Facilitating Social Interactions: Measuring Engagement and Promoting Academic Success within the LMS

The Learning Management System is evolving rapidly, becoming a more flexible and interactive part of the classroom. As that happens, how can you better integrate the LMS into the campus classroom? How can you measure and analyse student participation in the social and collaborative technologies that are becoming part of a good LMS? Technologies already exist to collect basic data on student participation and interactions; the focus now is collecting more comprehensive data about online behavior in the classroom, then using the data effectively. The LMS of the future will help collect data, then produce sophisticated analysis and reports on-demand.

Attend this webinar to hear differing viewpoints, best practices, and views into the future of the LMS from three leaders in online education.

Presented by:

  • Stephen Downes, senior researcher, National Research Council of Canada
  • Colin Beer, Curriculum Design Unit, Central Queensland University
  • Lou Pugliese, president of online learning solutions provider  Moodlerooms

Moderated by: Linda Briggs, contributing editor, Campus Technology
