Keynote: Digital Learning Research: Working in the Margins of Uncertain Mediation
Chuck will present the results of twenty-five years of research on digital learning at the University of Central Florida-one of the largest universities in the United States. He will document its inception from an interesting innovation to where online learning is major component of the institution’s culture. This involves multiple course modalities, unbundling of the traditional classroom, institutional outcomes and the creation of an enduring culture of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Long term results will include: student success and satisfaction, reasons for choosing digital learning, challenges encountered in that modality and implications of the Anna Karenina principal for effective teaching and learning. Chuck will demonstrate a decision tree rule for what students consider an excellent learning environment. Finally, he will discuss the need for working partnerships to better understand effective higher education.

Supporting Student Use of Technology in the Days of Digital Natives: A Student Equity Perspective
Students at Long Beach and Sacramento City Community Colleges have created dedicated technology help teams that support student use of technology across their campuses. Although we may think of digital natives as successfully able to navigate their use of academic technology, the digital divide is still present and negatively impacting student success. Laura and Kandace describe their colleges’ Student Tech Help support mechanisms and suggest ways of institutionalizing such support structures to equitably meet students where they are at in their exposure to and experience with technology.

Reshaping Classrooms via Student Response Systems
The role of technology in the classroom should be to energize and invigorate students and to encourage them to learn and be active participants in that process. In this presentation, I will discuss the use of student response systems (SRS), particularly iClicker Reef, in an active classroom and how iClicker Reef supports not only content mastery, but also provides a important conduit for instructor-student communication. I will discuss my pedagogy and the role of iClicker Reef plays within it. I will also share how I use iClicker Reef to support learning and as a vital communication tool to develop and maintain a positive learning environment.

It All Starts with Access
The CCC Online Education Initiative (OEI) is working to expand and improve online education. One goal of the project is to enable students to take online courses from any of the colleges in our consortium and eventually, our system. OEI is working with two vendors, N2N Services and Quottly.com, to create a seamless cross-enrollment experience for students. All schools can search for classes that meet IGETC or CSU Breadth requirements with consortium membership and course/institutional badges playing a key role. Our pilot, with 3 districts and 7 colleges, allows for those students to cross-enroll despite different Student Information Systems. For our pilot, we have one district each using Peoplesoft, Ellucian Banner, and Colleague (also by Ellucian).

Letting the Elephant Out of the Closet! Building a Culture of Quality through QLT Course Reviews and Certification
This session will describe campus and system efforts to support development and review of online courses that meet a standard of “high quality” using the CSU Quality Learning & Teaching (QLT) instrument. Within the CSU, instructors have the option to move from informal campus-level review, to a system-level formal review using certified reviewers from across the system. Channel Islands will describe a pilot, which provided three course review pathways. CSU Stanislaus will describe how a Faculty Learning Community provided support for faculty. At the system level, implementation of the CSU QLT course certification program, process, stages, and online tools will be shared. Strategies shared include: a QLT Reviewer Training course; QLT peer mentors; a QLT FLC, and; management tools.

A Production Studio in Your Backpack
There are many ways to use iOS devices as recording devices where the material is later edited. It is also possible to live stream a single iPhone or iPad camera. There are also many situations that call for multiple cameras being live switched for either recording or live streaming. Up to now you would need to find a productions studio for that type of production. We will demonstrate how to use IOS apps which are used for recording and streaming of multi camera production using multiple iOS devices when a single camera is not enough. We’ll show a simple setup and things you can do to expand the setup. A full production studio can fit in a backpack yet have the production capabilities of studio costing many thousands of dollars.

Students operate large (600+ seats) lecture halls that require camera, lighting, and sound operation, as well as provide over-the-phone troubleshooting and in-person classroom technology assistance. Students are interviewed for CTS positions and attend trainings, shadow staff on initial shifts, and are required to maintain knowledge of the work and professionalism throughout their employment. With a team of 3.5 CTS FTEs to support the many classroom spaces, we have created a robust student staffing model that allows students to gain valuable job and personal skills while providing an excellent level of service to a large majority of the campus population.

In this session, academic technology professionals from different campuses will discuss their approach to offering academic technology software and services at their institution. One end of the support spectrum is the perspective of standardizing technology tools to allow optimum support to faculty. In contrast, the other perspective is to offer faculty choice, which sometimes means supporting duplicate tools (e.g., TurnItIn & Safe Assign; ProctorU & Respondus Monitor; Zoom & Collaborate).

