We were placed in the rare position of having a choreographer and photographer seek our online learning team to translate their in-person workshops into blended learning environments. Through the lens of the QM framework, we were able to leverage multimedia, virtual conferencing, and project-based learning in an online environment to enhance face-to-face coursework.

Change the Game! Using Adobe Connect and Rubrics to Deliver Hybrid Quality in Your Online Course

"Changing the Game" means interacting with students in an imitation of a hybrid format to enhance learning.  Using Adobe Connect sessions gives insight on common problems the professor has seen in past courses.  Rubrics are used to teach the students how they can directly affect their grade by checking for all requirements using the same "tool" the professor use to grade.  My courses start with a welcome video and Adobe Connect sessions for credit.  The Adobe Connect sessions feature talking points so that students get an interactive overview of the course purpose and structure.
