Think-In 2007 – Teaching with Technology

thinkin1.jpgCCC Instructional Design Specialist Pre-Ah Hill and I attended Think-In 2007: A Teaching with Technology Showcase at ECU. For over 4 hours we shared our professional development innovations and strategies in addition to our Blackboard Boot Camp initiative with online teachers and distance learning professionals from around the state.

This is my second year participating in the Think-In and I must admit I continue to be amazed at all the innovative distance learning / teaching technology and creative methodology being applied at colleges across the state. The Think-In is an opportunity to share the “best” of what is going on in education. Project Coordinator Ginny Sconiers did an excellent job assembling a diverse mix of faculty who gave presentations via “laptop” poster sessions and course demonstrations.”

    I found your website and thought you may be interested in MyiCourse.com, a free, web-based, e-learning platform that is “just right” for those faculty members who want the freedom to create their own on-line educational site, but do not have the budget, servers, IT department support or programming skills to access the typical e-learning solutions. Yes, I did say it was free. No limits. No contracts. No stripped down “free version” with the “real version” requiring money. MyiCourse platform allows a multi-media approach using video, audio, images and PDFs. We emphasize accountability for the students. Students are timed, tested and they can send their transcripts after course completion. MyiCourse.com also allows sharing of academic courses for all to use. In short, a great course on one of our sites can be imported and placed in the course catalog of other MyiCourse sites. MyiCourse also allows you to create a public site for everyone, or a private site that is closed and password protected.

    I would invite you to drop by MyiCourse.com and click on the Learning Center link. Another option would be to Google Myicourse and see what others are saying. I would be most pleased to spend some time with you or others on the telephone and give you an online tour. Let me know what you think. MyiCourse.com, flattening the world one course at a time.

    Thanks for listening.
