AA:01A-R CATE Workshop Series - Overview
Bill Stone, CATE

CATE, the Center for Advanced Technology in Education, offers a series of training workshops related to SRJC's "Sisters" courseware application for online classes and traditional classes with online content. Because sessions are may be over-enrolled, they are subject to cancellation or postponement; please be sure to reserve your place in advance.

The workshops are arranged so that the earliest ones cover the easiest and most commonly used modules, while the later workshops cover the more advanced modules. For example, almost everyone can easily understand and utilize personal homepages, which are covered in the first workshop. On the other hand, class message boards and gradebooks are more sophisticated and not utilized by as many instructors, so they're not covered until the final two workshops.

Each workshop also builds on material presented in the previous sessions, so they need to be taken in the designated sequence.
