    Inside Higher Ed

    New Directions in Online Education

    Online education is ubiquitous in American higher education. Some colleges deliver most or all of their instruction online. Other colleges – including institutions with traditional-age students and residential campuses – also have embraced online education. And hybrid education mixes face-to-face with online elements.

    This webcast will explore some of the ways colleges are delivering instruction to students online, and some of the innovations in learning technologies and pedagogy. Increasingly, developments in online education influence traditional face-to-face instruction, so tracking online education has never been more important.

     

    Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, September 7 at 2:00 PM ET.

    Communicating Algebra Remotely: Problem Solved!
    Presenter: 
    Michael Eiseman, Creator of Algebra By Hand(TM), 2017 USDLA Innovation Award Winner

    There are many interactive distance learning tools for reading and writing because text editors have long been a mainstay of internet communication.  This is not the case for mathematical equations. Until now, remote assessment for algebra has been limited to multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank responses that give teachers little insight into their students’ thought processes. New tools empower teachers to dynamically create, present and manipulate equations before their remote students’ eyes.  This technology promises to arm students with advanced procedural fluency for algebraic problem solving while saving teachers hours of time.  Analytics from automated problem grading give teachers much richer feedback that form the basis for better differentiated teaching.  This session will describe and demonstrate this exciting new development in distance learning for algebra.

    The Often-Overlooked eLearning Strategic Plan – Don’t Have One? You Should.
    Presenters: Darcy W Hardy, PhD , Associate Vice President, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
    Jeff Rabey, PhD, Principal Strategist, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
    Scott Ready, Principal Strategist, Accessibility, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.

    To ensure the long-term success of an eLearning program (blended, hybrid, fully online), colleges and universities need an eLearning strategic plan for growing online programs sustainably and at scale. An institution must consider and develop its goals, vision, organization, governance, policies and procedures, as well as accessibility planning around eLearning. When these areas are not at the core of the eLearning programming, the institution risks any competitive advantage in the eLearning space. Institutions often jump into developing courses and marketing programs when the campus is not organized efficiently, and the overall program has not been operationalized. Skipping strategic planning can cost the institution unexpected expenses and personnel resources. This webinar will address the components of an eLearning strategic plan and how it is critical to the success of the eLearning program.
