The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) at Texas A&M appreciates your willingness to work with our students. Your commitment provides our preservice students an opportunity to gain experience and insight into teaching. The Texas Administrative Code requires that mentor and/or cooperating teachers receive training that relies on scientifically-based research. The CEHD has an on-line module that fulfills this state requirement. Complete the form below and you will receive account information necessary for accessing the module.
We ask that all requests be submitted 3 to 5 days in advance of the date needed and only by an active member of the College of Education and Human Development (Students, Faculty and Staff). All items will be loaned out in a (First Come - First Serve basis), although last minute requests will certainly be fulfilled pending availability, the earlier an item is requested the more likely it will be available
The university is transitioning from eLearning to a new learning management system (LMS) called eCampus. This new LMS will be available university-wide in the Fall 2013 semester. Instructional Technology Services (ITS) is now offering training on the new eCampus for all current eLearning users and other interested persons. We have arranged with ITS to have specific training sessions just for CEHD faculty and staff.
Technology Services strives to help faculty, staff, and students fulfill the strategic initiatives of the College of Education and Human Development Technology Services. We provide support for desktop and mobile computers, network and email access, database and server functions, and technology resources for face-to-face and distance learning.
Our website is designed to provide technology-related information to CEHD faculty, staff, and students. If you need something that you do not find here, feel free to contact our help desk via firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by our offices in 434 Harrington Tower.
Customizations for COURSES15

Set max_input_vars = 5000 (default is 1000, 5000 may not be completely necessary, but works)
With a limit of 1000, manual backups may fail for complex courses since the number of options when making a backup is proportional to the number of topics, quizzes, assignments, etc. 1000 failed for Bob Hall's 435/635 course.

LEARN Engineers are attempting to contact Level3 and GAATN for more details.
