Teaching and Learning
Rensselaer students may need to use iClicker personal response devices in their classes in order to participate in taking class attendance, offering feedback during class discussions, or taking online pop quizzes.
Rensselaer's Learning Management System allows professors, TAs and other instructors to set up and manage the online course materials that are available to their students.
Instructors may request to have course work captured and cataloged using MediaSite, Webex and/or through Blackboard (LMS).
Rensselaer Computer Science faculty and their active students use Submitty to streamline homework submission and grading.
Blackboard, Rensselaer's campus Learning Management System, or LMS, now has Webex integration which not only allows students to work in Webex "teams," but gives instructors a chance to host virtual meetings and conduct online office hours.
