Preparing to Teach Online at UH (PTTO) module is now hosted on SCORM Cloud!

Preparing to Teach Online at UH Module

You asked, we listened! The ability to save content progress has been a feature that many PTTO participants have been asking for since the module first rolled out. After looking at a number of solutions, we decided to use SCORM Cloud as the new hosting platform for the PTTO module. SCORM Cloud not only allows for content progress to be saved but also for other integrations that were not possible with our previous hosting method. This change will open up many new possibilities to enhance the PTTO module and we hope you look forward to seeing those changes in the near future.

If you have any questions about SCORM Cloud or changes to the PTTO module, please email uhoic@hawaii.edu. We always love hearing from you!

Fantastic UHOIC Website Focus Group Feedback!

On November 2nd, we convened a focus group in which a small group of individuals met synchronously to share their user experiences of navigating through the UHOIC website and provided very useful suggestions on how we could improve the design, navigation, and online resources of the UHOIC website. 

We are so blessed to have such fantastic faculty and staff across the UH system who continuously volunteer their time to help improve the quality of online learning at UH. Great discussions were had with a great group of people! 

Mahalo to Brenda Coston from Honolulu Community College, Rheta Kuwahara from University of Hawai’i at Mānoa and Brent Hirata from Leeward Community College for sharing their thoughts, experiences, and useful suggestions. We will seek to implement their ideas in the upcoming months.
