OTAAG Sept 26, 2014

This is the first post of what I hope to be a series of “Online Teaching at a Glance” posts in the “5th Campus” blog at ICC.  As a reminder, the “5th Campus” name emerged as we were starting up our Virtual Campus initiative.  At the time we counted our Peoria campuses (2), plus the East Peoria campus, and the Pekin site and dubbed the Virtual Campus ICC’s 5th campus.  At the same time I was coming up with short handles for our social media channels.  The 5th campus stuck with both the blog and Facebook addresses and names.  (If you haven’t liked us on Facebook yet, please do!  https://www.facebook.com/5thcampus)

And of course you can’t have a movement without an acronym so OTAAG is just the simple acronym for Online Teaching at a Glance.  The vision for this series of blog posts is to put timely and relevant information into a curated and small-bite format.  As the reader, you may want to check it all out or you may find just a link or two each time is of interest to you.  Either way, I hope you will “glance” and I welcome your input or even your willingness to guest curate a week if you’re interested (just contact me!)

Dean Dad asks, “For the folks who recently taught online for the first time: what do you know now that you wish you knew then?”  See the comments to his post.  If you are willing to, comment on his post and copy and post here, or just post here.  The article: https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/confessions-community-college-dean/first-timers-teaching-online

Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon is offering a MOOC on the Columbian Exposition of 1893 (White City: Then and Now). What do you think?   More info here: https://www.svcc.edu/news/2014/09/free-on-line-learning.html

The Online Learning Consortium posted proposed new definitions for e-Learning.  Do these work for us? http://blog.sloanconsortium.org/2014/09/18/updated-e-learning-definitions/
