Reminder – This week is National Distance Learning Week (November 10th – November 14th)


Sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association, National Distance Learning Week seeks to promote and celebrate the tremendous growth and accomplishments occurring today in distance learning programs offered by schools, businesses, and governmental departments. During the week of November 10-14, the USDLA will host a series of free webinars showcasing various types of distance learning resources and best practices.

We believe several of the sessions will be of interest to our faculty including:

• Adding Game Elements to Online Courses: It’s Not That Hard! (Presented by: Josef Varga, Michael Anderson, and Marcela Ramirez – University of Texas at San Antonio)
• Exploring the Promise of Student Personal Learning Networks (Presented by: Bernard Bull – Concordia University Wisconsin)
• First Course Success: Using Data to Predict Program Success (Presented by: Karen Ferguson – Northcentral University)
• Distance Learning Resources in Telehealth (Presented by: Janet Major – Arizona Health Sciences Center)
