College Student Studying


Activities and Engagement

  • MERLOT’s Searchable Database: a curated collection of free and open online resources, including reusable learning objects.
  • 16 Technology Tools for Engaging Students: Idea Works’ quick slideshare overview of interactive technologies
  • Moving a Face-to-Face Course Online Without Losing Student Engagement (a Faculty Focus article)
  • Wiki Education Foundation gives professors the technical assistance they need to assign students, instead of writing a research paper, to write a brand-new Wikipedia entry, or expand an existing entry, on any topic in virtually any discipline. Students will pick up communication, media literacy, and critical thinking skills. Along the way, they’ll expand and improve the public’s access to knowledge of your field. It’s a win-win that inspires students in ways a traditional term paper never will.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
