Community Showcase: The Researcher's Conundrum Solved - How to Connect, Collaborate & Share With Your Global R&E Peers Using Schoology

Time 04/28/15 02:30PM-03:00PM

Room Congressional Hall Foyer

Session Abstract

Computer Science and EnGlobal scholars and researchers often encounter a challenge when collaborating on research projects - finding a common technology platform that allows for robust communications, collaboration and a shared resource repository to store data. In this Community Showcase session we’ll share how a faculty researcher in Australia connected her student researchers with 20 other institutions around the globe to create a global warming study using Schoology as it’s communication and collaboration hub. Together they are gathering and sharing data, participating in synchronous and asynchronous discussions, chat, and conferencing sessions and engaging in ways that in the past presented technical and infrastructure challenges that were difficult to overcome. We’ll demonstrate and show examples of how student researchers are using the Schoology platform to connect, analyze and share data and stayed engaged with one another across the globe.
