Host: please mute everyone
thank you for muting
Participants please mute!
Welcome!Please mute your mic. Thank you.
The host can mute all mics
If I do, it will mute the presenter as well. I am working on muting people as soon as I possibly can.
I am not hearing
Sound is coming through good. Check your speakers
Adobe Connect also allows for transfer of links and documents in a single location.
it will be nice if you started this session as you are suggesting :-) leading by example
Good point. :)
Karen, not only that, but Adobe Connect allows for a student-centered design that supports cognitive engaglement
I mean ice breakers and setting the tone
Hi I am Dr Keshavarz. voice is good.
Consider talking to those Universities that have been using online for years. I have been an online Adjunct Professor for several years.
Time to let students do heavy lifting as Instructor Assistants to lead Instructor focus on learning rather than tech.
Jolly, AC has been my favorite for capabilities including breakout rooms.
facilitators get extra credit?
Md.Ahsan Ul Kabir
If you have topics you would like us to discuss with the experts in the room, drop them in the chat and we'll add them to be discusesd.
Is there a link that we can listen to this presentation recording? Will it be emailed to the registered attendees? Sorry, I've been called into a Provost meeting at 12:30 and I wanted to make sure to hear the rest.
Yes - it will be sent out after the meeting
Great. Thank you!
Have a good meeting Drew.
Md.Ahsan Ul Kabir
What vendors/freelancers do Univesal Design for Learning/ADL at a world class level?
What are some good strategies for IDs and faculty reaching a place where we can both speak the same language?
customized refinements take time...urgency is paramount
I'll queue up these questions verbally when Mike hits a stopping point
After earning my doctorate with a concentration in immersive learning, I thought VR was going to catch on quickly too. 20 years later, we are just now starting to move that direction.
we are in reactive mode now, but for years we've been in a circumspect & proactive mode
Sobia - ISD
keep it simile - you said it
Sobia - ISD
Excellent point--ID has evolved with the tech
From an ID: We support learning, we do not produce it. Only learners do that
What are some strategies to incorporate in an online learning environment to ensure student engagement?
DrKIG, I was first introduced to VR over 32 years ago (developed by a PHd student for his dissertation in neural networking). That said, pertaining to the introduction of new technology, Gartner’s Hype Cycle reveals it may take many years to attain the Plateau of Productivity

WOW at the beach = Graham
Setting up a common chat in something like SLACK can assist. People like to chat and are comfortable in that.
Try websearches on a topic.
The rocket scientists are found in large numbers in K-12
so our current environment with need for agility may mean that rubrics might take a bit of hit...suggestions on maintaining fluid rubrics...or is that an oxymoron?
Engagement - Hold "office hours" with individuals or small groups
Jim, you are so right!
This is part of the co-creation I was speaking about....
I certainly agree with empowering student with their own learning and fostering student collaboration and engagement.
There was a simulation for nuclear particles online for free.
collaboration not isolation in learning, totally!
Is anyone incorporating OER (Online Educational Resources)?
Please put the names of the virtual reality companies in the chat.
Here are resources for labs and other non-classroom space: https://teaching.berkeley.edu/labs-studios-and-other-non-classroom-spaces-best-practices
Labster VR for Lab
Solidworks for 3D animation
ODEM.IO for Blockhain and Ondemand education
Lots of augmented reality resources available too
Corporate training 'study group'...we call it a Huddle
Phet simulations for physicshttps://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulations/category/physics
Sketchfab for AVR
@Marcus, Merlot.org has wonderful OER materials in additions to OpenStax and NOBA for textbooks.
Check out VictoryVR
Tennessee State University does utilize OER.
Right now K-12s being instantly forced to use distance learning are doing some really boring stuff. They could really use some help from PADLA folks with experience in distance learning.
Question for instructors: Which distance learning software programs do you recommend for students with various disabilities (physical, visual, hearing, learning etc.)? Thank you

About 12 or so HBCUs are in partnership w Call State/OKC/Merlot for OER... Dillard uses some and is striving for more to adopt. -Tyger
3PlayMedia offers wonderful webinars and share resources. Canvas also has an accessibility rater included for announcements/lecture.
Sharon O'Geary, M.Ed, M.Psy
We use Moodle, and make videos from VidGrid

