  • Session Notes: Accessibility & Design Issues In Distance Learning Courses


    Our first session at THATCampCC 2017 was about Accessibility & Design Issues In Distance Learning Courses.

    • Simplicity is important…keep things on one page…
    • Need to have specific directions…click here first…
    • Could create video tutorials
    • Perhaps a Blackboard shell to discuss various CMS issues for faculty?
    • Colleges need to have a list for students of what they need to ACCESS (skills wise) a distance learning course
    • Which is also an ADA/504 accessibility issue…for example, making sure you have a script for videos
    • Weekly versus modular scheduling
    • Discussion of making sure distance students get the same “first five minutes” info
  • Schedule!

  • Session Proposal #1: Accessibility & Technology In The Classroom


    Every August there seems to be numerous op-eds in education newspapers about BANNING LAPTOPS in the classroom. I would love to moderate a session about accessibility in the classroom and specifically these sorts of bans.

  • Session #1: The Key Technological Needs Of Community College Students

    • How does texting in classroom change pedagogy?
    • How much of technological consumption is passive versus active? How does that change how students engage?
    • Should there be questions about the infallibility of the databases we expect our students to use?
    • Students need to know how to make a basic MLA paper template.
    • They also need to know how to backup their work. Where is that taught?
    • Should the MLA template be submitted and assessed? (This is a great idea)
    • What about accessibility issues?
    • Students need to know what a URL is!
    • There needs to be a logic to file naming for both professor and student.
