  1. WAOL Advisory Group Monday, August 20, 2012

  2. Agenda: • State Authorization • Blackboard Collaborate Check-in • Tegrity Check-in • ANGEL Check-in • eLearning Community • Canvas Update • Open Course Library • OCL Research Next meeting – September 17th– same time, same place

  3. State Authorization • If you are enrolling students from Maryland, take a look at what you should do by October 1—their rules change then. • USDOE regulation requiring state authorization was vacated by US District Court and that ruling was upheld June 5 by the US Court of Appeals, and that ruling remanded to DOE.  So it’s still not over.  However, state laws remain on the books. • The regulation was vacated not because the state laws are illegal but because the US Dept of Ed didn’t follow the correct process—so it’s just a technical ruling.  Still must be done. • Remember the requirement to provide complaint contacts for out-of-state students was not vacated. This is for all students. • • More information on this wiki:

  11. OCL Research • The purpose of the study is to investigate the adoption of Open Course Library (OCL) courses within the WA CTC system. • How and to what extent, are open course materials being shared and used? • What are the barriers or keys to the successful adoption of open course materials? • What institutional policies are needed to support the adoption and use of open course materials? • How does the use of open course materials influence student success?

  12. Research Method • Qualitative Study • Focus group with faculty who have experience with OCL course materials • Follow-up phone interviews with focus group participants

  13. Focus Group at Tacoma CC • Participants: 10 faculty members who have experience with OCL course materials to any extent • 1 hour focus group, followed by 30 minutes phone interview

  14. Preliminary finding 1 • Those who decided to adopt the OCL materials liked: • OCL materials being offered as a whole package • OCL courses offers low cost textbook • Proper institutional support. • OCL course quality was impressive

  15. Preliminary finding 2 • Those who decided not to adopt the OCL materials encountered the barriers including: • OCL courses resides in ANGEL. • OCL courses did not offer low cost textbook. • Did not receive proper institutional support. • OCL course quality was not very impressive. • Outdated resources • Course objectives were not aligned with course content • Course did not utilize the proper open resources

  16. Preliminary finding 3 • What faculty consider keys to successful adoption • A community of OCL users • A system where they can continuously improve these courses. • More connection with the authors to ask questions or suggest ideas.
