  1. Future Opportunities Lanny Arvan Clark Hulse Ray Schroeder

  2. Lanny Arvan • Assistant CIO for Educational Technologies • UIUC • “Opportunities at Urbana for Distance Learning”

  3. Summary of Current Situation • Most programs are professional level • Excellence in quality • But little growth in scope of offerings • Separate technology infrastructure • The units have their own • The technology CITES supports is a secondary or tertiary option • Distance learning a strategic issue for particular units • But not for the campus as a whole

  4. Possibilities • With the technology • Course Management Systems • Streaming Media • Synchronous Communication tools • Programmatically • Recasting of General Education • Outreach to K-12 (mostly high school) • Getting our undergrads involved

  5. CMS - Integration • IMS Learning Tools Interoperability Project (with Samigo Assessment tool) • Illinois Compass (WebCT Vista) • Blackboard • Sakai • LON CAPA ?? • Moodle ?? • Enables joint development of content (We hope)

  6. Streaming Media • Complement of Network Initiative • Many departments pool investments • Share licensing costs • Enable more bandwidth for live events • Probable focus on RealNetworks • We are currently in discussion mode, not implementation mode

  7. Synchronous Solutions • Same software for F2F class with laptops and online class at a distance? What about online office hours? • eFuzion from CS (peer to peer solution) • Focus on Tablet PC and pen computing • Flash Media Server • Elluminate • Microsoft’s flavors (OneNote) • Possible convergence of distance and on campus applications and support

  8. Programmatic Developments • Focus on Large Gen Ed Courses • Hybrid Learning • Students as Mentors/Mentors • Computer Graded Assessments • Extend to K-12 • Teacher Education (Online and F2F) • Hosting of course sites • Our undergrads as online TAs/Graders • Outreach and recruiting benefit

  9. Conclusion • A lot of change is in the offing • A possible result of that change is a convergence between the campus support of eLearning and what is done in the distance learning space. • Another possible result is the campus programmatic developments have components in the distance learning space.
