SAVE THE DATE! Jan 5: Laulima V. 19 Upgrade & Tips for Instruction (Webinar)

The UH Online Innovation Center (UHOIC) will be facilitating a webinar, Laulima V. 19 Upgrade & Tips for Instruction, on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, from 10 to 11:30 am. The registration link will be sent out soon — watch for an email from the UHOIC.

The ITS Laulima team will be upgrading Laulima from version 12.7 to version 19.5 on December 27th. Laulima’s current announcement states: Upgrade to Version 19.5 (Extended Downtime) 12/27/20. Laulima will be offline starting 3:00am HST on Sunday 12/27/20 until 2:00pm HST. When Laulima resumes operation, we will be upgraded to Sakai version 19.5. Thank you for your patience regarding the downtime.

New in Laulima v. 19:

  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for sign-in — note that this is still being discussed
  • Rubrics tool
  • Gradebook tool (different from Gradebook Classic)

Updated tools in v.19:

  • Tests & Quizzes (streamlined interface — the confusing tabs “Working Copies” and “Published Copies” are gone!)
  • Assignments (added options to send 24-hr reminder emails & grade using a rubric)
  • Overview (page can be rearranged — single or double column, add or delete tools)

A frequently asked question is: Should I wait until after the Laulima Upgrade to import into the Spring semester sites? ITS has reassured us that “The login page and a few tools may look different, but for the most part, things should function similarly,” therefore, we encourage you to go ahead and set up your Spring site(s) whenever you are ready. After the Laulima upgrade, you may want to tweak a few things to take advantage of the new or updated features, but you won’t lose any data.

Stay tuned for more info to come.

Join Us @10am TODAY: Creating Community in Synchronous Class Sessions

Creating Community in Synchronous Class Sessions
Friday, Nov 6: 10:00-11:00am
Presented by Nadine Wolff

About this webinar: Teaching via Zoom creates many challenges, two of which are keeping your class engaged and creating community like you might in a F2F class. Many of us have experienced staring at those tiny black squares with the sound of crickets in the Zoom room. This webinar will highlight some ways you may build community to promote engagement and a sense of belonging in an online class with synchronous zoom sessions. In other words, how to make your Zoom room a fun and exciting space to learn in.

About Nadine: Nadine has been teaching mathematics F2F and online for twenty years and joined the KapCC community about four years ago. When she is not brainstorming zoom activities or held back by a pandemic, she likes to spend her time outdoors, in the ocean, and traveling.
