3 Small Things That Make a Big Difference

Icon Tip Clip

What you do in the virtual classroom makes a big difference for students.  Check out this month’s Tip Clip to learn more about how you can create a more personalized online classroom and in turn promote student retention.

While you are in the RCTLE eUnion, be sure to contribute to the active discussions with your colleagues. 

Did You Notice?

The RCTLE Resource Site (note: became the RCTLE eUnion in 2020) is in the process of transitioning over.  RCTLE is working hard to combine resources for everything from academic technology to teaching and learning strategies accessible in one place for all faculty.  The first step in gathering all of these resources together for you is the creation of a new site called the eUnion.  This site is already up and running for you to explore.  You will still be able to access your past discussion topics and Tip Clips in the Discussion area along with many other additions to help you with teaching strategies and tools to enhance your online classroom.  Please remember, this site is still under construction, and new content will be added regularly.  Please continue to check back with us as we expand the site.

New Gradebook Posting Policy in Canvas

A new grade book posting policy was implemented in Canvas on July 13th that allows instructors to control when grades are made available to students. Although a great addition to the functionality of the online grade book, it inadvertently affected the visibility of existing grades.  Fix the error with the Grade Book posting policy. Change the notifications settings in Canvas. We recommend that you set your announcement notifications to “Notify me right away” (the green checkmark).  This will ensure that you never miss out on an important announcement again.


The mission of the Rothwell Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence is to empower faculty members in their pursuit of professional growth through diverse offerings for the universal goal of student success.
