Description

The theme of this small panel discussion will focus on the long-term curation of open and mostly open access courseware assets; however, this focus is centered on balancing student engagement through re/mixed and re/used media and their respective tools and knowledge management principles. This panel will seek to open a dialogue with all levels of instruction from the students and online staff and faculty to the departments of Administration and Information Technology. In the rapid advance toward the worthwhile goal of offering equal access to education and providing more opportunities for non-traditional students through online classes and MOOC’s there is little on how to better curate and preserve the increasing number of born-digital assets and information about how to balance this with the growing number of mixed media tools available is sparse at best.

How can online instructors and professors integrate new tools and methodologies into their curriculum to better engage with their students? How will these new tools and methods like gamification, video sharing and hangout sites, and other social media platforms be effectively used, curated, archived and accessed by both student and instructor alike? Additionally, what are the logistical, intellectual property and academic freedom issues that might and will continue to rise in the future with online classes? This panel will touch on all of these questions briefly in the hope that this conversation will continue to encourage further debate on these issues.
