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.
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.
Blackboard Export Preparation Shell Request Form
There are several things you can do in Blackboard now to prepare your course for migration to the Brightspace Learning Management System. The first step is to make a copy of your course in a Blackboard shell created specifically for the preparation process. That way, you are not making changes to a live course or one that contains past student data. We are referring to these copies as “Export Preparation” shells. Please use this form to request a Blackboard Export Preparation shell that you can use to get your course ready for the upcoming migration to Brightspace
Brightspace Account Request Form
Please use this form to request an account to access the SUNY Broome Brightspace Environment! You will need this account in order to complete the required Brightspace training offered by SUNY as well to migrate or build your courses in Brightspace for the Winter/Spring 2023 semester and beyond.Once your Brightspace account is created, you will receive an email from the Teaching Resource Center with instructions for accessing Brightspace.
Brightspace Development Shell and Blackboard Course Migration Request Form
This form can be used to either:
1) 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.
2) Request that we migrate an existing Blackboard course to Brightspace for you.
We will perform the initial migration of the content into a Brightspace “Conversion” shell where you can clean up and put the finishing touches on your course, making it ready to copy it into your semester-based shell when it becomes available.
Note: If requesting that an existing course be migrated, please be sure to provide information for the Blackboard course shell that contains the most up-to-date and complete content.
For example: If you teach a course in both the fully online and face-to-face modalities, you would most likely want to only migrate the fully online version of your course and perform the cleanup and finishing touches on that version. You would then use this migrated online version as source for your face-to-face section, paring it down as needed.
