Volunteers needed – content creation testing

The DEIT team is looking for faculty members willing to help us test some tools that can be used to create interactive content. Options range from interactive PowerPoint presentations to fully online modules similar to what you may have experienced taking the Active Shooter Preparedness (ALICE) training. As part of the testing you’ll be paired with a member of the DEIT team. Faculty will provide the content of the module. The DEIT staff will be responsible for suggesting the correct tool and creating the learning object.

Among the tools being considered are:

We’re hoping to start creating content in November. To volunteer, please contact DEIT by emailing deit@desales.edu or calling 610-282-1100 x2290.
