes.
Second Life: Support and Development
L&S Media supports teaching using virtual worlds such as Second Life. We can build instructional spaces and experiential learning activities to support traditional, hybrid and online classes. Please visit our Second Life webpage or contact Barbara Z. Johnson for more information or to get started using Second Life for your course. An application to use Second Life for your course can be found here.
