The TRC has several forms available for faculty so that we can support you in a timely manner. Please find the each one described below.
Please note: You must be logged into a valid SUNY Broome Faculty Gmail account to access these forms as they are located within our SUNY Broome Google Drive.
Instructional Designer Support Request Form
The TRC has implemented a new method for faculty/staff who are requesting assistance from the Instructional Designers. Beginning this semester, all questions, issues, and appointment requests are being collected through a newly created form where a ticket will be generated and the Teaching Resource Center will be notified that you need assistance. The ticket will be assigned to the next available Instructional Designer who will follow up with you. This new system will allow us to more equitably and efficiently support faculty/staff and ensure that you find a resolution in a timely manner.
Brightspace Development Shell Request Form
This form can be used to Request a Development Course Shell in Brightspace.
The Development Course Shell will contain the SUNY Template and give you a really nice starting point for rebuilding your course or developing a new course in the Brightspace environment.
Brightspace Student Incomplete Request Form
Please use this form to request that a student be granted access to your course beyond the Semester closing date. We will change the student’s role in the course to “BRM – Student Incomplete” which will allow them to continue participating in your course and finish up any work they need to.
Brightspace Third Party Tool Integration Request Form
It is the faculty member’s responsibility to collect and submit all information necessary to integrate 3rd party tools into the Brightspace environment. Failure to submit this information in a timely manner may prevent you from utilizing 3rd party materials in your Brightspace course shell. A 3rd party tool is any external web service or interactive website that students need to access from within the Brightspace environment. Third party tools typically (but not always) involve some sort of single sign-on or authentication to an outside resource. Examples of 3rd Party Tools include (but are not limited to):
- Publishers textbooks and online interactive materials
- Online lab simulations and activities that require student participation and tracking
- Online testing tools (outside of Brightspace)
- OERs and online homework (outside of Brightspace)
Request Form for Adding the Brightspace Basics Orientation Assignment to Your Course
Brightspace Basics for Students is an Orientation created by SUNY that introduces students to using the Brightspace Learning Management System. It is a great activity for students to complete prior to the start of the semester to give them a head start in their learning. The Instructional Designers in the TRC have created an assignment that can easily be incorporated into your course. This assignment simply instructs students to complete the Brightspace Basics for Students Orientation and submit, to you, the certificate of completion that they receive. Whether or not you give points for the assignment is up to you. We have found, however, that a small extra-credit reward or counting it as homework or other assignment does increase student participation! We have made the process for adding the “Brightspace Basics Student Orientation Assignment” very easy for you to do! Simply use the form below to request it, and one of the Instructional Designers will copy it into the assignments area of your course. All we need is your name and in which course you would like the assignment copied. We will not assign points to the assignment or link it to your content area or grade book. It will be hidden from students by default until you decide to make it visible to them.
OSCQR Course Review Request Form
The Instructional Designers are available to provide you with a review of your online or blended course using the Open SUNY Course Quality Review rubric. The focus of the review is on the design, functionality, navigation, and accessibility of the content you present to students and is not an evaluation of your content itself. Please use the form above to request an OSCQR review. Once the review is assigned, the Instructional Designer will create a copy the course you identify into a master shell, as it is not good practice to review a live course in which students are actively working. You can then make any needed changes in your master course and use that to roll into your course shells in future semesters.
