View the article from Campus Technology

Los Angeles Community College District Moves to Live@edu

Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) is providing all of its students, faculty, and staff with accounts for cloud communication and collaboration tools using Microsoft's Live@edu.
....
Live@edu accounts will also be unified across all nine LACCD colleges, so students and faculty who study or teach at multiple colleges will have a single account, simplifying inter-college communications and eliminating the need for students and faculty to juggle multiple e-mail accounts.

Los Angeles Community College District serves more than 250,000 students each year. It is the largest community college district in the United States, with nine colleges serving 36 cities in the greater Los Angeles area.

FREE College Courses

As educators, we should be in the forefront of challenging and changing paradigms, especially those that pertain to education. Our pedagogy is being challenged right now as many schools are offering FREE online classes — from art history, anthropology and literature to engineering, biology, and math. Schools in the forefront include Johns Hopkins, MIT, Harvard, U of Michigan, UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Stanford and Yale.

Here is one link to the story of the changing paradigm for teaching and learning. There are other links, but this one should get you started viewing the fantastic opportunities that await our students — and, consequently, ourselves.

How should we as Guam educators prepare our students for this happening? How should we begin to take advantage of these great FREE gifts?

3-For-1 Tech Tool

I have been experimenting lately with a tool that offers faculty the opportunity use this tool for more than one activity. It is a bookmarking tool with which you can share your resources with others and, in addition, use the tool to create presentations using “live” websites, that is, the websites are accessible with your mouse.

LiveBinders

An additional bonus is that this wonderful tool is FREE. Access the website and view the 2-minute tutorial video. If you need an additional nudge, view a few of the binders that already exist.
