TI:ME 1A 
By Marc Jacoby, Don Muro, and Dan Zanutto (2011)
The objective of Basic Skills in Music Technology is to impart practical skills and knowledge to in-service teachers to allow them to integrate technology effectively into teaching and learning. The course is divided into three sections - notation software, music production software, and the use of electronic musical instruments. The format of each section alternates presentations with class activities, many of which serve to assess student progress. Satisfactory participation in class activities and the successful completion of several final projects are required for certification.

TI:ME 1B 
By Amy Burns, Jay Dorfman, and Hank Wajda (2011)
Participants in this course will learn about a variety of digital media and technology-­assisted teaching and learning tools that can be used to support their music curricula. Participants will connect to and use instructional materials from the Internet. Students will also learn to author multimedia projects which include text, graphics, video, and sound in the digital domain. Participants’ progress will be assessed through completion of class assignments, and, at the discretion of the instructor, assignments completed outside of class time.


TI:ME 2A - Notation 
By Tom Rudolph and Floyd Richmond (2011)
The objective of Music Notation Software (TI:ME 2A) is to impart practical skills and knowledge to In-Service Teachers (Students) to allow them to integrate music notation software effectively into teaching and learning. The course covers in-depth skills in music notation software, and students will learn MIDI theory pertaining to music notation software input and playback. Students will leave with the necessary knowledge to make critical judgments about the appropriateness of selected music software and hardware for particular educational applications and various computer platforms. The format of course alternates between presentations and class activities, many of which serve to assess student progress. Satisfactory participation in class activities and successful completion of multiple final projects are required for certification.

TI:ME 2A - Sequencing 
By Steve Cunningham and Rick Schmunk, Edited by Scott Lipscomb (2011)
The objective of Advanced Sequencing is to impart practical skills and knowledge to In-Service Teachers (ISTs) to allow them to integrate MIDI and digital audio sequencing effectively into teaching and learning. The course covers in-depth skills in sequencing, and ISTs will learn MIDI theory along with best practices and skills pertaining to sequence recording, editing, and mixing. ISTs will leave with the necessary knowledge to make critical judgments about the appropriateness of selected music software and hardware for particular educational applications and various computer platforms. The format of the course alternates presentations with class activities, many of which serve to assess student progress. Satisfactory participation in class activities and successful completion of multiple final projects are required for certification. The prerequisite for this course is basic computer skills including using a computer keyboard; using a mouse for pointing, clicking, dragging; and some exposure and experience in the use of any sequencing software. TI:ME Course 1A Electronic Instruments, MIDI Sequencing and Notation is strongly recommended as preparation for this course.

Additional Information:
Advanced Sequencing is offered as either a two-credit or three-credit graduate course (includes optional topics). The instructor of the course must be approved by TI:ME and an expert in teaching music sequencing to in-service music teachers. It is strongly recommended that the class size be limited to allow for one IST per computer and no more than 16 ISTs per instructor. Additional ISTs may be accommodated if computer workstations and assistants are available. Each IST will need approximately 20 hours working alone on a workstation in order to complete class activities and final projects.


TI:ME 2B - Digital Media 
By Lynne Purse, Floyd Richmond, Dan Desrosiers (2007)
Digital Media (TI:ME 2B) covers the creation of multimedia files which may be integrated into Internet and multimedia projects, or which may stand alone as educational products (DVDs, CDs, etc.).
