This seminar will examine the role of adaptive technologies in shaping the online, hybrid and flipped learning environments. The session will first demonstrate what is meant by the term adaptive learning, and then explore how a new slate of adaptive technologies is shaping the way that instructors design and assess their classrooms. Using the market leader in adaptive learning software and assessment as a model, Michael will discuss not only how these technologies work, but how institutional administrators as well as faculty can maximize their usefulness in specific learning environments. Michael’s student experiences will also review analytical and reporting requirements as well as LMS integration considerations.
Provided by the Director of the Dutton-eEducation Institute at Penn State University, this seminar will provide an overview of the "backward design" process. "Backward design" helps to move faculty from the traditional "pick-a-textbook-first" model of course planning to a more successful "start-with-your-desired-learning-outcomes" model that ultimately helps them select more appropriate course materials. Discussion for adminstrators of faculty development, online campus initiatives, and individual faculty will follow.
The shift from print to digital learning materials is underway. Here’s what you need to know to establish your own direct distribution model. Students are living in an increasingly wired world that is clearly reflected in their study habits. Digital learning tools offer distinct advantages to students, instructors, and institutions. How can we work together to solve these problems? While times are changing, the textbook model has not. New models of distribution of ebooks and cutting-edge digital learning tools offer the promise of making learning materials more affordable, more engaging, and more effective than the textbooks of the past. Topics to be covered include: • How direct distribution models can make digital learning materials significantly more affordable for students and provide a revenue stream for your bookstore or institution. • The benefits of digital learning materials to students and faculty • Working with your campus bookstore and bookstore manager • The “dos and don’ts” of exploring and implementing a direct distribution model About The Presenter Nik Osborne recently joined McGraw-Hill from Indiana University where he served as the Leader of IU’s eTexts Initiative and Chief of Staff to Brad Wheeler, IU’s Vice-President for IT. While at IU, Nik led the creation and implementation of IU’s eText Initiative—a ground-breaking model for the direct distribution of digital learning materials. Nik’s experience in the realms of academia and publishing give him a unique and well-rounded perspective on the past, present, and possible futures of learning materials in higher education.

For many educators and students, online video is no longer just an accessory – it has become a primary medium for teaching and learning. This change has brought legal and ethical pressures to add closed captions to make video accessible for the deaf and hard of hearing. Closed captions are also being demanded by ESL students who benefit from the ability to review course content at their own pace.
For technologists, this means figuring out the most streamlined and cost-effective solution for combining lecture capture and closed captioning. Although publishing accessible video is not without its challenges, many universities have discovered that the right set of tools can make the process simple and affordable.
