Online Lightning Round - Learning Management System Showcase: Web 2.0 Tools: Empowering Faculty to Move Beyond the LMS

Tuesday, February 15 | 5:55PM–6:15PM
Session Type: Professional Development
Curt Bonk has observed that "most course management systems fail to provide creative sparks to learning because they only track or map it after it occurs" (2009, pp. 135-136). This presentation will be anchored by a description of how and why the faculty members in an online Instructional Technology MEd program are using Web 2.0 tools outside a standard LMS to support teaching and learning. Specific examples of instructor and student use of the tools will be described and discussed.
