The focus of this course is twofold. The first emphasis is on the technologies available for distance delivery. The second and primary emphasis is directed toward methods for generating and maintaining communication, designing and developing materials, incorporating interactive and collaborative learning activities in both synchronous and asynchronous distance education in a workshop format.
Section 801 will meet asynchronously, fully online, with no regular meeting times required. Some weeks, in order to get the full experience of the topic being covered, students will have the option to meet with the rest of the class as we test web meeting software live.
Section 802 meets synchronously at a distance using various web meeting software. Students will experience different modes of interaction at a distance, including telepresence robots, for a hybrid experience, geographically dispersed but chronologically together. Section 802 will have technology based synchronous meeting times on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 pm Mountain Daylight Time. (Students taking this course on-campus will also meet at this same time.)
