Mobile learning has evolved out of the “future promise” stage into a reality in our classrooms today. More than two-thirds of college-aged students have a smart phone, and close to half own a tablet. For many, a mobile device is the primary means of access to the Internet. In this workshop, we explore how portable computing offers new possibilities for teaching, learning, and the student experience. Come and learn about this emerging technology and help determine some best practices in how to blend it into your instruction.

This presentation is an overview of mobile learning technologies and best practices. Questions addressed include:

  • What is mobile learning?
  • What concerns are there about mobile learning?
  • How can I utilize mobile technology in my face to face classroom?
  • How will students be able to access the Learning Management System (Blackboard or ANGEL) on a mobile device?
  • How does the Blackboard Mobile Learn for ANGEL app work?
  • What factors do I have to consider to make my online course more “mobile friendly”?
  • What are some apps that can be used to increase learning?

Authentic Online Assessment

This hands-on workshop will address pedagogical issues of evaluation vs. assessment, how to assess the daily work, subjective vs. objective assessment, formative vs. summative evaluation, in online courses. Participants will also work directly with tools that support assessment. In this workshop we addresses the need for authentic and reliable online evaluation and assessment strategies. Topics included in this workshop are:

  • Assess or Evaluate?
  • Written Assignments
  • Assessment Instruments: Exams / Surveys / Discussion Forums
  • Creating and using a test item pool

There are four kinds of assessments and they should all be used to encourage individual learning and to prove that learning has taken place.
