Developing and Distributing Open Textbooks through Multiple Platforms via the Cloud
The increasing cost of textbooks and advances of technologies expedite the growth of open textbooks. We discuss benefits and challenges that face instructors in developing open textbooks. The process of iterative refinement of SCORM-conformant digital textbooks is explained, which allows instructors to develop open interactive learning environments and deliver them through the cloud. This approach could help promote knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary collaboration, thus improving teaching and cutting costs in the long run.

Online or In Line: Information Aligned

Timely and accurate advisement is a key contributor to student success that requires coordination of advice and sharing of information between student service offices. Learn how ITS and Advisement addressed student-specific and general advisement needs by 1) creating StudentCentral, an online clearinghouse of advisement interactions that logs the advice, decisions and comments from advisement sessions with links to related documents; and 2) implementing InfoCentral, a wiki tool within which student service offices share expertise and information.

Displaying Course Evaluations and Schedules in Conjunction with CUNYfirst

The introduction of CUNYfirst required significant changes in our course evaluation program. The new program displays course evaluation results, and also schedules and enrollment data in formats that are easy to use and easily accessible by everyone. Access to scheduling and enrollment data in this way avoids placing any burden on CUNYfirst, which sometimes suffers from slow response times. Customized displays (e.g., writing intensive or Gen Ed courses only) may be added easily.

Social Learning Best Practices - Using Web 2.0 in the Classroom
Social learning tools foster creativity, innovation, and encourage students to work together, communicate, and think critically. Today’s students, and educators, need tools for collaboration, personal learning spaces to collect and reflect on course work and personal interests, community areas for group projects, and departmental and administrative collaboration spaces.
 
Learn about the social learning applications that are available at CUNY to add innovative social assignments to your courses, build a portfolio of academic work across time, and collaborate online with self-organized groups or campus community. We will explore best practices and learn how to utilize these updated Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.

The Effectiveness of Social Networking in a Fully Online Class Environment: Preliminary Survey Results
This presentation treats the use of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter in a fully online Computer Information Systems class. These were used to complement the Blackboard Discussion Board to gauge the value-add of social networking sites in online instruction. The sites allowed students to communicate more informally about the class, their progress and their social involvement. In addition to presenting the survey data, this presentation examines how instructors might use social networking to enhance instructional effectiveness.

Digital Literacy and Higher Education: Computations for 21st Century Pedagogy

Digital literacy is not the sole responsibility of computer science faculty, but of everyone involved in the education process. Information and communications technology (ICT) integration requires an attitudinal and pedagogical adjustment to teach 21st century students. It is the faculty that directs the educational experiences of students and it is their responsibility to make ICT relevant to the educational process.

Math Is Not a Spectator Sport: Lab Tutoring for Online Remedial Homework
An 18-section experiment for two different remedial mathematics courses, Basic Math Skills and Elementary Algebra, showed improved performance and attendance at up to a 0.001 significance level for math lab classes providing tutoring in online homework completion rather than demonstrations of pencil-and-paper exercises. These results corroborate and extend earlier research at Hostos and support the importance to both student engagement and performance of active problem-solving over passive absorption.

Using "YouTube" in Calculus I

Pre-lecture videos posted on “YouTube” were used to improve students’ participation in Calculus I. The videos were linked in Blackboard, and students were required to watch them before coming to class. This seemed to increase students’ participation. This presentation will discuss this method in some detail, noting both its advantages and disadvantages.

Keeping Administration and Faculty Informed – Reports and Dashboards

The business intelligence system at Lehman College keeps our administration and faculty informed, up to the minute, with different types of reports and dashboards produced from our central data repository. The ability to aggregate data from disparate sources allows users to drill down and create a wide array of reports, charts and diagrams. This presentation treats how Lehman College addressed the most important factors in prototyping critical reports to serve senior administrators and faculty across the campus.

A Recipe for Transformational Success: Open Source, Collaboration and Imagination
This presentation treats how Lehman College automated the process for adjunct faculty reappointments using ProcessMaker Open Source BPM Platform. This process redesign initiative combined five key components (strategic process design, cross-functional collaboration, managed planning, executive support and open source software) to re-invent a significant and out-of-control process. The result was the “Electronic-Personnel Action Form System” (ePAF), an efficient, low-cost, on-time automation setting the stage for transforming the administrative services campus-wide.

Ditching Science Textbooks with Visionlearning: Content, Apps and More

Visionlearning is currently funded by the U.S. Department of Education, and previously by the National Science Foundation. Led by a national team of science education experts as authors and reviewers, Visionlearning provides free resources for classroom or online science education. The growing library of 75 modules is completely free, online, modular and available in English and Spanish. Inquiry-driven content is supplemented with primary data, animations, quizzes, blogging, a Facebook page, podcasts and an app for mobile devices.

Quantitative Assessment of a Publisher’s Online Learning Environment
This presentation reports on the McGraw-Hill system for Introductory Biology, The quantitative results demonstrated that student grades were lower when the captured lectures were available online. The decrease in test scores coincided with a decrease in class attendance. Results indicate that lecture capture should NOT be used as a study tool at the freshman level for CUNY students. Although the students were enthusiastic about online study tools, they were ambivalent about the use of eBooks.

DIY Web Radio as a Platform for Teaching, Learning and Building Community
Web streaming technologies enable anyone to set up a web radio station and broadcast live or pre-programmed content with free software and standard computer equipment or mobile device. We will discuss the technical requirements and pedagogical possibilities of web radio and will use the webstream created for the DS106 MOOC as an example of how open web radio can inspire experimentation, foster creativity and provide a platform for teaching, learning and collaboration.

Teaching on the Open Web
Widely available digital tools, such as Wordpress, Wikipedia and Twitter, allow students to engage not only their instructor and peers in the course, but a wider online community of interested participants. We will discuss students’ development of a digital identity for the MOOC DS106 using Wordpress in commercial web hosting accounts. We will also describe students’ blogging and development of writing skills using Wikipedia in two psychology classes.

Enhance Collaboration and E-Learning on Your Campus                              
With limited time and financial resources, campus faculty and administrators are in search of new ways to interact, share information, and even hold classes, meetings or town hall events. Some campuses are even reaching outside their physical campus to provide lectures to remote and at-home students. The ideal solution is to find a tool that couples online collaboration and e-learning with connectivity to multiple LMS systems. Attend this session and see how you can provide an engaging learning experience for faculty, students and administrators on your campus.
