Expert on virtual reality believes its higher ed impacts are still developing

This interview with Jeremy Bailenson on VR in higher education hints at the work ahead. We've used the field trip model here at Oxford College of Emory University in Art History, German, and soon Geology courses.

insidehighered.com Jeremy Bailenson, a Stanford professor who's dedicated his career to developing and studying virtual reality, thinks the tool is slowly but surely asserting itself in the higher ed classroom.


We're finally on Twitter! Follow us and keep up with adventures in Academic Tech!


It's that time of year again! We're looking forward to seeing all the students on campus tomorrow morning, but we know how much has to happen before that first day of class. Let us know how we can help with your Canvas course, classroom technology, and any projects you may be thinking about. See you around the quad!


A big thank you to this year's Teaching and Learning with Technologies Institute (TLTI) participants - LaTonia Taliaferro-Smith, Gwendolynne Reid, Alicia DeNicola, Sarah Paglioni Fankhauser, & Reza Saadein. We loved working with you and are looking forward to a productive summer!


On Tuesday we had the privilege of presenting our work on Virtual Reality in the Humanities at an EDUCAUSE Learning Initiatives (ELI) virtual conference. Thank you, Tasha Dobbin-Bennett and Lisa Ward for their continued efforts in this trail-blazing technology. The presentation was well-received and put Oxford College on the stage with MIT, Brown, and Penn State.


Next up, the Teaching and Learning with Technology Institute...because the Academic Tech team never stops!


Good graduation morning!

As many of you know, in the fall the university began piloting a plagiarism detection tool called Unicheck within Canvas. If you are using Unicheck and a student submission has a high similarity score with another document in our institutional library (a database of Oxford/Emory student work that has been run through the application), here are some important issues to keep in mind:

• To protect student privacy, plagiarism detection software won’t allow faculty access to the “source” document with which your student’s submission matched. You will only see the title of the source document. If that title reveals anything about the student—last name, for example—please keep this information confidential.

• No one in Academic Technology or IT on either campus can communicate with faculty about the source document. Honor Council will make the appropriate request to retrieve that document and determine further action.

If you have questions about how to set up Unicheck, need help interpreting its originality report, or are curious about best practices for using plagiarism detection software in general, please contact Lisa Ward ([email protected]) in Academic Technology.

We are currently experiencing a slowdown of Canvas and are working with the vendor to correct the issue. At this time logging in is possible, but Canvas times out when trying to enter courses. We noticed this around 9:30 this morning.


Creating Big Blue Button Conferences: Canvas Training - Public Course

Good morning Oxford Faculty!

With today’s weather hampering our first day of classes we wanted you to know that you have an option available to help ease the disruption. Through the Conferences tab in Canvas, you can record a lecture, talk through your syllabus, or let your students know what to expect in their up-coming Spring course. The links below can help guide you, but we are available to help if you have questions! Email us directly or at [email protected] if you run into trouble.

What is the Conferences Tab Used for? (also called BigBlueButton)
- Instructors may stream lectures (audio, PC Screen) directly through Canvas
- Recordings are kept only for two weeks

What is required?
- A computer with high-speed internet connection and microphone
- The “Conferences” link in your Canvas course should be activated
- Headset with microphone works best, if available

EDUCAUSE Research Snapshot

This infographic summarizes the data collected from 11,141 faculty members and 35,760 students from over 100 institutions. One Academic Tech focus this spring is to increase communication about how specific technologies can benefit our students. Our previous projects include metrics to measure outcomes, and we want to use that data to help you make the best decisions for your courses. Do you see anything surprising about the data that you think may, or may not, apply to Oxford?

er.educause.edu Previewing the 2017 findings of the EDUCAUSE Technology Research in the Academic Community (ETRAC) series.


The Pierce classrooms are light-filled, versatile, and ready for the Spring semester. If you're teaching in one of these rooms in the upcoming term, let us show you the new space. Schedule a 15-minute walk through of your new classroom before the semester begins by emailing anyone on the Academic Tech team. We're looking forward to seeing you back on campus very soon!


Wishing you a happy holiday season from our family to yours! See you in January!


Hi, everyone! A quick Canvas tip: make sure to enter a zero into your gradebook for missed assignments. If you don't enter anything and there's a dash in your gradebook column, that assignment just gets skipped over and your total won't be correct. Happy grading, folks!


The end of the semester is in sight!


Happy Halloween from your friends at Academic Tech!


It's a great morning for a free breakfast from Bread and Butter! Come to Candler hall and support the Chaplaincy Fund from 9-10:30. Thanks to the OSO for sponsoring this event, and to Lyn Pace for his work helping our community. See you soon!



The Chaplaincy Fundraiser is right around the corner and critically important to helping the Oxford Community. Please join us Friday, October 27th from 9-10:30am for a free breakfast in Rathskeller and catered by Bread and Butter. The money raised for the fund helps Faculty, Staff, and Students when they need it most. There will be baskets raffled off, as we did last year, and we will be accepting donations via cash, check, or card at the event.

If you are new to Oxford, take a minute and watch this message from Oxford's Chaplain, Lyn Pace. We're looking forward to seeing you next Friday!


Hi, all. We'll be sending something around via EaglePost a bit later in the semester, but we have a message for our early birds now. If you see your Spring course shells on Canvas, don't add anyone to them at the moment; doing so might cause an issue that will sadden our Canvas admins. Thanks for your help!


We've enjoyed working with Jessie Campo Rivers on the set for this years Fall play! Opening day is October 19th and the show is shaping up to be a good one.


Good morning and happy Friday! We'll be leading Excel workshops until 3pm today. It's not too late to schedule your fall workshops, so let us know how we can help.


Happy belated birthday to Brian Stocks! You're the best person "behind the curtain", and we couldn't do what we do without you!
