Creating on Online Radiography Class

dental-xrayI’ve decided to try developing a blended course for Radiography. Using, I’m creating the online portion of the class. The lab will be conducted in the dental hygiene clinic, face-to-face. This week’s activities were a huge task. Since this is a 10 week course, I had a lot of materials to upload to my course. It took a lot more time than I thought it would. The most time-consuming part was creating the online exams, but now that I have test questions in a test bank, the exams will randomly pick questions from the bank, creating a unique exam each time. I like that they’ll be graded instantly too! Another time-consuming task was finding good videos for each module because you have to watch several before you pick the ones that align with the objectives for each module. There are a lot of dental x-ray videos on YouTube, but it was hard finding the ones that really aligned with what was in the module. The one thing I didn’t complete was my discussion questions for each module. I didn’t want to rush through creating good discussion questions, so I’ll have to work on that this next week. So far, so good! I’m really proud of all I’ve accomplished this week.

I'm a dental hygiene instructor in San Antonio, TX. I want to share my passion for dental hygiene with other hygienists and create a place where hygiene educators can meet and collaborate. I received my A.S. Dental Hygiene from Southwestern College in San Diego, CA in 2003. After ten years of clinical practice, I returned to school to earn my B.S. Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University. I'm currently working on my Master's in Education with an emphasis in Digital Learning and Leading from Lamar University in Texas. I have an amazing husband and three kids: Matt (15), Chloe (10), and Silas (21 months). When I'm not fighting plaque and gingivitis, I like to hang out with friends and family (a little BBQ here and there), garden, play with the kiddos, travel, and remodel our house (a never-ending project!). I ride horses, speak a little French, and I'm a great shot with a bow and arrow (must be the Cherokee in me!). Most of all, I love to learn and share ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
