As a Hybrid instructor you need to stay abreast of new technologies, updates and changes to the LMS, maintain currency in best practices for Online Learning, and viewing updates from the Office of Online Learning. The OL staff offer many workshops, demonstrations, and open sessions throughout the year to help you maintain your currency with new technologies and best practices for online teaching and learning. We also create and maintain a library of online videos, tutorials, and resources to help you complete various OL related tasks. The OL staff will send important information via the Blackboard NCCC Online Learning Faculty User Group and send a copy to your NCCC college email. As an OL instructor you are expected to read those messages.
