MyGraphicsLab Training with Laura Noah of Pearson Education

I was extremely pleased with my test this afternoon (92%) on the Visual Communication with Adobe Photoshop ACA (Adobe Certified Associate) exam. However, no rest for the wicked. I jumped in the car, and jammed back to main campus at Wake Tech Community College to continue my professional development today with MyGraphicsLab training.

Today’s MyGraphicsLab training was conducted by Laura Noah of Pearson Education. We went through the ins and outs of Pearson’s MyGraphicsLab, and it seems as though it might be a winner. Contents include an e-Textbook for students, presentations with videos, selected readings, slide presentations, and built-in quizzes. These, coupled with blackboard’s ability to draw grades from MyGraphicsLab without having to take in too much additional  workload.

Listening to Laura Noah talk, this system will allow us to remove some of the trouble with testing. The material will be adjusted on their end, stopping us from dealing with software updates, and preventing us from having to update our test materials over and over each semester. It will allow us to augment our printed and online materials with enrichment courses, and prepare our students for possible entry into the ACA exams.

We went through a few sample chapters, and the materials seem good to go. I’m for it, and I’ll be looking forward to some materials in our upcoming classes.
