Distance Learning Training and Resources for Educators

We had a very productive first meeting for our DL Advisory Committee last Friday. I appreciate Dr. Emory kicking off our meeting with her thoughts, concerns and perspectives concerning the challenges that face CCC in respect to the various DL initiatives in progress across campus.

You can access the entire audio podcast of the meeting by clicking on the CCC ITunes U link and scrolling down to Distance Learning Icon then clicking DL Advisory Meeting. Remember…you must have ITunes to access the CCC ITunes web site. Click here to download the free ITunes

I am looking to Mark Johnson to follow up with Ken Martin concerning innovative ways we can be offering online counceling and other support services to our DL students and Doree Evans to brainstorm with the Academic Support staff on how we can get ALL our students prepared and proficient for online classes and the use (and access) to the technology and understanding the teaching methodology better?

I see one of our biggest challenges as we approach the summer semester is to get all our online faculty trained on the new (upgraded) version of Blackboard 7.2. Pre-Ah and I are offering 2 training sessions per week until the end of this semester.

Please use this blog to keep me (us) informed of your ideas, and progress concerning the various challenges and issues facing CCC. I will let you know shortly when our next meeting is scheduled for.

thanks for being a part of this very important team!

Patrick Keough
Director of Distance Learning
