Instructional & Campus Technologies helps students become Connected@Elon

Instructional and Campus Technologies held its 6th annual Connected@Elon event on Aug. 26 during New Student Orientation.

Created to help incoming students learn about the technology available to them on campus, Connected@Elon includes games and prizes, and an interactive presentation.

Scott Hildebrand, assistant director of Teaching and Learning Technologies, quizzed students on technology resources available to them on campus. Questions included information on viewing course materials in Moodle, using OnTrack to register for courses, and finding technology help by either calling the Technology Help Desk at 336-278-5200 or visiting an elite student in Belk Library.

The highlight of Connected@Elon was Michael Vaughn, instructional technologist in Teaching and Learning Technologies, taking the stage to present Online Living and Learning. Vaughn’s presentation shared valuable tips on digitally communicating with faculty, addressed managing your personal profile and the consequences of over sharing on social networks, and stressed the importance of making time for your personal and academic relationships.

Students walked away with an understanding of the ways they can stay “Connected @ Elon” and what information should be shared online. To learn more about ways you can stay “Connected@Elon,” visit our “New to Elon” section on the Technology website.
