The following provides additional information about the presentations.

 “Why Web-Enhance Your Traditional Course?” -- Hallie Ray
Abstract: You have access to a Learning Management System (LMS), whether it’s Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas and free CourseSites. But if you teach traditional classes, why would you want to use it? Come learn and share ideas and best practices for saving paper, saving time, and expanding your face-to-face class into the online world. Everyone is welcome—from experienced LMS users to share their practices, to beginners who want to know why it’s a great idea.

“Making Standards Matter: Implementing a New Distance Learning Classroom” -- Patricia Miera and Jessica Rosazza-Williams
Abstract: Faculty feel their academic freedom is too limited by a standard template. Students want an easy to navigate format which allows them to concentrate on the course content. CNM created a course design that allows faculty to express academic freedom, while ensuring courses exhibit best practices as defined by Quality Matters. This session provides an overview of the DL Classroom and discusses how to create a course reflective of QM best practices.
