Collaboration is the buzz word

Another interesting article from E-Campus titled How ‘collaborative learning’ is transforming higher education.  Here are ECU there are a number of tools you can use such as Yammer, Mediasite Lecture Capture, Tegrity Lecture Capture, Centra, Collaborate (still looking for instructors to participate in Spring Pilot), Second Life, Videoconferencing and Lync to name a few.  Perhaps it is time to explore one of these tools for implementation in your Spring Courses!  Contact OET to set up a consultation time.
