6:00am – 7:00am AKST: Communicating Algebra Remotely: Problem Solved! (RECORDING)
(USDLA Hosted) Presenter: Michael Eiseman, Creator of Algebra By Hand(TM), 2017 USDLA Innovation Award Winner,
John McGowan, Project Manager, Equatio from TextHelp
There are many interactive distance learning tools for reading and writing because
text editors have long been a mainstay of internet communication. This is not the
case for mathematical equations. Until now, remote assessment for algebra has been
limited to multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank responses that give teachers little
insight into their students’ thought processes. New tools empower teachers to dynamically
create, present and manipulate equations before their remote students’ eyes. This
technology promises to arm students with advanced procedural fluency for algebraic
problem solving while saving teachers hours of time. Analytics from automated problem
grading give teachers much richer feedback that form the basis for better differentiated
teaching. This session will describe and demonstrate this exciting new development
in distance learning for algebra.
7:00am - 8:00am AKST: Enhancing Student Learning with Camtasia Video Quizzes (RECORDING)(Purdue/Kaplan)

8:30 am -9:30 am AKST NMC's Beyond the Horizon Digital Humanities Today webinar (NO Recording)
Emerging Learning Design (ELD) and the New Media Center are facilitating an online panel discussion as a jumping off point for collaborative
and ongoing efforts designed to advance the pursuit of pedagogy and research within
this emerging area of scholarly activity.
The field of digital humanities (DH), which refers to the suite of digital and computational
tools currently being used to advance scholarship in the humanities, is changing the
way educators work. For example, DH enables the analysis of data in ways that were
not possible without new technologies, including visualizing or manipulating texts
to reveal patterns, the display of complex histories through interactive maps, the
creation of 3D models to aid in the recreation of historical sites and artifacts,
and much more.
9:00am – 10:00am AKST: The Often-Overlooked eLearning Strategic Plan – Don’t Have One? You Should. (RECORDING) (USDLA Hosted) Presenters: Darcy W Hardy, PhD , Associate Vice President, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc. Jeff Rabey, PhD, Principal Strategist, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
Scott Ready, Principal Strategist, Accessibility, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
To ensure the long-term success of an eLearning program (blended, hybrid, fully online),
colleges and universities need an eLearning strategic plan for growing online programs
sustainably and at scale. An institution must consider and develop its goals, vision,
organization, governance, policies and procedures, as well as accessibility planning
around eLearning. When these areas are not at the core of the eLearning programming,
the institution risks any competitive advantage in the eLearning space. Institutions
often jump into developing courses and marketing programs when the campus is not organized
efficiently, and the overall program has not been operationalized. Skipping strategic
planning can cost the institution unexpected expenses and personnel resources. This
webinar will address the components of an eLearning strategic plan and how it is critical
to the success of the eLearning program.