@OLC not OKC
I do a lot of work with accessibility in online education. You don't necessarily need special tools, you just need to create your courses to be accessible. Documents, videos, audio, images. We have some resources here: https://sps.northwestern.edu/distance-learning/how-do-i/course-accessible/
asked earlier, not addressed: so our current environment with need for agility may mean that rubrics might take a bit of hit...suggestions on maintaining fluid rubrics...or is that an oxymoron?
D2L - Desire 2 Learn
University of Washington DO-IT is also very good with accessibility resources.
for accessibility rating
Andi - web accessibility
Grackledocs.com provides the only Add-ons for G Suite (docs,, Sheets, Slides) check, remediate and create accessible materials
TXDLA.org for ADA session/training
Quality Matters Standard 8 Accessiblity and Usability training certification is what I did.\
Has anyone used AIRA for the visually impaired?
The Quality Matters training helped me acquire skills in designing accessible syllabi and other online learning components.
Quality Matters can be reached here: https://www.qualitymatters.org/
thx re rubrics...love the wearable idea...yes, connecting to the heart/brain
Vital Source - https://www.vitalsource.com
If the instructor takes a free course, they can see what worked for them or failed.
I like this: When we can connect to the human heart and how we learn then we have a breakthrough
Red shelf - https://www.about.redshelf.com/redshelfresponds
UVA has a number of resources for online learning, has nayone noted the OLC, UPCEA, IDEAx, and NLCVa.
Quality Matters created a modified rubric for these times I believe
How people really learn is the key. Using multiple means of engagement, expression and action, and representation are the UDL principles that should be incorporated online.
2020 CLOE 4https://www.qualitymatters.org/qa-resources/resource-center/articles-resources/CHLOE-4-report-2020 report from Quality Matters given COVID
Asking for what the students need from you can help with an early discussion
More students are the savvy than not.
Quality and consistent content across the online platform at an institution is important.
And level set expectations for yourself, as the instructor, too.
Faculty up to today are largely selected for their research and publications - online learning may focus faculty advancement on how well they inspire learning.
great information Our agency developed a class: Instructor Development for Web Conference Trainers
@ Coleman, possible lab resources https://learn5.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=2 http://www.chemcollective.org/vlab/vlab.php
I really like the idea of pairing teaching together.
Creating an online orientation for end users that incorporates the different modes of delivery for content can also expose them to what types of modalities will be used in their course of study...for example, have them click on different apps to see what the features are there, click on a document to open it up, click on a link to take them to a video to view, etc.
Online Allies...maybe an informal social media group to help others navigating this emergent paradigm
It's okay not to have all the bells and whistles. A positive experience can result from a learning experience where there's empathy.
Also like the concept of pairing individuals.
it's reality...not cold at all...good for the souls!!!!
@DrKIG, I completely agree!
looking for compatible apps for zoom to use with my pre-k students?
A lot of mobile vendors are offering free hotspots
We purchased hotspots for students
Yeah write to the FCC and reestablish network neutrality
And then there is something Google is offering something for this as well
The key to using tools like ZOOM is to use them as PART of a course design, and not have it take the place of other ways that deliver content and incorporate end user interaction with the content...just a thought.
Problem is many students don't have internet access at home. With public institutions being closed, there are no options for them.
Sara Abd El Aziz
I think the the future of learning will be changed after the coronaverius end
@Michael, that is NICE!!!
Philadelphia is providing free internet and tablets to kids
@Melissa, thank you!
our local school district just gave out 6000 Chromebooks to their students...drive thru...but I don't have one so not sure what utility they provide to students
Google is also providing Chromebooks in some areas https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/01/coronavirus-google-offers-wi-fi-chromebooks-to-california-students.html
Right. Many have mobile, but not internet
NPR had a segment this morning that mentioned a school who repurposed a school bus into a hotspot.
PC based learning took place before internet was available. That is the Amazon benefit.
Check out the edX program. It's free or paid for certification. https://www.edx.org/micromasters/usmx-umgc-instructional-design-technology
Great point. Every family has mobile.
Our state is deploying school buses with mobile hotspots in rural areas
Anyone know of an accessibility tool for visually impaired students in an Quantitative Method course online?
Remember that on mobile, it may be difficult to chat while seeing the video
I have families that do not necessary have mobile
Dr. Kevin Clark at George Mason University has a wealth of expertise and resources in this area.
or may be point of having limited bandwidth in rural areas...'have it' but speeds are slooooowwwww
Someone talk with Bill Gates...he's vision was to get a computer into every household.
Professor Teachers uses simulation on the PC without internet connectivity. This is a useful model.
Issues are different in densely populated and sparsely populated areas. There should be a Nationl push to provide fast internet access to EVERY community
Professor Teachers, not Teachers
Tophat.com offering free online tests and exams
we've been complacent to date on this...so true
Professor Teaches sorry.
Thank you, Dr.KIG. This digital divide is creating a class divide.
Write the FCC now. They are reevaluating the overturn of net neutrality.

Coronavirus Public Health Emergency Underscores Need for Department of Education’s Proposed Distance Learning RulesApril 1, 2020Contact: Press Office, (202) 401-1576, email@example.com•WASHINGTON — U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos proposed new rules today that would govern distance learning for higher education students. Although work on the proposed Distance Learning and Innovation regulation started more than a year ago, the COVID-19 National Emergency underscores the need for reform and for all educational institutions to have a robust capacity to teach remotely.See links below:https://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/coronavirus-public-health-emergency-underscores-need-department-educations-proposed-distance-learning-rules?utm_source=Iterable&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=campaign_1118499&cid=db&source=ams&sourceId=3690171
Sobia - ISD
may be developing countries and NOT third world please
well, and near the international borders we have some impacts as well
For the faculty training. I noticed each department has regular team meeting and share their idea on how to deliver content and activity. Also our learning technology team send out Tips and free webinar information. Also support team created one on one and team training scheduling information by setting up cleanly. We also create a self-enroll training session for remorte learning.
Who trusts Betsy DeVos to do anything to benefit ALL students?
And with public libraries being closed, most people who go to libraries for internet access and computer use, are now additionally set back. Access needs to be provided to address all these stakeholders.
SoCal/Mexican border we have frequent connectivity issues due to signal deficits/overlap
Universal access to internet is one of the goals to the low-earth orbit satellites and constellation systems being launched by SpaceX and others.
We heavily use students on ALL tech pieces - big answer to multiple issues.
However, it doesn't do anything for those underserved areas in the near term.
Right. That's my point.
We taxpayers paid for the internet. We should demand the internet we need.
I know some districts are distributing paper packets.
Not sure how the feedback happens
Will close out in sec to stop record but can stay online
Cost is a REAL BARRIER to entry
It is time to move forward in higher education.
Well, as long as education is viewed solely as a way to make money, then there will be ppl left behind.
Our local school district talked about using bus drivers to deliver instructional packets to students homes that don't have access to internet.
This was a great session!
We need a foundational level access requirement that everyone has.
@Seung, our training is similar, I believe we have a wonderful training and development plan, of course, we continuously build on that plan, https://spark.adobe.com/page/MIZRq7IBB6Ng7/
at least dial up even....
Thank you all so much!
