CRS User Group

This group provides a forum for users of all Classroom Response Systems at Aston to develop their skills and share good practice across disciplines. It aims to meet once per month during term time and welcomes contributions to those sessions from members. Relevant news and practical tips will be published on the CRS User Group Blackboard site and email announcements will be used to keep in touch.

This is now an online group with regular webinars taking place in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

To join a webinar, log in to Blackboard 5 minutes before the start and access the CRS User Group organisation from the link on your welcome page – look in the My Organisations area, usually in the middle column of boxes:

Then select Webinars in the Blackboard navigation menu and click on today’s webinar.

You’ll need speakers or headphones to listen – and a webcam or microphone if you’d like to speak. Text chat is also available via the purple arrow icon on the right of the screen.
