CTL Workshop: “Using Vocat for Online Instruction”
October 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Are you thinking about how to do virtual instruction in time for Baruch’s Online Learning Week (November 5-11)? Vocat is here to help. Vocat is a web application managed by the CTL that allows faculty and students to upload videos, images, or audio files which can then be annotated and assessed. In this workshop, we will demonstrate Vocat’s features and uses, and discuss how it can be applied to virtual instruction or asynchronous online assignments. You do not need to have prior experience in Vocat in order to attend.
What is Vocat?
The Vocat is a web application managed by the Center for Teaching and Learning that helps Baruch students become confident, dynamic public speakers. Both a teaching tool and an assessment instrument, VOCAT enables faculty members to document quantitative and qualitative feedback on video recorded student performances. Vocat gives students easy access to their videos and scores from across their academic career, and provides a space to engage in online conversations with instructors about their progress over time.
