Teaching Hacks

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Monday 3rd June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

A collection of simple ideas that can magnify the impact of an instructor's teaching through the use of an LMS. These hacks have been collected from an international collection of instructors and provide solutions to common challenges in teaching. Some of the teaching hacks address concerns with student attendance and communications, others with facilitating collaboration and other elements of active learning. Participants might be surprised to learn what kind of challenges an LMS and the web can solve. Much as the development community would use the term, these teaching hacks are intended to be pragmatics solutions that might use a resource not as it was originally intended to be used.
