What is your institution’s strategy for providing a student and faculty friendly learning ecosystem supporting engaged interactions and meaningful learning analytics? Join us in this session to see models that can scale from colleges to major universities to multi-institution consortiums. The University of Utah’s Teaching Technology Core connects learning outcomes, curriculum management, LMS , content repositories, lecture capture and media management infrastructure into a cohesive learning environment and is built around several platforms available through Net+ partners or the emerging Unizin services. Solid core platforms can be extended with services like LectureTools, developed at the University of Michigan and acquired by Echo360, to provide an “Active Learning Platform” (ALP) where students can access their personal notes, instructors slides and instructor questions automatically linked to the relevant time in video captured class lecture, discussion and questions. Coupling the data from ALP with data from the Learning Management System (LMS) and Student Information Systems (SIS) this system has allowed analyses of how students with different incoming grade point averages (GPAs) behave differently in class and provides evidence to support interventions with lower GPA students.
