Online Guide to Accompany Using the Vista8 Course Management System Workshop

Today, I am facilitating a session on the Vista8 course management system at Kent State University for the Department of English at the Pre-Semester Workshop. I prepared a Guide to Vista8 [currently hosted on Google Docs, , which covers many of the topics that I will discuss during the first part of the session. Also, I hope that it helps instructors after the session is over when they are setting up the online components of their writing classes.

If you have trouble viewing the Guide to Vista8 online, you can download it as a PDF from here.

Find more information and resources on the Office of Digital Composition’s website here. I will be working there in Fall 2011.

Many thanks to the participants in my workshop today.
