Yes you can: Offer a comprehensive set of technologies to enhance teaching and learning
Abstract The wide array of educational technologiesThe wide array of educational technologies available today has evolved substantially in the past few years. Tools which had been released just a few years back, are now more feature rich, easier to use, are able to integrate into campus portals. More importantly the systems have become more affordable - in that most are now hosted in the cloud, not needing developers and technical staff to maintain; thereby allowing instructional designers, media and content specialists to concentrate their work on assisting faculty to use these technologies. UMass Boston has over the past 4 years, has taken advantage of these developments and is able to offer the community a wide variety of options for engaging students. The presentation will show how a public university like UMass Boston has been able to offer a wide variety of systems, extended hours support, Wiki's, Blogs, classroom capture systems, iTunes U, personal response systems and other services with a small staff and limited budgets. Offering wide choices allows faculty to teach with tools that suit their teaching styles, but more importantly allows students who become aware of these tools to demand that their faculty adopt them, because the way students learn today has changed dramatically. It is our obligation to meet their learning needs. Copyrighton to meet their learning needs. Copyright