Enhancing the Visibility and Accessibility of LMS Data to Support Learning
Titanium Engagement, a tool developed at California State University, Fullerton, monitors student usage patterns of Titanium (Moodle LMS), as an indication of their engagement with learning. Unlike typical end-of-term LMS reports, Titanium Engagement provides faculty with easily accessible, real time updates of how each student in the course is using the course site. The tool provides a clear visual indicator system for quick identification of students who may be disengaged. The instructor can also view a longitudinal pattern of student Titanium Engagement to spot behavior changes. Appropriate interventions deemed appropriate by the instructor can then be initiated to help bring the students back on track.

When All You Have Is A Hammer, Everything Looks Like Zoom
We are using Zoom conferencing software to meet three classroom needs. One of our students can only read text when it is very close to him. Zoom systems in his classrooms takes the content displayed on the projector and mirrors it to the student's tablet computer. A similar system sends the projector's image and the audio from the classroom to a remote American Sign Language interpreter. Video of the interpreter is displayed on the student's computer. We will be adding wireless projection in the next few years, but in the meantime we have instructors who want to walk around their classrooms and project from their tablets now. Loading Zoom on the installed computers in our lecture halls and enabling them to connect from their tablets was a cheap and easy solution for that.

Cultivating Faculty to Explore Content Capture
How can we get faculty to better leverage lecture and screen capture to enhance student learning?  This session looks at different strategies used at the University of San Francisco to promote lecture/screen capture technologies for use in all teaching modalities. In this session, we will discuss methods of training faculty, not only in the technology tools but also in the best practices for content creation. We will also present approaches on how to best support faculty who are looking to take the plunge and use lecture/screen capture to create or record content for face to face, flipped or online courses to better engage today’s students.

Virtual Reality use in classroom: What are faculty expectations?
Implementing Virtual Reality (VR) in the classroom can lead to new ways of thinking and doing for students, providing experiences not possible in a traditional classroom. Use cases of VR in higher education are rapidly emerging as VR devices are becoming affordable, compact, and mobile. This presentation will focus on the use of VR in four different courses at University of the Pacific (UOP), each with a different purpose. For each course, faculty expectations and resources needed to support them will be shared along with lessons learned.

Strategies for Effective Project Management in Online Course Development 
In the academic course work for instructional designers, ADDIE, SAM, and other ID models are generally at the core of the curricula and provide the critical foundation to best practices. However much of the process for delivering engaging, effective, online courses on time and within budget lies more in the domain of project/contract management and organizational dynamics, including; but not limited to: managing client expectations, clear definition of roles and responsibilities, defining scopes of work, client dependencies, approval authorities, review cycles, the change request process, and their impacts to schedule. The panel will discuss how to mitigate these challenges with project management strategies focused on the online course development context.

Expanding Outreach: Cross-disciplinary Storytelling Applications
Although some software applications are discipline specific, more and more applications have a broader appeal and provide an opportunity for cross-disciplinary projects. Adoption is further expanded as the platforms provide an easier, less technical user interface. One application, Esri Story Maps, is a geographic information system software that provides a digital storytelling platform that leverages location-based spaces with the visual appeal of accompanying media elements. Another application, Adobe Spark, is a creative application focused on storytelling by means of graphics, videos, and webpages. This presentation will showcase examples of ways these two applications were used in courses and will provide recommendations regarding ways to integrate them into the curriculum.

Benefits of Summiting Bloom’s Taxonomy in the Cloud
“Creating” is the peak of Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning: the ability to synthesize material can reveal topic mastery. This philosophy exists across disciplines, with many assessing students by asking them to create (e.g. written and musical composition, video, website e-portfolio, oral-visual presentation like a poster). Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) can support these goals to engage students, train them to use industry-standard software, and examine their ability to create, communicate, and think critically. Many campuses have reduced cost CC licenses. Here, I share a plethora of ways that students, faculty, staff, and administration can use CC to improve learning and campus processes and reduce student course material costs.

Teaching Climate Change Solutions: A Scalable Cross-Disciplinary Approach
Bending the Curve: Climate Change Solutions is a hybrid course that launched in January at the University of California, and has run on five UC campuses as well as at SDSU and MiraCosta College. Organized around 18 original lecture videos from 23 UC scholars, it looks at approaches to solving global warming through disciplines ranging from religion, economics, and health care to energy and transportation policy. In this presentation we’ll share the practical and pedagogical considerations that informed the design of this cross-disciplinary course. We’ll share how we managed to produce over a hundred media assets through the participation of 10 campus video production units. Finally, we’ll discuss how we plan to share this course with other institutions across California and beyond.
