Editor Scott Jaschik and technology reporter Carl Straumsheim discuss the use of technology to deliver instructions. At some institutions, professors do little more than use learning management systems to record attendance and grades and to communicate with students. At the other end of the scale, millions of students study entirely online. For the great middle, though, professors are increasingly using their LMS and other technology tools to do things that don’t simply replace paperwork. They are bringing together students from across the country or around the world. They are “flipping the classroom” and using class time for group work or student presentations, rather than for lecture. They are using simulations, videos and an ever-growing list of tools. And they are doing so in courses that are entirely online, entirely in person and in hybrid formats.; 58 min webinar.
