CLEAR supports a variety of instructional technologies. Let us help you find technology solutions that work best for you and your students.
Learning Management Systems
Canvas, UNT's next Learning Management System (LMS), is expected to begin launch in Fall 2017 and fully replace Blackboard by Spring 2019.
Blackboard, the learning management system (LMS) in use at UNT, may be used for course activities and communication in online, blended or traditional face-to-face courses.
Qwickly, a user-centric productivity platform, allows faculty to make courses available in Blackboard, send emails, post announcements, and post content to multiple courses at once from DropBox, Google Drive and OneDrive.
Respondus enables you to create and manage exams to be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard Learn for online delivery.
Communication and Collaboration Tools
GoToTraining is an online collaboration tool to enhance online courses with live, voice-based interaction for up to 100 participants.
GoToMeeting can be used for smaller, more informal meetings and can be launched from within Outlook.
PBworks (formerly PB Wiki) lets you create a simple, secure Web-based workspace that supports highly collaborative class activities.
Review our Social Media Guidelines to learn ways to incorporate social media into your class and avoid risks that can come with third-party sites.
CLEAR facilitates the delivery of videoconference based courses every semester and also schedules many non-class related videoconferences.
StudyMate enables faculty to easily and quickly create actvities such as flash cards, crosswords and quizzes to help students engage students with course content in an individualized way.
Lynda.com is a leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals.
Turnitin helps students learn to cite their work properly and aids faculty detecting possible incidents of plagiarism on written assignments.
Respondus LockDown Browser
With Respondus' specialized browser, the testing environment within Blackboard is locked down so students are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications.
Respondus Monitor is a companion application for LockDown Browser that uses webcam and video technology to prevent cheating during online exams. Respondus Monitor integrates seamlessly with learning management systems, and is ideal for non-proctored testing environments.
