UKIT's Academic Technology Group has developed several poster templates to assist faculty, staff, and students with research poster design. In addition to the template, each file also contains an introduction slide or page with instructions and additional graphic elements that can be used as desired. All graphic elements, including poster headline and section header styles, may be mixed and matched to suit each researcher's needs and preferences.
Creating and teaching a course with Adobe Connect shouldn't be overwhelming, so we've divided up what you need to know into three simple sections. Start with Getting Access to Adobe Connect, then browse the other areas to get information and tips you can use before, during, and after your course. In each section, you'll find links to written instructions, video tutorials, and QuickStart guides that will help you get ready to go in no time!
This document has three main sections. To jump directly to a section, select a link!
Welcome to the Fall 2013 eTextbook Pilot at the University of Kentucky!
Based on student feedback from previous pilots, we've compiled this brief FAQ to address the most common questions students had about the Courseload digital textbook reader. If you want specific instructions for using a particular feature, the "More Info" links at the end of each answer connect you to that feature in the Courseload student help guide.
Blackboard is the learning management system (LMS, sometimes also referred to as a course management system) that has been selected by the University of Kentucky. Blackboard provides instructors with a web presence, but does not require them to know web programming.
How can I use it?
Blackboard is an asynchronous teaching tool, meaning that participants do not have to be simultaneously connected.
Welcome back, everyone! As you have no doubt already noticed, this Fall 2012 brings a new website and lots of extra content for you! Feel free to take a look around and see what's new - this quick introduction to the website might give you some ideas!

One of the most important changes to note is that Blackboard has been upgraded. Don't worry; it's the same old Blackboard with a new look, quicker navigation, and more grading options. To learn more about some of the new features, please read our New in Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 8 page. If your students need help, feel free to refer them to our Student Information Guide.
Need help preparing your research posters? We've added a Research Posters page, which includes free poster templates, UK graphics and logos, preparation instructions, and local printing services.
We're constantly adding new videos to YouTube, so check out the UK TechClips channel to stay updated with the latest tutorials and event recordings. You can also find these videos at UKIT on iTunes U.
Finally, if you need account access, a secondary instructor added to a course, or a fresh development shell, we still offer a quick and easy self-service forms for requesting service for Adobe Connect, Blackboard, and TurningPoint ResponseWare!

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) uses advanced encryption and tunneling to create a private connection to the UK Network from any other point on the internet. This enables users to transmit data between remote computers and UK systems securely. Using a VPN also provides a remote computer with a UK IP address, allowing users to access protected computer systems within the UK Network firewall, such as a desktop office computer or secure campus server, just as if they were physically on UK's campus.
