SoftChalk Create 8

What is SoftChalk Create?
Description: SoftChalk_Logo

UDC has purchased SoftChalk Create (Desktop Version 8) which is an application that will allow you to quickly build course content - or transform existing course materials into interactive and engaging e-learning content with minimal time, effort and resources. You will be able to build, customize and personalize content by “mashing up” your own materials with rich media (video, audio, images) interactive activities, quizzes and text that you can search for within the application (Sample Lessons). This combination of personalized content, embedded assessment, interactivity, and immediate student feedback increases student engagement and improves learning outcomes. Once you have created your content, it is easy to add it directly into a specific course or courses in Blackboard Learn. It is easy to share your content between courses or with other instructors as the content is completely portable.
 

Where can I get SoftChalk?
UDC has site-licensed Soft Chalk Create 8. The software will be supported by RAIL, and is available to all faculty. To install SoftChalk on your computer, log into Blackboard, on the Faculty/Staff Dashboard go to the Faculty/Staff module where you will find the SoftChalk downloadable link. If you would like to get more information about SoftChalk please contact RAIL at 202.274.6628 or email RAILhelpdesk@udc.edu for more information.

Note: Please note that our SoftChalk license agreement does not include SoftChalk Cloud.
