Game-Based Education: Applications and Implementation
Video games are rapidly becoming the one of fastest-growing forms of mass media in America--and along with this growth, like TV and music before it, comes legitimacy as a tool for learning. In this presentation, we present some key points of discussion on the topic of video games in higher education. We examine a recent implementation of such a game in a real-world classroom, and determine some possible steps for moving forward with this new kind of educational tool.

iPad Rising
The purpose of this study was to investigate user engagement of mobile computing devices. A mixed method research design was used for this project which included a retrospective analysis of user log data and an end user survey. The iPad Pro 9.7 + Apple Pencil distribution in the fall of 2016 demonstrated significantly higher end user engagement than did previous models of iPad throughout the fall of 2016. End of semester comparisons of user engagement with the iPad Pro 9.7 + Apple Pencil(R), compared to other iPad(R) models, was significantly higher in 2016 (p 0.05). This presentation extends the analysis over a three year period including the fall of 2018.

Education, Simplified with Cisco Webex Teams(tm)
Today’s students want to learn anytime, anywhere, on any device. Teachers and administrators want to innovate faster than ever. And everyone wants to collaborate without boundaries.
 
How would it look if everything they needed lived in your LMS?
Teachers and administrators would organize students into groups in Cisco Webex Teams(tm) in seconds so they can collaborate on projects.
Teachers, administrators, and students would access lectures, assignments, and everything else they need in one location.
Collaboration via voice, video, chat, and file sharing would run on the same platform as all academic and administrative functions.
 
Connected learning just got easier.  Please join us to learn how Cisco is helping colleges and universities re-imagine the possibilities for education.

Our continuing mission: to explore, seek out, and boldly go through the implementation of our Learning Management System conversion to Canvas. Come talk with others who have converted, are converting or may convert to Canvas from another LMS. Bring questions and your experiences as we discuss a host of topics.
* What concerns did you have that you needn't have worried about?
* What things did you overlook completely that should've been given greater attention?
* How did you support and train faculty and staff during the transition?
* How did you support faculty and students after you went live?
* How did the roles of people associated with the LMS change after implementation?
This discussion is limited only by the constraints of time itself!

Online Student Perceptions of Social Presence in Interactive Telepresence and Web Conferencing
Online students prefer being able to see both their instructor and course content at the same time in their online courses. This presentation extends the findings of this previous research and describes the results of a recent experiment that compared four variations of online video. A live, interactive telepresence treatment group, a live interactive web conferencing group, a recording of the telepresence group, and a recording of the web conferencing group, were all compared in terms of social presence. The same instructor, the same 20-minute presentation, and the same subject matter were used in each group. In the real-time telepresence and web conferencing treatments, the instructor and the online students were able to see and hear each other and interact in real-time. Students in the recorded telepresence and the recorded web conference groups were only able to see the presentation. The telepresence students rated the social presence of the instructor highest, followed by the web conferencing students, followed by the students who only viewed the recordings. This result helps confirm the social presence impact of live video in online courses and helps inform instructional design and technology support best practices for online courses.

Get the Answer with QR RIght Now
We are creating a list of short, one-item videos that teachers (students, staff) can access with a QR reader on their phone. The idea is if you need it now and can get an instant answer, that will help teachers get on with their class and cut down on calls for help.
We feel this can be effective as almost everyone keeps a cell phone with them, and by making the presentations short and precise, the users will not wade through unneeded information to get to what they want.
