The Law School provides support and training on the technologies below. These tools can help instructors enhance their teaching, share materials, and increase engagement. The Law School Academic Technologist can help you explore these tools and learn your options for their pedagogical use.
Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) designed to help faculty share course content, administer and grade assignments, and manage asynchronous interactions such as online discussions. A course site is provided for every course at BC, and students and instructors are automatically enrolled.
NameCoach is a tool designed to allow the Law School community to record the pronunciation of their names, clarify pronouns, and provide phonetic spelling. You can search for pronunciations here, or you can view your course roster in your NameCoach Canvas module.
Panopto allows instructors to create recordings of lectures or presentations, including audio, video and screen content, and share them with students in Canvas. Panopto lecture capture is available in technology-equipped classrooms, while personal capture recordings can be made on your personal laptop.
Zoom is a virtual conferencing tool that allows instructors and students to meet in real time through audio and video. It also supports screen sharing and small group interaction through break-out rooms. Zoom sessions can be recorded so students who can’t be present can view them afterward.
Poll Everywhere is a web-based personal response system that enables students to use any internet-connected device to respond to instructor questions. This tool can be used to engage students synchronously (both in-person and online) or student responses can be collected asynchronously.
