About the FLO MicroCourse:
Despite the recent growth in online and hybrid modes of teaching, many learning management systems lack simple and elegant ways for students to share, collaborate on, and discuss their multimedia assignments. Join this free one-week Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourse to learn about different methods for managing media collections in hybrid learning environments.
In this course you will explore platforms such as WordPress, GitHub, SPLOTs, and Notion and focus on enhancing participant engagement and fostering a sense of community by:
- Examining simple tools for sharing media
- Contributing simple multimedia works such as text, images, and documents to different platforms
- Developing a space to facilitate student collaboration
- Creating a gallery or portfolio to showcase student work
While most of the learning will happen asynchronously, we have one synchronous session planned on January 30, 2024, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., and on February 2, 2024, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
